Hornets Injury News: Eric Gordon Out Indefinitely

New Orleans Hornets guard Eric Gordon was not ready for the team’s season opener, and coach Monty Williams tells Jim Eichenhofer of Hornets.com that he considers the 23-year-old to be “out indefinitely.”

Gordon was able to suit up for only nine of the Hornets’ 66 games last season after being acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers.

There are questions surrounding his sore right knee, as all the Hornets will say is that he’s set to miss time. Williams expanded on his initial comment saying that the team is waiting to get more clarity on the ailment.

Rookie guard Austin Rivers will start in place of Gordon. Offseason acquisition Roger Mason Jr. also figures to see an increased share of playing time with Gordon out.
