Shocking!

Eric Gordon will not play in the New Orleans Hornets' regular season opener against the Spurs.

Gordon missed the entire preseason due to his persistent right knee issues.

Monty Williams said Gordon is likely out indefinitely.

Weaksauce. I think Brandon Roy sprinkled some of his broken knee dust around the league.

Been reading around Twitter, and a lot of people are suspicious of this. Some are saying he wants out of NO. He was apparently cleared by doctors to play, but chose to sit out. Weird.

A trade in the near future?

That doesn't seem to make much sense; he's playing with the favourite for ROY and it'll be a great team in two seasons' time. Rivers/Gordon/Aminu/Anderson/Davis Should be a great starting five once the Spurs and Mavs are no longer contenders. Them and the up-and-coming Blazers.

New Orleans Hornets guard Eric Gordon says he experienced setback in recovery | NOLA.com

Quote:
"Right now he's in the mode of rehabbing and trying to get his knee where he feels comfortable," Williams said. "He's working with our medical staff, which I think is phenomenal. They've worked on my knee and even though I can't play, I feel really good.

"But it's one of those situations that I don't have a lot of information because I only get enough to know that he's not playing. That's pretty much all I want most days. Obviously, there's something he's not comfortable with and the doctors may feel the same way. So he's probably going to see a number of doctors to make sure that there's nothing that's going to cause him further damage."

Read the whole article because it does sound a bit odd.

I'd compare him to Greg Oden. Eric Gordon hasn't grabbed a basketball in what, like 3 years?

If I Monty I'd him sit down and tell him that the Hornets aren't going to trade you until you've actually played a few games and made some contribution to the team - even if it's just to improve your trade value which is in the crapper right now. :cookie:

The youtube clip and article makes it seem like hes sitting because he doesnt want to be there. The doctors couldnt find a problem, so Gordon told them theres something definitely wrong, and now Gordons saying hes getting a 3rd or 4th opinion this weekend. The whole situation is weird. If the doctors didnt find any damage to the knee, how bad can it really be with todays technology and advance in medicine that can find even the smallest thing wrong with anything?

Sounds like Gordon just doesn't want to be there....

Marriage of Hornets, Eric Gordon needs to end quickly


I would LOVE for BC to make a play for him.

Something like Jose + Ross for Gordon

NOH is going to want to cut that salary and Jose's expiring does just that. Also gives them another young SG in Ross to develop along with Rivers.

PG - Lowry
SG - Gordon
SF - DD
PF - Amir
C - Jonas

6th - Bargs

That lineup would make me VERY, very happy.

Naturally, if they'd be willing to take Bargs instead of Jose I'd do THAT instead lol.
