NBA Regular Season: Utah Jazz at New Orleans Hornets -- Injury Updates

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

NBA Regular Season 2012-2013, Game 2:

Utah Jazz (1-0) @ New Orleans Hornets (0-1)

Injury Update:

.

Hornets Injuries --

  • Eric Gordon (SG) OUT Indefinitely -- Will not play now, or for a while it seems, unspecified right knee pain, "damage", and no time table for a return. The Jazz play the Hornets again on November 28th. I expect to see him back then. (And yes, on the road again)

UPDATE: Eric Gordon is going through some nasty voodoo right now. Apparently now he's going to miss 4-6 weeks as he gets another procedure done. W T F, man.

.

Jazz Injuries --

  • Earl Watson (PG) OUT -- Still rehabbing / recovering from off-season right knee surgery. Getting there, though.
  • Raja Bell (SG) OUT -- Raja Bell is Raja'd.

.

Advantage --

Clearly this is in our advantage. Not having Earl Watson around sucks, but he's getting close. After all . . .

But he's not here yet. Raja being out is for the best. We wouldn't want there to be competition for Randy Foye 's minutes after all. No Gordon means we have one huge weapon we don't have to worry about. (Of course, other guys step up to burn us with regularity -- Ryan Anderson and Jason Smith are going to cause enough problems)
