Hornets: Anthony Davis (Nov 2 8:41 ET ) Davis, the overall No. 1 draft pick of the New Orleans, has left Friday night's game against Utah and is being tested for a possible concussion and will not return.
The Scoop: Davis had eight points - all on dunks in the first half - six rebounds and two blocks. He was injured with 4:51 left in the first half. The Hornets released an official statement that he will be out for the rest of the game. The Hornets trailed 41-40 at halftime.
The Scoop:The sound you hear is fantasy owners breathing a sigh of relief as the fact that Davis is practicing the day after injuring his wrist is promising news. Davis has been a consensus top-3 pick in fantasy drafts this year and owners who like to draft high-upside players should have no issue with taking the 21-year-old with the No. 1 overall pick.
BALTIMORE (AP) -- Anthony Davis scored 14 points and Ryan Anderson had 11 as the New Orleans Pelicans beat the Washington Wizards 88-84 on Monday night in the next-to-last preseason game for both teams.
The Scoop:That's probably doubtful and let's say right off the bat that the beat writers are saying he doesn't appear to be in any pain. We'll update you as soon as we get a handle on this and owners should keep the needle still until we hear of a legitimate reason to be concerned.
The Scoop:All clear, as expected. Davis wanted to return but Monty Williams held him out, and as writers said at the time he never appeared to be in pain. Owners can continue drafting him anywhere between No. 1 and 3 with visions of untold fantasy greatness.
Anthony Davis hit 9-of-11 shots and 8-of-10 free throws for 26 points, eight rebounds, a steal and four blocks in Tuesday's win over the Rockets.
The Scoop:Dwight Howard and James Harden were out for the Rockets, but Davis is going to be dominant any time he's on the court this season. If you want to take him No. 1 overall with Kevin Durant down and out (foot), do it.
