New Orleans Hornets rookie F/C Anthony Davis sustained a sprained Medial Collateral Ligament and bone bruise in his left knee during last night’s contest against the Sacramento Kings. Further evaluations and an MRI performed today by team physicians revealed no additional structural damage. As a result, Davis will miss the remainder of the season.
The injury occurred with 5:45 remaining in the fourth quarter of last night’s game at Sleep Train Arena when Davis collided with Kings G Marcus Thornton. Davis (6-10, 220) is averaging 13.5 points 8.2 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks in 28.8 minutes per game this season.
