    Eric Gordon's injury problems (and that they shy away from restricted FA) could keep the Pacers from heavily pursuing him this summer.

    @mg_indy wonder if @JeffRabjohns will still be pushing his boy EG as hard after his latest setback. EG has played more than 62 gms only once

    Eric Gordon needs surgery and will miss 6 weeks, NOH announced. Anyone still think Stern was wrong to let him go to restricted free agency?

    Eric Gordon’s nightmare season continues.

    It began with the young shooting guard being shipped from the Los Angeles Clippers to the New Orleans Hornets as the key piece in return for Chris Paul.

    After making the game-winning shot in a season-opening victory over Phoenix, Gordon sat out four games with a bruised knee. He played once more and has not seen any action since.

    When the extension deadline rolled around, Gordon and agent Rob Pelinka could not get a deal from the Hornets, who are owned by the NBA. The league has made no secret about limiting the team’s expenses to make it more attractive to a potential buyer – none of whom have come forward.

    On Monday night, the Hornets announced that Gordon will need arthroscopic surgery on his knee and will miss another six weeks, bringing his potential return to the cusp of April.

    “After consulting with our medical staff, we concluded that surgery was the best route and in the best interest of Eric for the long term. We had hoped with rest and rehab, Eric’s knee would have healed,” Hornets GM Dell Demps said in a statement. “Eric is eager to return to the court and we are confident Hornet fans will get to see him soon.”

    If by “soon” you mean before the first pitch of baseball season, well, yeah, sure.

    The Hornets improved to 5-23 with Monday’s 86-80 win over Utah. They had lost 17 of their previous 18 games.

    Despite the injury...I can see Bird rolling the dice and making a run at EJ.

    The question...obviously...is how much of an offer to make that will make Stern/Hornets blink given the apparent interest in limiting how much $$$ that they want to have on the books and taking into account his injury history.

    As I said in the other thread...I want to at least know that the Pacers made a run at EJ.

    I think the Pacers should pass on him. He can't seem to stay healthy.

    I'm guessing it was more than a bruise.

    I wish they'd just say what is wrong with it, it'll come out sooner or later.

    I'd offer him a one year deal. That way he gets a year to prove his worthiness for FA. So he might be stuck in NO for another year.

    Tough blow. Definitely just flushed any hopes of a max contract away.

    I think part of him missing so many games this year could have to do with the fact that he just simply doesn't want to be a Hornet. It's happened with a lot of stars. The only way I want him on this team is signing him as a free agent.

    It kind of depends on what is wrong with his knee. Others have come back and played just fine after knee problems... like David West.

    If they are willing to take a 20million $$ gamble with David West I don't see why they wouldn't with EJ if they like him.

    Nobody has knee surgery because they don't want to be on a team.

    That's too bad. It sounded like surgery was needed a few weeks ago, but I guess they tried to wait it out.

    At this point, the whole "max or qualifying offer and UFA" seems like a pipe dream for his representation. I'm not saying I'm a doctor or something, but if the Hornets offer him something like even 5/$45 he HAS to take it with his history.

    Far as us going for him, don't know yet, but not a fan at this point, have to see what this injury is. Sucks, he's the once in a generation perfect storm of young superstar-ish player that wants to play here and fans would adore. Until Ronnie Johnson puts up 18/10 as a frosh anyway.

    At a 5yr/$45 mil contract...I'd take him at that price despite his injury history.

    If I'm the Hornets with their situation, bet your *** I'd love that. If I'm us, and we offer the equivalent 4/36 or whatever, I'm pretty damn antsy about that. Could wind up being a pretty nice steal. could just as easily, probably more likely, end up being an albatross contract. EJ's injuries before seemed like a lot of fluke unlucky stuff, broken wrist, sprains, random stuff. Now...

    They're different in my opinion, EJ is hurt quite a bit. West has been healthy most of his career.

    I don't really like his game, but you might be able to convince me to trade Pendergraph and a 2nd for Durant. Although Durant's contract might make me reconsider that position.
