The Pelicans are hopeful that Anthony Davis can return to the lineup on Sunday, and Alvin Gentry said, “I’m assuming that he will (return).”
The Pelicans need him back in a major way. They got waxed by Washington on Friday with Davis out, and the vibes around his pregame work do indicate that Davis’ ankle sprain isn’t a big deal. He was a game-time decision and it seemed like the team could’ve pushed him if they absolutely had to, but they decided to play it smart and give him a few extra days of rest. When he does return Nikola Mirotic will head back to the bench and Cheick Diallo will lose his playing time.
