Utah Jazz vs New Orleans Pelicans: Lineups, preview & prediction 3/11/18

Anthony Davis likely to return from ankle injury vs. Utah

Davis suffered the injury during New Orleans' 114-101 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday.

That said, it can be expected the Anthony Davis will be relied upon even more moving forward, as there is no doubt that he is the team's best player, and will continue to be their focal point whether on offense or defense.

The New Orleans Pelicans saw their franchise record-tying win streak end at 10 Friday night against the Washington Wizards, but they can start a new streak on Sunday against the Utah Jazz.

The Pelicans return to action Tuesday at 7 p.m.as they welcome in the Charlotte Hornets.

If Davis gets the green light, he won't be on any minutes restriction.




"I think so", Gentry said.

Davis is also celebrating his 25th birthday on Sunday. Will do some more stuff [today] and see how it is.

While the 25-year-old has been a key factor for New Orleans ever since it selected him with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 National Basketball Association draft, his importance has grown since All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins was lost for the season in January with a torn Achilles.

Since Cousins went down on January 26, Davis has taken his game to astronomical levels in leading the Pelicans' charge for the playoffs.

The Brow did it with a huge stat line as he finished with 25 points, 11 rebounds, 10 blocks, and added three assists, and three steals across his name.
