Eric Gordon 2012-2013 Season Outlook

813 posts in this topic

This guy is unbelievable. Already limited by knee soreness. I vow to never own this guy again. It's not hard to envision him having microfracture in the next few years to be honest.

Per RW front page:

Eric Gordon will be limited in training camp due to "right knee soreness.

Uh oh. It's hard to say whether Gordon has suffered a setback, or if his right knee is going to be a chronic problem, or if the Hornets are just going to be careful with him until the regular season starts, but regardless of what the exact problem is, this is a huge red flag on Gordon for the upcoming season. It's hard to believe the Hornets would have matched Phoenix's four-year offer if his knee didn't check out well with team doctors, so we'll just have to wait as more details are sure to emerge in the near future. But if you have a fantasy hoops draft coming up in the next week or so, it might be wise to let someone else deal with Gordon and his knee again this season. He made it through just nine games last year. Austin Rivers might end up getting the starting SG job if Gordon's knee continues to be a problem.

Yeah, it's depressing. He pretty much has full reign on offense this year with that pathetic backcourt. Looking like Brandon Roy....yet Roy actually played and stuff. Xavier Henry could take his job. Henry may have to play more 2 then they envisioned.

Henry's actually a very capable defender from what I've seen. Offensively, his stats don't look so good, but Monty Williams likes to emphasize defense so it might not be too bad.

The New Orleans Hornets announced today that Hornets guard Eric Gordon will have limited participation in training camp due to soreness in his right knee. Eric experienced soreness in his right knee while participating in voluntary workouts with the team at the end of the summer. Gordon underwent arthroscopic surgery last season on his right knee and returned to full strength at the end of the season and during the Olympic try-outs.

“The team is taking a cautious approach with Eric to give him the best chance to be ready for the season," General Manager Dell Demps said.

unreal

Eric Gordon, who was shut down by the Hornets for all contact work during the first week of training camp, is not expected to do much in the upcoming week, either as he continues to have trouble with his surgically repaired right knee.

The Hornets play three exhibition games in four days this week, beginning Tuesday, and at this point you have to wonder if Gordon will play in a single preseason game. Gordon is dropping quickly on our cheat sheets and things couldn't be looking much worse after the Hornets matched a big offer from the Suns, despite the fact he played in just nine games last season. The Hornets are "erring on the side of caution," but Gordon's knee looks like it could be an issue (again) for most of the season.

So where would you draft him now. He was going in the 30's or 40's before. Is he in the 80's now? if so, I actually thinks that's reasonable value.

EG is one lazy dude. At least Curry tries his best to get back on the floor. Gordon got his contract, he is gonna sit back and get fat now. What a total disgusting waste of talent.

I'll take a flier in round 7 at the earliest. Generally I am avoiding though. I just dont trust him. He may be no lock for 60 games

It is a shame. He is a very talented player. I wouldn't call him lazy. Unfortunately, he just can't stay healthy.

He is really no different than guys like Stephen Curry, Brandon Roy, and Greg Oden. Guys who live their dream to play professional sports only to see injuries greatly impact their career. He is young enough he might be able to get past this and still have a productive career. But, it is unlikely his career will end up as bright as expected. Never say never, though. Look at Grant Hill.

Meanwhile, his stock in fantasy drops greatly. I don't think I could draft him any higher than 8th or 9th round in a 12 team league and even then I would feel like I was taking a big risk.

He is a really good person and very active with youth in the Indianapolis area. I hope he can get healthy and get his career back on track.

the hornets should have let him go to phoenix. serves them right.

I have no clue how good/bad the Hornets' medical staff is, but it really seems like Eric Gordon is someone who could have benefited greatly from the Suns' medical staff.

Please help: Trying to decide to keep Eric Gordon or Paul George this season.

What would you do? Gordon so hard to let go but does George's upside this year adequately compensate for dropping Gordon?

It definitely does imo. He is groomed to be the future star of the franchise and Granger has been declining for years now. If Gordon somehow manages to overcome this horrid streak of injuries he might be the better option but it seems like a really long shot atm.

I'm a big conspiracy theory fan but I think part of the deal Stern made with Tom Benson was you get Anthony Davis but you have to sign Gordon no matter what so it doesn't look like Stern gave up CP3 for nothing. Gordon doesn't want to play there, they have a lot of talented young guards, Gordon has done nothing to earn a MAX contract, why do it?
