Davis did not return to the game in the second half…
New Orleans Pelicans power forward Anthony Davis completed an alley-oop slam in the second quarter vs the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night, but hurt his shoulder in the process.
A night after his heroics against the Oklahoma City Thunder during which he nailed a buzzer-beating three-pointer to give his team the win, Davis was out to pick up from where he left off on Saturday.
However, his night was ended prematurely after he completed the play below but fell down hard to the floor immediately after and it left him in considerable pain on the sidelines.
Although he remained in the game for a short stretch after, he did not return in the second half which inevitably led to anxious Pelicans fans hoping that he had not suffered a serious injury.
Jennifer Hale, sideline reporter for FOX, took to Twitter to reveal that Davis had merely suffered a shoulder contusion and that X-rays came back negative which suggested that there was no bone issues or muscle tears.
Given their participation in the race for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, New Orleans will be hoping to get their star man back before their next outing.
