He actually suffered a sprained ankle in Wednesday's 114-101 win on the road against the Sacramento Kings.
Davis, who sprained his ankle in a win over the Kings on Wednesday, is reportedly doubtful to play against the Washington Wizards on Friday.
Jrue Holiday added 23, Davis scored 17, E'Twaun Moore had 15 and Ian Clark 11 as the Pelicans finished sweeping a four-game road trip to extend the second-longest current win streak in the National Basketball Association. While Holiday has been excellent and Mirotic has been a welcome addition, without Davis the Pelicans would have dropped out of the playoff race after DeMarcus Cousins' injury. The Heat, who the Wizards will play again tomorrow night, are 2.5 games behind the Wizards as they sit in the seventh seed. Every game is vital, and they were relieved to get over the line in overtime against the Heat on Tuesday.
Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green said Thursday that he thinks New Orleans Pelicans big man Anthony Davis has been even more remarkable lately and could make a late-season push for the award.
With Davis getting a lengthy rest on the bench for most of the second quarter, New Orleans extended its advantage to 49-29 on another deep shot from Clark. He left the game immediately favouring his left ankle and did not return. The season of Steph's year, Steph was just off the chart. But, AD is averaging 28.1 points, 11.1 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game on the season, which clearly stacks up against Harden's numbers considering the fact that he's a frontcourt player. Holiday averages 5.8 assists for the season, but in his past ten games has averaged 8.5 assists (including a huge 17 dimes two games ago against the Clippers) to go with 24.9 points.
Buddy Hield scored 20 points, Zach Randolph had 19, Frank Mason III scored 16 and Justin Jackson and Skal Labissiere had 14 each to lead Sacramento, which split the season series against New Orleans as the road team won all four games. "We just got to continue to strive to get better and continue to work".
