    I find it hard to even blame Eric Gordon for his injuries, it's like this team is cursed...

    Honestly at this point in his game, is this really that big of a deal? Davis is a much bigger story, I hope he has no long standing effects from this darn concussion.

    "Rivers, who participated in the shootaround, said he thought he was playing but the Hornets made a last-second decision to hold him out."

    Sounds like Monty is putting white gloves and pink drawers on Rivers.
    hahaha, I'd have to agree.

    Not to sound selfish, but as a fan of this team that lives outside of the FSNO viewing area (I live in Maryland), the only time I get to see these guys play is when its nationally televised. And I would love to see a game with the FULL TEAM for once!!!! They are killing me with these "injuries". I have been waiting all summer to watch these young guys play. Its frustrating....

    If it is that frustrating cough up the money and get League Pass.

    This team does certainly seem like professionals at taking the hype out of a game. I wonder how many people have said "yeah, think I'll stay home tonight now that Davis and Rivers are out."

    I know these early season games aren't make-or-break, but this string of injures is just ridiculous.
    With purple and pinstripes from days gone by, I trumpet Hugo's name to the NOLA sky. When rebranders and posers abuse their might, beware my power, TEAL LANTERN'S LIGHT!

    Forever hating the nickname, the logos, and the colors. Still backing the team I've loved since 1994.

    Stolen name. Stolen colors. Stolen identity. Still the same old worthless Slobcats. Suck sludge, Charlotte.

    Anyone who saw the first 3 games should still be crazy excited to see this team. A Team full of Warriors (and an Eric Gordon)

    I agree, but I've allows believed that the NBA is a league where the fans come out to see individuals, where as the NFL is a league where fans come out to see teams.

    We can still take this one. Our opponent is pretty banged up as well. Look at it this way, at least our rookies won't hit their wall as soon as most.

    God, I hope not. Last thing AD need is another concussion.

    I have never seen anyone miss a game for a finger that isn't even broken. Tape that bad boy up and let's go. Something else going on here.

    Rivers not playing isn't that big of a deal right now for me. He's a marginal player and the team will be fine without him. Not seeing Davis play really sucks, but I'm ok with making sure he's healthy. Concussions are no joke. Any slight movement can aggravate symptoms.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston
