Because the basketball injury gods are not done with New Orleans…
With just less than two minutes remaining in the first half of the Rockets visiting the Pelicans, Houston’s Josh Smith missed a jumper (shocking, I know) and as Tyreke Evans and Anthony Davis both went for the rebound, Evans elbows Davis in the head.
Davis went to the ground, stayed there for a while, went back to the locker room, where he was diagnosed with a concussion.
Davis now has to clear the NBA’s concussion protocol before he can return to the Pelican’s rotation. New Orleans is off until Thursday when they host Sacramento.
