Recommendation: Gordon still hasn't played in a preseason game, and Friday night against Miami will be his last chance to do so. Even if he misses that game, Gordon could still play in the Hornets' regular season opener next Wednesday. Just don't get too discouraged if he gets off to a slow start this season, as that's to be expected for a player in his circumstances. Gordon is dealing with the dual challenges of coming back from a major injury and growing accustomed to new teammates. Yes, he was with the Hornets last season, but he only played in nine games and the team underwent an offseason makeover.
