Anthony Davis injury update: Pelicans star to see hand specialist, could miss 2-4 weeks, report says

‘I hope it doesn’t go unnoticed’ – Kerr after Wariors make 5th straight NBA Finals

The Pelicans could be without Anthony Davis for longer than they initially thought.

New Orleans announced last weekend that its star sprained his index finger in a 128-112 loss to the Trail Blazers. However, Davis’ agent told The Athletic the injury may be more serious and could cause him to miss two-to-four weeks.

Davis is set to see a hand specialist this week.

Davis has been one of the best players in the NBA this season as he’s averaging career-highs in points (29.3), rebounds (13.3) and assists (4.4). But the Pelicans are 22-25 and outside of the playoff picture in the Western Conference.

A lengthy absence for Davis could mean the end for New Orleans’ postseason hopes. The Pelicans will face the Pistons on Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET.
