The Charlotte Bobcats PR twitter account reported the following on Gordon's status.
Gordon hasn't played since January 10, when he scored two points on just 1-of-7 shooting, in ten minutes against the Timberwolves.  He's played in only 17 games this season and averaging a career low 14.8 minutes per game, down from his career average of 28.5 minutes per game.

Gerald Henderson has been starting at shooting guard, with Chris Douglas-Roberts backing him up, in Gordon's absence.  Douglas-Roberts is averaging 4.8 points and 1.9 rebounds per game. Expect Gordon to regain his backup role behind Henderson upon his return.

Gordon is in his tenth season out of Connecticut.  He's struggling this season shooting just 35.7 percent from the floor and averaging 5.4 points per game.  In 686 career games, Gordon is averaging 15.6 points and 2.6 rebounds per game.
