Hornets Increasing Gordon’s Minutes
New Orleans Hornets Coach Monty Williams said shooting guard Eric Gordon continues to show signs that he is becoming more game ready and they will proceed with plans to increase his minutes slightly on Saturday against the Dallas Mavericks.
“He’s getting more and more game ready,” Williams said. “It’s tough to go from not playing at all to jumping right into an NBA game. Today was a good time to watch him in game situations and watch other guys play around him. ‘He’s certainly not going to play 40 minutes, but we’re going to start increase his minutes.”
