                      === Davis to return for Hornets ===
 
 New  Orleans, LA (Sports Network) - New Orleans Hornets rookie forward Anthony
 Davis  is slated  to play  in Monday's  game against  the Orlando  Magic after
 missing the team's previous two contests with a sprained left shoulder.
 
 Davis sustained the injury during the second half of a 101-97 home loss to the
 Brooklyn  Nets on Feb.  26, but the 2012 No. 1 overall draft pick participated
 in  Monday's  shootaround and  has been  cleared for  action without any known
 restrictions.
 
 "He's  playing,"  Hornets head  coach  Monty  Williams confirmed.  "No  minute
 restriction;  not that I?ve heard. That could change this evening, but nothing
 that I've heard so far."
 
 Davis, who sat out 11 games due to a stress reaction in his left ankle earlier
 this  season,  has averaged 12.5  points and  7.4 rebounds over 45 appearances
 thus far in his debut campaign.
