NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Hornets rookie Anthony Davis has been scratched for a sixth straight game against Utah, which has ruled out Mo Williams for a third consecutive game on Wednesday night.
Hornets coach Monty Williams says he does not expect Davis to return from his left ankle injury at least until next week. The Hornets have one more game this week when Oklahoma City visits on Saturday night.
New Orleans plays again on Monday at home against Milwaukee. Davis is averaging 16 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.2 blocks.
Utah coach Tyrone Corbin says Williams will not play because of his sprained right foot. Corbin says he thinks Williams, who averages 13.8 points, is "really close" to returning, perhaps as early as Friday night at Oklahoma City.
