Yeah, I'm seriously trying to hold back pure anger right now. :-X

Here's where it seems to be at - the doctors think he should be able to play but Gordon is continuing to complain about some pain - that he doesn't feel right. !+) Make what you will of it but the Hornets will release a statement tomorrow.

Williams was uncertain what Gordon's current symptoms were, whether there was swelling in addition to the pain Gordon said he was having Tuesday.

"He probably does feel pain; that would be the only reason why a guy can't play," Williams said. "For me to try to read an MRI ... I'll find out more as we go forward. I try to not get into all that because that would just make me upset."

Williams said on Monday he would check with team physician Scott Montgomery to ascertain if playing Gordon would cause additional damage.

"I've checked with Doc," Williams said, "but for him to explain to me what's going on with his body and then have Eric feel a certain way doesn't matter. You know what I'm saying? If Doc says one thing and the guy is feeling another, then you have to . . . what am I supposed to say?

"I'm sure it's got to be medical. A guy just can't not play. It's got to be medical. At this point of the year, everybody is excited to play. I'm sure it's medical."

The diagnosis: you stopped me from going to Phoenix Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome.

Does this mean that Xavier Henry may have even a little bit of value in leagues now?

Microfracture surgery may be a possible remedy to Eric Gordon's knee injury, according to ESPN.com.
Gordon's right knee has been one of the more mysterious injuries in the past couple years and microfracture doesn't seem like a far-fetched idea for the 23-year-old guard. Microfracture was once a death sentence for guys like Penny Hardaway, but players like Jason Kidd have been able to remain on the court. Gordon owners should weigh their options on whether he's more help than harm on their rosters.

The Hornets must regret matching the Suns offer sheet now.

The Gordon news just keeps on coming, with a different spin every time. There's talk of microfracture surgery, but this latest report would indicate that he might be back around Christmas time, if not before. As usual, he's a bigger headache to own than any other player these days, and we're guessing we'll get more updates in the near future. Holding him in a daily league seems like more trouble than it's worth at this point, while Greivis Vasquez and Austin Rivers should continue to benefit from his extended absence. Vasquez is a must-own player at this point.

It appears his knee is treading a fine line with microfracture as a last resort. :-o

Has anyone stated what exactly is wrong with his knee? All I get is that it is hurt, it is sore. Suggesting microfracture surgery without saying what is wrong seems odd too.
Yes, Warriors sold at last!

Nope. I've been harping this point like a madman among fellow friends/fans. So much time missed and yet zero conclusive reports.

Unfortunately, my paranoid brain also announced that a 4-6 week time frame fits too well with Dec. 15 (first date he can be traded). O:-)
