Anthony Davis’s Knee Injury Isn’t Serious

Stephen Lew/Icon Sportswire

The New Orleans Pelicans and their fans received quite the scare Friday night when star Anthony Davis had to be carried off the court after suffering a knee injury against the Los Angeles Clippers. However, it appears everybody can breathe a sigh of relief, as the Pelicans have listed Davis as probable for Saturday night’s game against the Utah Jazz.

Davis suffered the injury when Chris Paul ran into him while dribbling up the court in the third quarter. This led some to cry foul about the play, and there’s no doubt it was a sneaky dirty maneuver.

The good news is that Davis avoided a serious injury and was only diagnosed with a contusion. Even if he misses Saturday’s game (and that seems smart), it could’ve been a lot worse and something the Pelicans couldn’t afford.

Davis had 17 points and six rebounds before leaving the game. He’s averaging 23 points and 10.5 rebounds on the year for the 4-12 Pelicans, who had their three-game winning streak snapped by Los Angeles. New Orleans sits at a disappointing 4-12 on the year thanks to a rash of injuries.
