Eric Gordon has had a rocky career since becoming a New Orleans Hornet. Last season, he missed 57 games during the 66 game schedule, thanks to a right knee injury. The Hornets finished with the worst record in the Western Conference. There was a lot of hope surrounding the Hornets before the start of the 2012-2013 season. The team is under new ownership and they drafted Kentucky star, Anthony Davis, with the #1 pick in the draft.
It was announced that Eric Gordon would be out indefinitely because of a right knee injury, which is the same knee that caused him to only play nine games last season. Eric Gordon has stated that he is unsure if or when he will be able to play because there is still a lot of pain and discomfort in his knee.
