    ESPN: Gordon presented with option of micro-fracture surgery as potential remedy

    No firm decisions have been made as New Orleans Hornets guard Eric Gordon continues to seek additional opinions on his troublesome right knee, but microfracture surgery has been presented as one of a number of potential remedies, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.

    Gordon is scheduled to consult with a knee specialist this weekend as the Hornets try to pinpoint a definitive course of action -- whether that's a surgical procedure or a revamped rehabilitation program -- after their highest-paid player was shelved indefinitely this week.

    The recovery plan, sources said, is unlikely to be finalized before early next week

    This guy is never going to be the same or ever play on a consistent basis. They'll never be able to trade him. No one is going to take on the salary. Matching just hamstringed this franchise for four years.

    That's okay. I mean, it's not like there's a budding superstar who we'd have to surround with talent to convince him to stay in our small market, right?

    Bingo. All the talent in the world is meaningless if you can't play.

    So Demps and the Hornet's organization knew about this last season and still decided to match his contract?

    I would take any combination of expiring scrubs in exchange for Gordon at this point.

    Well, There are a lot of parallels between disaster in New York and New Orleans. The disaster, and now superstars at max money who won't play 10% of their games that are constantly getting knee surgeries after being proclaimed to be "healthy".

    How long would he be out if he takes this? He should just get the Kobe treatment.

    Pretty sure it's measured in months. I guess it varies but from what I recall the average is like four to six months. And, of course, results aren't guaranteed.

    As much as I love Dell, he made his first major mistake in matching that offer.

    So in Eric Gordon time it would be...?.... ooooh I'd estimate 2 1/2 years.

    It's nice that they have found out what's been disturbing him. Hopefully there's a treatment and he should recover completely after.
    I don't any reason to be mad the guy right now. He is the one who's suffering !

    Actually, it's the franchise that's suffering from his horrible contract. Meanwhile he's collecting a pile of money. I don't hate him I just want him gone.

    i'm not sure he did. i mean we'd probably be biting his head off if he didnt. i dont like it but i dont blame him for it.

    for the record i want him (eric) gone but Dell had to do what he had to do.

    I'd agree, but if the medical staff gave him a clean bill of health, I wouldn't put all the blame on Dell.

    Personally, I think EG takes a hammer to his knee every night before bed.

    Its stated in the article that the approached him about having Microfracture surgery during last season. He opted to have the scope instead because he wanted to go though free agency. I think the reason the Hornets went through with matching is because at the time his knee was fine and according to the MRIs, even now, there was no structural damage to keep him from playing. So you can't put it all on the Hornets when at the time he was recovering fine. He was even well enough to try out for Team USA.

    Eric could have nipped this whole thing in the bud if he would have just gotten the surgery during last season BUT he went for the money instead....

    Not if we found out today what we found out and he was in PHX.
