METAIRIE, La. — One day after the NBA trading deadline, Anthony Davis is still a Pelican and is expected to play tonight.

Davis took part in a shoot-around Friday morning at the Pelicans' training facility on Airline Drive in Metairie. 

Despite the trade demand from New Orleans' franchise star last week and a tantalizing offer from the Los Angeles Lakers, the organization opted not to make a deal before the NBA's trade deadline yesterday.

Now that the deadline is passed, it means Davis cannot be traded until the off-season.

If he plays, tonight's game in the Smoothie King Center against the Minnesota Timberwolves will be Davis' first since a finger injury sidelined Davis on Jan. 18.

Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday told media at training on Friday that he is not concerned with the recent news around a potential Davis' trade.

"It wasn't odd then and it wasn't odd before. I know the type of player Anthony is, I know the type of person he is, so when he steps on the court he comes professional, he comes ready to play," Holiday said.

The Pelicans are 3-10 in games without Davis this season. 

Tip-off is at 8:30 p.m.
