Anthony Davis to miss another week
New Orleans Hornets rookie forward Anthony Davis will miss another week because of an ankle injury, coach Monty Williams told reporters on Sunday.
The New Orleans Times-Picayune quotes Williams as saying: “If I have to guess, I think he’s a week away from us thinking about him ramping up his conditioning; let alone playing,” Williams said. “So I just think it’s still far off.”
The paper also reported that Davis, who has been out since Nov. 17, dressed for Sunday’s practice but didn’t participate in any contact work.
Davis was the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft by the Hornets out of Kentucky. He was the most outstanding player in Kentucky’s 67-59 win against Kansas in the 2012 NCAA Championship Game.
