    I kind of figured that we where saving Gordon for the games that count. Rivers was more of a question mark after the game against the Heat.

    Agree on both counts. Glad to hear some good news from the Gordon injury front.

    Let's hope he doesn't pull that in the season, but replace preseason with traded to Golden State.

    I really wonder if he was "pullin a B.D." or was the team just being smart with it? I honestly don't know... Guess we'll see.

    If he was 'pullin a B.D.' why wouldn't he continue to pull it? B.D. would continue to pull it.

    I was being facetious of course. In this case, as the case last year, we were invoking it. Deliberately keeping Gordon out for the express purposes of getting this team better players. Only a real injury puts him down again.


    ...now for him to not get hurt again.

    New Orleans Hornets rookie guard Austin Rivers practiced Sunday despite spraining his right ankle twice last week. Rivers said his ankle is sore but not enough to keep him from practicing or playing in this Wednesday's opener against the San Antonio Spurs.

    Hornets Coach Monty Williams said Rivers performed well throughout Sunday's practice.

    ``He's had some issues with that ankle, but to me that's just part of the game,'' Williams said.``When you are that fast and jump that high eventually you're going to come down on somebody's foot.''

    Rivers appeared to roll his ankle after awkwardly falling backward with 1:33 remaining in the third quarter in the Hornets' 96-89 victory against the defending champion Heat Friday. Rivers did not return after playing 24 minutes and scoring six points

    In last Monday’s preseason game against the Dallas Mavericks, Rivers sprained his right ankle after he went down awkwardly. He wore a protective boot to practice the next day and did not play in this past Wednesday’s game against the Houston Rockets at New Orleans Arena.

    Instead of low tops, Rivers wore mid-cut sneakers at practice Sunday to better protect his ankles.

    It's been sure since July. Rivers has a career waiting for him in Hollywood. Boy looked like he got shot with a .50 cal both times. Jeez.

    New Orleans Hornets guard Eric Gordon participates in first contact work Sunday

    For the first time since the New Orleans Hornets open training camp nearly a month ago, shooting guard Eric Gordon participated in a practice without limitations Sunday at the Alario Center.

    Gordon, who missed all eight preseason games because of a sore right knee, said he took part in a shorten scrimmage and did every drill his teammates did Sunday at the Alario Center.

    `` I’ve been doing contact a little bit, participating fully,’’ Gordon said. ``I’ve been doing whatever the team is doing. I’m just trying to keep progressing. I’m rehabbing but I’m doing a lot more activity with the team.’’

    Whether he plays in Wednesday night’s opener against the San Antonio Spurs still has not been determined. Gordon said the decision will be left up to Coach Monty Williams and the team’s training staff but it appears likely for him to play if he continues to practice without having any setbacks.

    ``We’ll see what they got planned for me to do,’’ Gordon said. ``Whether its limited minutes, playing or maybe wait a while. We don’t know for sure.’’

    When asked if Gordon scrimmaged with the team Sunday, Coach Monty Williams said he didn’t want to get into all of that. However, Williams did say Gordon looks stronger every day.

    He's impressing with his toughness though.

    The second time Rivers fell my whole family was freaking out thinking he tore something until he walked off on his own. Such an awkward looking fall. Thank God he's alright though.
