ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Magic guard Victor Oladipo, the team’s second-leading scorer, left Wednesday’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers with a concussion.

Team officials said Oladipo was taken to the locker room for examination during the first quarter and would not return to the game.

It was unclear when Oladipo was hurt. Oladipo, who was averaging 16.1 points and 7.5 rebounds, played the first 6:41 of the game, before leaving during a timeout.

He had three points and two rebounds.

ATLANTA (AP) — New Orleans star Anthony Davis is sitting out Wednesday night’s game against the Atlanta Hawks because of a bruised right hip.

Davis was injured the previous night in the Pelicans’ first win of the season, a 120-105 victory over Dallas. He sat out the second half and wasn’t cleared to face the Hawks. Omer Asik gets the start at center.

Davis is averaging 24 points, 9.0 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game. He was injured in the second quarter when he took a knee to the hip. X-rays were negative and he’s listed as day to day.

The Pelicans will also be without guard Jrue Holiday, who hasn’t been cleared to play back-to-back games while recovering from a lower leg injury.

Holiday won’t get to go against his brother Justin, a backup for the Hawks.

Kristaps Porzingis’ game-winning 3-pointer waved off (video)


Nikola Vucevic‘s game-winner against the Lakers and Kristaps Porzingis‘ apparent game-winner against the Hornets a few minutes later were both thrilling shots, but only one made me literally scream.

It wasn’t the one that counted.

Officials reviewed Porzingis’ shot and correctly ruled the Knicks rookie didn’t get it off, but man, was it close:
