Anthony Davis 'day-to-day' with ankle sprain, doubtful for Friday

New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis sitting out due to an ankle sprain played cheerleader Friday night in a 116-97 loss to the Washington Wizards in Smoothie King Center

The Pelicans are on a tear. The Rockets' last loss came against the Pelicans, 115-113, on January 26 in New Orleans.

For most Sacramento Kings fans, this game had to be highlighted on their calendars last fall.

On Friday, the Pelicans will host the fourth-placed team from the east, the Washington Wizards. "What I will say is, James has been second two times". Further, Wojnarowski reported that Davis' injury doesn't figure to keep him out for an extended period of time, as the star big man is only listed as day-to-day moving forward.

The Pelicans announced that X-rays taken were negative. Not bad company to keep.

"Both of those years, he lost to historic seasons - Steph was just off the charts, and then Russ had 50 triple-doubles last year", Draymond told reporters.

Fox averages 11.2 points and a team-high 4.2 assists. John Wall remains out as he recovers from knee surgery. They will go head-to-head on Friday, and will have a major influence on the outcome of the game.

Davis is averaging 28.3 points, 11.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 2.2 blocks this season. When the sides met earlier in the season, he put up 37 points to go with nine rebounds in 37 minutes of action.

In games where they hold opponents under 100 points, New Orleans is 8-1 and Washington is 17-3.

This game is tipped to be close. Back New Orleans to cover this line.

Without Davis and center DeMarcus Cousins, the Pelicans will have lean heavily on recently acquired center Emeka Okafor and on forwards Nikola Mirotic and Cheick Diallo, who have been major contributors during the streak.

Davis has been the primary reason for New Orleans' recent success, but he hasn't been doing it alone.

The second quarter did not get any better for the Kings as the Pelicans continued to stomp on the accelerator.

Despite the fact that LeBron James has had one of the best statistical seasons of his National Basketball Association career and reigning MVP Russell Westbrook is almost averaging a season-long triple-double again, National Basketball Association voters might be inclined to take a look at a player who has had an historic surge recently.
