Hornets' Eric Gordon out indefinitely with right knee injury

The Hornets head coach has announced that Eric Gordon will be out indefinitely with recurring right knee trouble.

The injured knee kept Gordon sidelined for all of training camp. Williams doesn't expect Gordon to play until more is known about the knee issue.

"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."

Gordon is an essential piece for the Hornets, but he's struggled to stay healthy. He will start this season sidelined, and played only nine games last season after being traded to the Hornets by the Clippers.

With Gordon sidelined, Roger Mason and rookie Austin Rivers will see increased minutes. Ryan Anderson and No. 1 draft pick Anthony Davis will be expected to carry a larger load offensively.
