Default Cramped season has hurt bunches of players, including Hornets

New Orleans Times-Picayune:

Injuries are not only disrupting the plans of contending teams, but it has impacted rebuilding franchises like the Hornets.

Guard Eric Gordon, who was the centerpiece in the blockbuster trade with the Clippers in exchange for Paul, has missed all but two games because of cartilage damage in his right knee. Entering the All-Star break, the Hornets were without backup forward Carl Landry (knee sprain), center Emeka Okafor (sore left knee) and forward Jason Smith (concussion). In all, the Hornets have had eight players miss at least six games because of injury since the season opened in December.

“I just think guys exhaled when the union disbanded during the lockout and guys figured we wouldn’t play until January,’’ Hornets Coach Monty Williams said. “But I think it caught a lot of guys off guard, and I think that’s why you see so many hamstrings, sore foot and back issues. Guys were not in shape.’’
