Share

Davis is averaging 48.9 FanDuel points a game this season.

Anthony Davis' ejection from the Pelicans' loss against the Timberwolves on Thursday (AEDT) will cost the forward more than just the game. The big man finished the contest with 19 points (9-14 FG, 1-4 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, two steals, and a block across 31 minutes. He joined Alexis Ajinca, Solomon Hill and Frank Jackson as Pelicans players on the team's updated injury report who can't play tonight.

New Orleans will have to rely on center DeMarcus Cousins to provide the bulk of the scoring, as the Pelicans have lost three games in a row, going back to the.500 mark at 11-11 for the season.

Davis missed the following game against Sacramento on October 26 and Cousins carried the squad to a 114-106 victory, posting 41 points and 23 rebounds against his former team.
