Anthony Davis Done for the Season Because of Injuries
New Orleans Pelicans Center Anthony Davis will miss the rest of the season due to persistent injuries. New Orleans Pelicans announced on Sunday that Davis will need to deal with his nagging knee and shoulder injuries.
Last Friday, Davis banged knees with Portland guard C.J. McCollum that forced him to the bench and he missed practice on Saturday. Pelican's coach Alvin Gentry warned after that practice that his All-Star could be sitting out his last 14 games, but a lot of people dismissed that idea since Davis may want to pad his stats to finish the season that would possibly result in a significant contract bonus boost for Davis.
Jennifer Hale of Fox Sports in a report said that Davis will undergo surgery on his knee and also his shoulder, to repair a torn labrum.
While Davis has not been as dominant in 2015-16 as he was last year, he's still one of the NBA's best players and was averaging 24.3 points and a career-high 10.3 rebounds per game.
