Alvin Gentry told media members during his pregame session that Davis is not expected to play, due to the left shoulder injury that caused him to exit Tuesday’s loss to Denver in the first quarter. In addition to Davis being sidelined, the Pelicans (1-10) will be without Omer Asik, who is missing a second straight game due to a stomach illness.
Jrue Holiday started his third consecutive game Tuesday night, but won’t play Wednesday night’s game at Oklahoma City. —
The Pelicans’ starting point guard — who is being used cautiously while he recovers from a stress reaction in his right leg that caused him to miss 90 games over the previous two years — is still on a 25 –minute restriction and can’t play games on consecutive days.
Davis, Asik and Holiday would join New Orleans’ already-lengthy injury list:
If you’re keeping track, here are the Pelicans who should be available tonight:
- Eric Gordon
- Ryan Anderson
- Alexis Ajinca
- Dante Cunningham
- Luke Babbitt
- Alonzo Gee
- Ish Smith
- Toney Douglas
- Jimmer Fredette
Yeesh. That’s a roster only Sam Hinkie could love.
