Update on Eric Gordon from Coach Sampson

ks.jpgIndiana coach Kelvin Sampson was on the Zonebusters with Rick Bozich and Jody Demling moments ago and had the following to say about Eric Gordon’s injury status:

He’s doing a lot better today. That was a nasty fall. I didn’t really see it. I was blocked out when he fell, so I didn’t realize how bad it was until after the game. He didn’t come down directly on the tailbone, it was more to the side.

It was a really nasty fall. We’re not practicing today, but he couldn’t practice today if we were. Hopefully he’ll be able to go on Thursday.

Sampson added that he expects Gordon to be ready to go on Saturday against Kentucky.

    The good news is the EJ will recover 100% but the Ky game well see. Tidbits we all know we will have Crawford but did anyone know that Ky just lost a decent player? Alex Legion decided that he would transfer even after he played during the N.C.game. Alex played in all 6 UK’s games, starting twice avg 17.5 min/game. He’s a 6’5″ guard that typically came off the bench 6th man. He is clearly in their top 5 in pts/avg and 2nd best 3pt shooter. This will clearly put them behind the 8 ball on guard play. If we can own the block then we can win this game.

    He’s 18, he heals fast. He will be good to go Saturday. Probably just a deep bruise.

    I’m sure he wants to play in this game more than we want him to. You know he wants a piece of UK. He’ll play. If he doesn’t, then I’d assume he has a serious injury. I bet he lights ’em up.

  • Gotta agree with you MikeyD. I expect EJ to come out and play a great game.
