New Orleans Pelicans big man Anthony Davis was forced to miss Wednesday's loss to the Atlanta Hawks with a hip injury he suffered in Tuesday's win over the Dallas Mavericks. While he was originally listed as "day to day," the Pelicans say there is no timetable for his return:
''I think it's one of those situations where we'll just have to evaluate each day to see where he is,'' Gentry said. ''It could be something fairly minor or could be something that's not. I don't have any idea right now. 'He'll stay on the road trip. We have our guys with us and the treatment will be right here. We'll see how it goes in Toronto. They gave an MRI early on, so everything seems fine. It just a typical thing really, so we'll have to see how it heals and what goes on with it.''
The MRI revealed no structural damage, meaning he should be back sooner rather than later.
Davis is the third starter that is sidelined with an injury. Forward Quincy Pondexter hasn't played this season after having left knee surgery in May, and Tyreke Evans had surgery to remove bone chips from his foot. There is also no timetable for his return.
Davis is averaging 24 points, nine rebounds, and 2.6 blocks per game this season.Back to the New Orleans Pelicans Newsfeed
