NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Anthony Davis, the overall No. 1 draft pick of the New Orleans, has left Friday night’s game against Utah and is being tested for a possible concussion and will not return.
Davis had eight points — all on dunks in the first half — six rebounds and two blocks. He was injured with 4:51 left in the first half. The Hornets released an official statement that he will be out for the rest of the game. The Hornets trailed 41-40 at halftime.
Davis, who led Kentucky to the NCAA championship last season, scored 21 points in his regular-season debut on Wednesday in the Hornets’ 99-95 loss to San Antonio. He hit 6 of 12 shots, made all nine of his free throw attempts and grabbed seven rebounds.
