New Orleans guard Eric Gordon will be sidelined indefinitely with an injured right knee, Hornets coach Monty Williams said Wednesday. Gordon had just begun practicing full speed with the Hornets on Sunday and had told The Times-Picayune on Tuesday there was still pain the knee, which underwent an arthroscopic cleanout on Feb. 14. He was limited to nine games last season. "He's going to be out," Williams said. "The way I understand it, he's going to be out indefinitely until we get some more clarity on what's going on so I don't have to answer these questions every day and give you guys the update. We'll just go from there." Gordon was not immediately made available for comment Wednesday, the Times-Picayune reported. He was a restricted free agent after last season and the Hornets matched a four-year, $58 million offer from the Phoenix Suns to keep him in New Orleans. "It's more than a blow," Williams told The Times-Picayune. "It is what it is. At the same time, you guys have been with me here through my coaching tenure and it's always been like this. I'm well-prepared for these kinds of experiences." Austin Rivers, a rookie from Duke and the son of Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers, is expected to start in Gordon's place Wednesday night against the San Antonio Spurs.
