I have yet to hear anything new on Eric Gordon today.
Truthfully, though, I think the absolute best scenario could be to keep him out of the Kentucky game all together. In fact, why not just take it extremely slow and keep him out for a few weeks? Jordan Crawford will be back on Saturday. A.J. Ratliff will be back the following Saturday, and so the situation at guard will not be nearly so dire.
But I think we have to look at what is the most important thing here? Is it beating Kentucky? No. I know how personal IU fans make that game but beating Kentucky while taking a chance with Eric Gordon's future is clearly not the answer.
But if he's hurting, and if he has difficulty practicing this week, then I'm just saying let's not lose sight of what is truly important here. From a team standpoint, that would be the Big Ten. From an individual standpoint, that would be making sure EJ is 100 percent ready to go whenever he does take the floor again. I'm guessing there will be some who will want to see him play against Kentucky at any cost. I just want to be on the record as saying that I'm not one of those people.
