Anthony Davis injury: New Orleans Pelicans’ power forward is day-to-day


New Orleans Pelicans’ star power forward Anthony Davis was injured in a 108-89 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night.

Davis sprained his left shoulder in the second quarter. He left the game and did not return.

“It’s just part of the league,”  Pelicans’ head coach Monty Williams said. “When you play as hard as AD, or any of those guys who go after it every single night, they’re going to have bumps and bruises. We don’t know what’s wrong with him yet. It could be nothing. It could be a day-to-day thing. We’ve got to let the doctors do their (work). He plays at such a high level. He takes a beating when he goes to the basket. He’s going to get bumps and bruises.”

On Thursday, the official blog of the Pelicans gave an update on his status.

The New Orleans Pelicans announced just prior to their Thursday afternoon practice in Phoenix that All-Star power forward Anthony Davis will be listed as day-to-day with a left shoulder sprain.

Davis is averaging 20.2 points, 10.2 rebounds, 3.0 blocks, 1.5 steals and 1.4 assists per game.
