The Pelicans announced Sunday that Davis would miss the game but did not disclose a specific injury diagnosis or a timeline of when the four-time All-Star will return.
Davis was set to undergo extensive tests Sunday in New Orleans, league sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The New Orleans Advocate reported that the Pelicans would release the results of those tests Monday.
Davis suffered the injury during Friday’s game against the Utah Jazz as he battled for a rebound. The Pelicans initially announced that Davis had suffered a groin injury.
Davis, 24, has battled injuries throughout his five-plus seasons with the Pelicans. He is the NBA’s eighth-leading scorer and eighth-leading rebounder this season, averaging 25.2 points and 11.0 rebounds in 21 games.
