Jimmy Smith, NOLAcom:

New Orleans Hornets shooting guard Eric Gordon will be out indefinitely, Coach Monty Williams said Wednesday morning, though neither Williams nor Gordon could shed any light on the severity of the right knee problem that kept the team's max money player sidelined through the entirety of training camp.

Gordon was instructed by a member of the Hornets' media relations staff not to speak with reporters and was escorted to the locker room after shootaround by the team's security chief.

"He's going to be out," Williams said. "The way I understand it, he's going to be out indefinitely until we get some more clarity on what's going on so I don't have to answer these questions every day and give you guys the update. We'll just go from there."

Rookie Austin Rivers will start Wednesday night against the San Antonio Spurs at the two-guard spot.

This guy is as fragile as a China doll. Has he ever played a complete season? He was given a max contract to not play I guess. So glad he is gone

Well, yes the fact that he is injured again makes this trade look good. However, if Austin Rivers turns into a stud I wont feel so good about the trade

We got the best point guard in the world! Austin Rivers will be a Monte Ellis type at best unless he decides to be a true point guard. Plus we kept Bledsoe, who is becoming more and more like a true point guard.

Regardless if Gordon was healthy or not, I'm glad we don't have him. I don't have anything against the guy, but he cries about playing time, then he feels that the Hornets don't want him there, then gets the max contract he wants and lays an egg. Wow! I'm a member on the hornets forum and those guys are not happy right now, only thing missing are the pitchforks and torches. If EG doesn't come back this year, I would give him one more year and this his butt gets traded. If he goes on and become the second coming of MJ, oh well, but right now he is too expensive to sit around.

He definitely has some proving to do. Many of you believe he has already proven himself. Well, until he actually plays more than 70 games in a year then I now have doubts about him. I'm kind of mad myself because I am a Hornets fan also (but CP first Smile ) so to see him go down is sad but I expected it. Foolish of me to think this was his comeback year.

Olshey actually lost out to Kupcake. If Stern hadn't stepped in on the Hornets' behalf, we'd be watching CP3 get his ring in purple, and probably crying because Blake didn't re-sign.

^However it went down, Olshey did made the trade to get us CP3 and Bledsoe, keep Bledsoe out of the CP3 trade and sign Billups when Chauncey said...don't do it or..

Thanks and good luck in Portland...cause your going to need it, lol.

Rumor is he's not injured at all and is trying to force a trade. Has turned into one of the biggest douches in the NBA.

Sadly I think it's true also, all of the hornets forums are talking about it.

W-O-W!!!!

The Hornets escorted him out without letting him talk to anyone? Williams comment says it all. I bet he's milking this like he did with us but the Hornets are not taking his crap. I bet the doctors cleared him but Gordon is making excuses not to play. What a wuss!!!!

It's true, you can tell he is not telling the whole truth in his words. He says that there is no sign of a tear or anything but he may be out the entire season? Wow! As a Hornets fan, this guy needs to go.
