Utah Jazz may catch unexpected break after Anthony Davis injury

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

Anthony Davis did suffer a nasty ankle injury which sidelined New Orleans' star player, but the Pelicans still had a commanding lead of 85-67 going into the final period.

After Friday's contest, the Pelicans host the Jazz Sunday afternoon and Hornets Tuesday night. He has scored more than 40 points five times during the streak. X-rays on Davis' left ankle returned negative.

Markieff Morris hit a critical 3-pointer in overtime to key the victory, but he knows upcoming road games against New Orleans on Friday and Miami on Saturday are important as the Wizards try to position themselves for the playoffs.

Despite Davis' recent ailments, he's been phenomenal during the Pelicans' winning streak and he's forced his way into the MVP discussion with the historic performances he's been putting up on nearly a nightly basis. As of now, it seems as if this year's honor is still Harden's to lose - he leads the National Basketball Association in player efficiency rating at 30.21, while Davis is second at 28.90 and LeBron James is third at 28.19 - but Green says Davis is making his case.

The Rockets have been the talk of the National Basketball Association over the last month as they have won 17 games in a row, but the Pelicans have played nearly as well even though their winning streak isn't as long. And both of those years, he's lost to like historic seasons. Otto Porter Jr. (22.0 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.4 steals) has been stellar for the Wizards while Jrue Holiday (26.0 points and 8.0 assists) has made great contributions to the Pelicans.

Despite 37 points and nine rebounds from Davis, New Orleans lost 116-106 at Washington on December 19.

Davis, who left the game for good with 3:11 left in the third quarter, had his lowest point total during the win streak. For most of the game, they were manhandled by New Orleans on both ends of the court.

If Davis doesn't play, the Wizards' chances in this game will be exponentially higher, but even if he doesn't the Pelicans will still get over the line. "We just got to continue to strive to get better and continue to work".
