New Orleans, LA (SportsNetwork.com) - The New Orleans Pelicans received a bit of good news Sunday when it was revealed star forward Anthony Davis only has a sprained right shoulder and is day-to-day going forward.
The 21-year-old phenom suffered the injury during a scary fall in Saturday's game against the Bulls.
After completing an alley-oop dunk, Davis' hands slipped off the rim, and he landed hard on his right shoulder. He remained in the game for another minute before being taken out for further examination and did not return.
The fear of a more severe injury was lessened when X-rays on his shoulder came back negative.
Davis was named to his second All-Star team this season and has carried the Pelicans to a 27-24 record. He is averaging 24.5 points, 10.3 rebounds nearly three blocks and 1.5 steals per game.
He is questionable for Monday's game against the Jazz.
