I doubt Davis returns tonight, but the fact that it’s even deemed possible is encouraging.
Davis led New Orleans to nine-straight wins and a 20-point lead over the Kings tonight.

Hopefully, Davis is OK. Him leaving the game could be as much about precaution – especially considering the score and opponent – as serious concern about his injury.
The Pelicans are fourth in the West, but they have just a three-game buffer for reaching the playoffs in the eight-teams-for-six-spots race. Davis has bought New Orleans a little margin for error – but not much.
