Pelicans PF Anthony Davis dealing with mild groin strain
by R.J. White |
(1/29/2015) Pelicans power forward Anthony Davis is dealing with what coach Monty Williams calls a mild groin strain and could potentially play Friday against the Clippers, the Associated Press reports.

"He's walking around, doing some stuff — nothing to break a sweat — but he's walking around normally, so we'll see how he feels" on Friday, Williams said. "If he feels up to it, we're going to play him his normal minutes."

Davis was injured late in the third quarter of Wednesday's loss to the Nuggets but returned to the game in the middle of the fourth quarter before eventually being removed for good. He underwent an MRI Thursday, which revealed a "grade 1" adductor strain, an injury caused by a muscle being overstretched.

Williams indicated that he'll want to see Davis' normal "burst" during pregame warmups Friday before putting him into the starting lineup.

"There's no need of putting him on the floor if he drags his leg," Williams said. "I don't think that helps him at all and certainly prolongs the healing process."

The Pelicans are set to play six of their next seven games at home. Davis has been listed as questionable for Friday's action.
