Found October 23, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
Charlotte Bobcats’ guard Ben Gordon had a maintenance procedure done on his right knee last weekend in Phoenix, but returned to practice on Tuesday. He expects to be fine for the season opener on October 30 against the Houston Rockets. As reported by Rick Bonnell of charlotteobserver.com, Gordon indicated he had PRP therapy, in which blood is drawn from the patient, then injected into an injured area of the body, which promotes healing.  After playing one-on-one with teammate James Southerland, Gordon feels ready to go by opening day. “By game night? Yeah, definitely,” Gordon said. “It usually takes about a week for the swelling to go down. I’ll do a little more each day without overdoing it.” Gordon has indicate that he, like other athletes, have had the procedure done before. “It’s pretty basic: Get it done now, so it wouldn’t affect me during the season. Mostly a precautionary thing. I’ll be fine.” Gordon is entering his 10th NBA season out of the University of Connecticut.  He averaged 11.2 points in nearly 21 minutes per game last season, his first with the Bobcats.  Gordon has career averages of 15.9 points, 2.7 assists and2.6 rebounds, in nearly 29 minutes per game.   Read more here: http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2013/10/22/4407248/charlotte-bobcats-guard-ben-gordon.html#.Umf66lOOnTp#storylink=cpy Read more here: http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2013/10/22/4407248/charlotte-bobcats-guard-ben-gordon.html#.Umf66lOOnTp#storylink=cpy Read more here: http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2013/10/22/4407248/charlotte-bobcats-guard-ben-gordon.html#.Umf66lOOnTp#storylink=cpy
