New Orleans Pelicans' Anthony Davis hurts wrist against Toronto Raptors
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans Anthony Davis has a left wrist injury that has sidelined him for the second half of Wednesday night’s game against the Toronto Raptors.
After the 94-87 loss to Toronto, the Pelicans announced that Davis hurt his left wrist, an injury that appeared to occur when he caught his wrist on the front rim and then crashed to the court during the Pelicans’ final possession of the first half.
Davis was fouled by Normal Powell as leaped in an effort to corral an alley-oop pass. Davis, who shoots right-handed, made two free throws after the foul, but never emerged from the locker room after halftime in a game that was close most of the way.
The Pelicans said X-rays did not reveal any broken bones, but that Davis had a contusion and would be re-evaluated daily.
He had scored seven points and grabbed four rebounds in 17 minutes before being ruled out for the remainder of the game.
Davis, an All-Star for his fourth consecutive season, has been averaging 28.1 points and 11.8 rebounds this season.
