NEW ORLEANS -- Anthony Davis will likely miss the Pelicans Friday game against the Washington Wizards with a sprained ankle.
According to the Pelicans, Davis is day-to-day with a sprained ankle and officially listed as "doubtful" for Friday's game at the Smoothie King Center.
Davis rolled his ankle in the third quarter of the win over Sacramento on March 7 and didn't play again. After the game, Davis said it was no big deal.
“I feel fine. But I’m going to have the team doctor take a look at it (Thursday) and go from there," said Davis in the post-game locker room. “Any time you twist an ankle it hurts, especially when you come down on somebody’s foot, because you really don’t have any protection. It was sore... I just wanted to make sure everything was fine... It’ll be alright.”
The NBA All-Star has been on a tear lately that has him being mentioned in the MVP discussion as the Pelicans 10-game streak ties the longest in franchise history.
