Davis day-to-day, X-rays negative after leaving with back injury

BY Brett Pollakoff • January 9, 2016

Anthony Davis left in the first quarter of the Pelicans' loss to the Pacers on Friday, and did not return after diving into the stands to try to save a loose ball.

It looked like a rough fall at the time, but reporters were told afterward that X-rays were negative, and that Davis would be listed as day-to-day.

"I don't know anything yet,'' Gentry said afterward, via NOLA.com. ''He was telling me that he had back pains when he left the court. So I'm sure we'll find out later on."

Somewhat ironically, Gentry has blasted his team's lack of effort more than once this season. But he probably doesn't want to see his franchise player putting himself at risk like this.
