Eric Gordon is not likely to play in Saturday's preseason opener


quote:

New Orleans Pelicans guard Eric Gordon is not likely to play in Saturday's preseason opener against the Houston Rockets because coach Monty Williams wants him to gradually build up his conditioning.

``If I had to put a time on it, I would say in another two weeks he’ll be ready to play in a game,'' Williams said after Monday's first opening training camp practice.

Gordon underwent surgery on his left ankle in May, but during Monday's media day he deemed himself healthy and ready to participate in training camp. `` I don’t want him to get out there and try to go full bore and pull a hamstring or something,'' Williams said. ``He hasn’t been going as long as the other guys have (with offseason conditioning work).''

If this leads to another "out indefinitely" on opening day I'll probably end up banned

Well, I guess this is the thread that will finally bring me back to this board after a boring few weeks.

I don't really see what the big deal is

He was just cleared recently and is just getting himself up to speed

Nothing to see here imo

Exactly. It was expected. I didn't expect to see much of him in the preseason. As long as he makes it to the opener healthy and in basketball shape, I'm not sure why people have their panties in a bunch. This is a good thing as the new guys and the young guys will get a lot of time find their roles.

Right

We can see how rivers and our other guys can do.

It's pivotal to develop those guys for the long run because you need depth to win in this league.

I like the question of the day better....

Which player should the Pelicans start at center?
Greg Stiemsma, Jeff Withey and Jason Smith will battle for the spot.


ETA: Eric Gordon; Who cares didn't read

Meh. I'll care if he's not going full speed in 2-3 weeks.
