The Grim Reaper of injuries have collected a lot of bodies early in the season
In a game earlier today against the Blazers, one half of the big brother duo of the New Orleans Pelicans got injured on his left knee.
Starting with Gordon Hayward, Derrick Rose, Jeremy Lin and now Anthony Davis, the NBA may already have an average of 2 to 3 players on their injury list and Anthony Davis just added to that list giving the New Orleans Pelicans a total of six players including Omer Asik and Rajon Rondo.
Anthony Davis has no structural damage in his left knee according to Shams Charania of The Vertical, but does have some swelling.
A lot has been waiting to see how the combination of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins would work but injuries are not forgiving as it continues to plague players early in the NBA season. Anthony Davis' injury does not look serious compared to the others but he currently has no timetable on the return yet as they are still waiting for the MRI.
Anthony Davis scored 2 points and played 5 minutes against the Blazers. The Pelicans also lost with the score of 103 -93.
