The New Orleans Hornets saw their season come and go quickly.

At the beginning of January, the Hornets were swimming along all right, holding a 2-1 record. By the end of the month, the Hornets had a 4-17 record and were far out of contention—9.5 games back in the Southwest Division, for anyone who's counting.

The Hornets have been shaken by injuries in the last month. Eric Gordon, who bumped his knee in a December 26 game, went from being day-to-day to being out indefinitely. Trevor Ariza has missed time. Also, Xavier Henry missed much of the month due to torn ligaments in his ankle suffered in preseason practice with the Memphis Grizzlies before being traded to the Hornets.

The Hornets have fallen off the Western Conference map. Read along to find lessons learned from the Hornets' play in January.
