Pelicans star Anthony Davis (elbow) to play vs. Warriors

From NBA Twitter and media reports

All-Star Anthony Davis will return tonight for the New Orleans Pelicans after missing the last two games because of an elbow injury.

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said at today’s shootaround that he wasn’t sure about Davis’ status for tonight, but that he felt good about Davis suiting up against the Golden State Warriors (10:30 ET, NBA League Pass).

Davis said he suffered his right elbow sprain last Friday against Brooklyn after dunking on Nets center Jarrett Allen.

“It feels better,” Davis said of his injury that caused him to miss games against the Utah Jazz and Denver Nuggets.

This season, Davis is averaging 27.3 points, 13.3 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game.
