Last night, Davis collided with Miami's Hassan Whiteside, and immediately A.D. began holding his right shoulder, which he originally injured in a fall against Chicago on Feb. 7 (pictured above). That injury ultimately kept him out of the All-Star game, and could greatly reduce the Pelicans chances of earning the last playoff spot in the Western Conference (they are now two games behind Oklahoma City, who just acquired former Utah center Enes Kanter in trade). The ESPN report seemed to contradict an earlier story by Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski that listed Davis as "day-to-day" after re-injuring his shoulder. That report said tests showed no structural damage to the shoulder. Davis, who is averaging 24 points and 10 rebounds per game, is a legitimate MVP candidate, analysts say. But the Pelicans will have to make a decision whether Davis can play through the pain, or whether they need to let him rest, which could result in losing more ground to the Thunder. More updates as we hear them. Get better A.D.!!!!
