Anthony Davis Out for the Season With MCL Sprain

The New Orleans Hornets are taking precautionary measures, and shutting rookie big man Anthony Davis down for the season’s final three games. Davis sprained his left MCL on Wednesday in a loss to the Sacramento Kings, after colliding with Marcus Thorton. Per the Times-Picayune: “An MRI performed on New Orleans Hornets rookie Anthony Davis on Thursday revealed a sprained left medial collateral ligament, bone bruise, but no structural damage, the team said Thursday evening. He will miss the final three games of the season. No surgery will be required. [...] The No. 1 overall pick in this year’s NBA draft, Davis has weathered numerous injuries this season. He missed 11 games with a stress reaction in his left ankle, and two more games with a sprained left shoulder. Davis was averaging 13.5 points per game this season, and was the team’s leading rebounder at 8.2 per game. Davis also averaged 1.17 steals per game and 1.75 blocked shots.”

    outside of all the different injuries, i think he had a very solid rookie year. i predict a BIG step forward next year.

    I hope he doesn’t improve the Hornets, euhm Pelicans to much next year so they still have a good pick in next years draft.

    he’s ready but if another player falls down on your knee you’re gonna get injured no matter who you are.

    Even though there’s only 3 games left for them, I hate to hear this. This guy is a STAR; no question about it. He can score, defend, and alter the opponents’ plays in all sorts of ways. But the good news is that he’ll be ready for training camp. This guy’s ceiling is so high I wouldn’t be surprised if he is an ALL STAR next year.
