  • Draymond Green weighs in on James Harden's MVP candidacy

Davis, who has been on a tear during the Pelicans' winning streak, rolled his left ankle in the third quarter of a 114-101 road victory over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night.

On Friday, the Pelicans will host the fourth-placed team from the east, the Washington Wizards. 88 if burden the next nine or even at home which is a good thing so I could I deathly understand though if they do opt to rest him because you got to all whole huge slate of games this month to contend with and it is even next week.

Davis landed badly on his ankle after stepping on Kings center Kosta Koufos. Meanwhile, doing his scoring effectively, adding five 40 point games on 53 percent shooting from the field. Davis left NOLA's previous contest with a rib injury.

The 2017 Defensive Player of the Year talked up Davis after the Pelicans' latest win, saying he thinks Davis could edge out Houston Rockets superstar James Harden, runner-up for MVP in two of the last three seasons, for the award.




Davis was already one of the top players in the game, but he's reached a new level with Cousins out and his teammates have followed his lead. To that end, they could be getting some unexpected help on Friday.

"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. Anthony Davis is averaging 28.1 points and 11.1 rebounds while Jrue Holiday is averaging 19.4 points and 5.8 assists.

Mirotic scored a team-high 26 points against Sacramento, and Diallo has shown an ability to run the court, rebound and block shots.

The Wizards head to New Orleans to take on the red-hot Pelicans. Davis' status will be re-evaluated on a day-to-day basis. Holiday averages 5.8 assists for the season, but in his past ten games has averaged 8.5 assists (including a huge 17 dimes two games ago against the Clippers) to go with 24.9 points.
