    If this is a blessing I guess I should jump in front of a bus since that would be considered a miracle?

    I agree but if he's a key player to this franchise there's no reason to rush him back. Especially this year. Let him recover at 100 %.

    So it does look like he's going to be missing some serious time at least. Maybe not microfracture surgery (remember, there's been no con, but if it's serious enough for that to be an option, it doesn't look too great. However, this can actually be viewed as good thing. Here are some positive spins to this.

    1. With this news, this will force Davis to step up as a leader from the get go and perhaps all of his rookie season. He will be able to adjust to being "the guy" much quicker.

    2. More playing time for Rivers and Miller.

    3. Better draft pick. This is the biggest plus that has to come from this in my opinion. I don't want to say a lock since we never know how good Davis will be, but we now have a very good chance to be at least top 10 in this draft, and with potential to be picking better. Rivers is going to struggle, and Vasquez is a below average starter. Our backcourt is very, very weak right now. Shabazz Muhammed please

    What a mistake it was to match the offer when Phoenix was begging to take him off our hands. The Hornets should fire the doctor who gave the Hornets the all clear to sign. I don't care how much potential or passed performance ANY player has you just don't give him a contract extention when he's damaged goods. It's not good business. It's like buying a car that doesn't even start up.

    Not to play super overly positive guy here, but this could prove to be a good thing in disguise. Austin is going to be thrown into the fire. Which ultimately could result in him progressing better than he would have sitting on the bench. They now have a developing core poised to compete without feeling like, "if we dont have Eric we wont win." They are going to learn quickly what it takes to play in this league. Sign a dude next offseason, collect a lottery pick and if you get a totally healthy and hopefully better frame of mind Gordon back next season his presence will just be a bonus. If not no big deal. Yeah I know the money is tied up. But there is something called amnesty, if necessary. This whole situation is going to be a blessing in disquise.

    Why didn't he "Consult a specialist" before this point? I don't get it.

    Amnesty isn't a option for the Hornet. Gordon was signed after the new CBA.

    Apparently, you do not understand what that thing called the amnesty is and when it can be used.

    I cannot believe that if the Hornets were aware that microfracture surgery was a possibility last year, that they actually matched the offer (and remember, made him a huge offer before that). Why is it that the Hornets consistently have incompetent medical staffs? Benson wasted $58 million. Someone's head will roll.

    I swear... Why do doctors get paid as much as they do?

    "Sure, it's strange that this 'knee bruise' has caused lingering and debilitating pain, but I don't see any reason why we should have to do a bunch of annoying tests just to rule out something like a microfracture... I mean.. we could always do that down the road if it's still bothering him A YEAR LATER."
