The New Orleans Pelicans are the recipients of some bad news on Sunday. With the team looking to continue working on their chemistry, young star forward Anthony Davis suffered a broken hand in the first quarter of the team’s match up against the New York Knicks.

Davis broke a bone in his left hand, which will keep him out indefinitely. It is a devastating blow to the Pelicans.

The Pelicans announced Davis’ injury on Twitter after he had left the court:

This season, Davis was averaging 19.6 points, 10.6 rebounds and 3.9 blocks per game.

Considering how deep the Western Conference is and the difference maker that Davis can be on the court, the Pelicans could be lost without it.

Without Davis in the line up, Ryan Anderson will see an increase in his playing time as they look to make up for the loss on one of their key players.
