Cornerstone: "I doubt there will be any setbacks from now on"

quote: Eric Gordon should finally play on Saturday and he thinks his lingering right knee issues the last year are in the past.
"I doubt there will be any setbacks from now on, unless I really banged it or something," Gordon told The Times-Picayune, "I don't think there will be any setbacks like that. We figured out the problem and we worked on it while I was out in L.A. Things are good. It is all about the conditioning now at this point."
Gordon's minutes will be limited at first as his game fitness returns and it has not been determined if he'll start or come off the bench.
"When I talked to head coach (Monty Williams), I think it's probably around 25 minutes or so," Gordon said. "That will be something for him to figure out on having me out there. There will definitely be limited minutes."
