Anthony Davis injured, suffers fracture in handPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the New Orleans Times-Picayune on Hornets star Anthony Davis, who suffered an injury Sunday. Davis is second on the team in scoring, and first (in a really big way) in both rebounding and shot-blocking:
New Orleans Pelicans second-year power forward Anthony Davis was having a splendid start to his 2013-2014 season. But the momentum he opened the season with was slowed during the first quarter of the Pelicans’ 103-99 victory against the New York Knicks on Sunday night.
Davis suffered a non-displaced fracture in his left, non-shooting, hand in the first quarter of the Pelicans game against the New York Knicks and wasn’t able to return. The team didn’t provide a timetable for his return.
Davis said he injured his hand when he slammed it on the rim during an alley-oop attempt.
“I am hoping it is a short-term thing, so I can get back on the floor,” Davis said. “I felt pain. I didn’t think it was going to keep me out. I am happy that my team battled for the whole 48 (minutes) and got that W.”
