The Hornets' final game of an underwhelming road trip will be against skidding Minneapolis, losers of 6 straight as well as 11 of their last 12. The Hornets presumably will have to be without the services of Eric Gordon once again, since they are on the tail end of a road back-to-back.
Speaking of backs, Gordon apparently has a sore one. We shall have to wait and see if this metastasizes into something that will sideline him or if the sore back is just a symptom of playing more games in the last month than he had all of last season.
