I wasn't suggesting that you were providing a medical opinion and my reply wasn't meant to be hostile. I was simply providing my opinion as a physician, though my specialty is not orthopedic surgery. Both players fractured their tibia. PG also fractured his fibula, while Gordon dislocated his ankle. There are obviously degrees of severity with fractures, but I am not privy to the finer details of Gordon's case. He might very well return to "basketball activities" before the end of the season, but I would be absolutely amazed if he could provide a meaningful contribution in a game situation in <12 months.
