Williams: Gordon to play, won't start vs. Bobcats
Gordon only played in nine games last season for the Hornets after being acquired in a trade. He had arthroscopic surgery on his knee last season because of a bone bruise.
Williams wouldn't say how many minutes Gordon will play, but says he doesn't plan to reign him in.
"I won't put any restrictions on his ability because he's a guy who can change a game," Williams said.
As for the Bobcats, coach Mike Dunlap says Byron Mullens will not play and is still "long way off" with a left ankle sprain.
