"For the first time since the New Orleans Hornets opened training camp nearly a month ago, shooting guard Eric Gordon participated in a practice without limitations Sunday at the Alario Center.
Gordon, who missed all eight preseason games because of a sore right knee, said he took part in a short scrimmage and did every drill his teammates did Sunday at the Alario Center.
"I've been doing contact a little bit, participating fully,'' Gordon said. "I've been doing whatever the team is doing. I'm just trying to keep progressing. I'm rehabbing but I'm doing a lot more activity with the team.''
Whether he plays in Wednesday night's opener against the San Antonio Spurs still has not been determined. Gordon said the decision will be left up to Coach Monty Williams and the team's training staff but it appears likely for him to play if he continues to practice without having any setbacks.
