Pelicans Star Anthony Davis Has Sprained Ankle, Is Day-to-Day

Draymond Green Anthony Davis could win MVP over James Harden

According to the Pelicans, Davis is day-to-day with a sprained ankle and officially listed as "doubtful" for Friday's game at the Smoothie King Center. So much so, that ESPN's Max Kellerman said on First Take that Davis was literally going to be the greatest National Basketball Association player in the world beginning next season. Davis briefly left Tuesday's game at the Los Angeles Clippers with a rib contusion, which also returned negative X-rays, but returned shortly thereafter. I think there was kind of a consensus around the world that once DeMarcus went out, that they'd struggle. Davis has scored 41 or more five times during that stretch and as many as 53 points in a victory over Phoenix. Despite that, New Orleans has won 11 of their last 16 games, including those 10 straight, and now sit fourth in the Western Conference with a 38-26 record.

Anthony Davis will likely miss the Pelicans Friday game against the Washington Wizards with a sprained ankle. But overall, Harden has more claim to the award than Davis. He left the game immediately favouring his left ankle and did not return.

Giants acquire Alec Ogletree from Rams
Besides dealing away Ogletree and Quinn, they were also involved in a third trade that brought Marcus Peters to Los Angeles. By obtaining Ogletree, the Giants are plugging a major hole once defense that they've had for years at middle linebacker.

New Orleans has won 10 consecutive games and its performance has really made an impression on Warriors forward Draymond Green. "(The Pelicans) are a hot team right now.

"You knew it wouldn't be long before he actually does pull through and win one, and then I know if you're him, you're sitting there like, 'Man, now here come AD putting up different historical stat lines every night.' But James has had a great year". I realize that Davis cares about winning a playoff series more than an MVP award, but, I believe an MVP away validates what Pelicans fans already know. The good news is I think is that it's not as serious as maybe it looked. Davis remained in the game briefly before being taken to the Pelicans locker room with 3:11 left in the third.
