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.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Anthony Davis returned from a chest injury and scored 31 points, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat the reeling Utah Jazz, 119-111 on Tuesday night.
The Scoop:Davis was also seen shooting trick shots from the stands, so we'll take that as a good sign for his availability. We'll update Davis' status as soon as information becomes available, but Ryan Anderson, Tyreke Evans, and Jrue Holiday would all see a bump in their fantasy value if Brow can't go.
The Scoop:The Brow is back! Fantasy owners can feel free to plug Davis back into their lineups for Tuesday night, while Ryan Anderson, Tyreke Evans, and Jrue Holiday will miss out on the value bump they would've seen if Davis was unable to play on Tuesday.
The Scoop:Davis has not practiced while wearing the flak jacket, but stated that it will not be an issue. Go ahead and get the No. 1 player in fantasy basketball active for an extremely favorable matchup vs. the Jazz.
Anthony Davis scored 31 points in a win vs. the Jazz on Tuesday, adding nine boards, one assist, one steal and three blocks in 35 minutes.
The Scoop:After missing Sunday's game vs. the Warriors with a chest injury, Davis returned in style and was a force on both ends of the court. He shot 12-of-15 from the field and a perfect 7-of-7 from the free throw line to the delight of his owners. Davis has been the No. 1 player in fantasy basketball this season, and barring another injury he should be able to maintain that status moving forward.
