Anthony Davis Cleared to Play

After spending 11 games on the Chillin’ List, recovering from a stress reaction in his left ankle, rookie Anthony Davis will be in the lineup tonight for the New Orleans Hornets as they take on the Washington Wizards. Per the Times-Picayune: “Hornets Coach Monty Williams said after the team’s shootaround that Davis will come off the bench behind starter Ryan Anderson at power forward. Since Davis has been out, the Hornets have lost nine of 11 games. ‘I’m going to bring him off the bench to ease him into playing again,’ Williams said. ‘He’s excited about playing. Ryan is playing so well, I just think it’s the right thing to do. It’s good to have him back in the fold again.’ At 5-14, New Orleans has the worst record in the Western Conference and they go into Tuesday night’s game on a three-game losing streak. Playing in just six games, Davis has averaged 16 points and 8.3 rebounds. Davis was cleared for contact work and practiced without limitations for the first time on Monday at the New Orleans Arena. ‘I just want to play,’ Davis said. ‘Sitting out 11 games was tough but i am happy to be back. It feels good and I’ll test it tonight. I just feel ready to go.’”

    Haha fair enough. They probably could use some updating considering they’re quite old and at this point James Harden as sixth man is a lol
