Anthony Davis has had a couple concussions during his NBA career, one of the several ailments that have kept him off the court for stretches the past few seasons.
Now Davis has suffered his third concussion since being in the league. Davis left the Pelicans’ game against the Nuggets in the third quarter after getting a concussion when trying to guard Nikola Jokic. There is no timetable for his return, he will enter the league’s concussion protocol and need to be cleared by a league neurologist before he can return to the court. After the game New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry didn’t have any details.
The play itself looked fairly innocent — there was no intent by Jokic.
Davis spent a couple of minutes on the ground after the play, his hands over his face, before going to the locker room.
Davis is averaging 25.6 points, 11.4 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game this season.
