Gordon's health/status

When will Gordon be back to 100%? He's been back for over a month and played in 15 games. I'm pretty sure he isn't playing today due to the back-to-back games. So I'm just curious how long it'll be until he is in "game shape" and ready to go every game..

Next season when we secure a high pick and add additional talent.

i wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't play b2b this season. he was noticeably slower and more gimpy than normal last night. may have been altitude, but i think it's fatigue/the knee is still bothering him

I think it was due to the fact he was very close to phoenix which made him sad

In a sense, it may appear this way, but I don't think it is to get better draft pick odds. I think Monty genuinely wants to see what he has with his young fringe players (Henry, Rivers, Miller).

A big complaint from a lot of people on this board has been why doesn't Mason play that much even though he has been more effective than Henry and Miller as of late. I think Monty and Mason know that his future with this team doesn't extend beyond this season, we don't know that about Henry and Miller, so Monty is giving them the minutes to see if they can be apart of this team going forward.

This.

Although I have a question about last night. I wasn't able to watch the game but I saw someone ask in the game thread why Monty hasn't put in Rivers in the second half after he had a solid first half. Why not play your young player if he's playing well?

He played some in the 2nd half

For the right contract, Mason has earned a role on this team. I hope he retur s with a friendly number.

I have seen it too when I watch him play. He does have a slight limp at times or grimaces quite a bit. His whole injury situation is so mysterious you can't help but wonder if there is more too it. Like they know he will need surgery eventually, but he just won't go through with it.

not enough, and not until either late third or early 4th, IIRC.

This is definitely a real possibility.

Yeah, when I go back and read this article (LINK ), I get real nervous, like it isn't settled yet. I still don't think it's healed or been properly treated. Hopefully I'm wrong, I just don't ever remember someone having these same type of problems that used this method of treatment..
