Hornets' Rookie Anthony Davis Leaves Game With Ankle Injury

The New Orleans Hornets had high hopes for Anthony Davis.  The number one overall pick was supposed to help build this team into a contender - if not this year, in the very near future.  And Davis has been solid.  But he has not been able to show off his true skills because of a number of injuries.  Yesterday, Davis had to leave the Hornets' game against the Sacramento Kings with an ankle injury.

According to early reports by the Associated Press, Davis suffered what appears to be an ankle sprain.  He left the game after just 15 minutes of play.  The Hornets were able to hold on without him, and they beat the Kings 114-105.

Davis injured his ankle in the second quarter and did not return for the second half.  The injury was to the same ankle that kept him off the court for 11 games earlier in the season.  Despite leaving early with the injury, Davis still managed to score 11 points and 11 boards.

Davis looks like he will be everything the Hornets hoped he would be and more.  If he can stay healthy, that is.  Davis, as mentioned previously has already missed time due to an ankle injury earlier in the season.  He also missed time due to a concussion.

So far this season, Davis is averaging 13.2 points per game and 8.0 rebounds per game.  He was the Hornets number one overall pick after helping the Kentucky Wildcats to a National Championship last year.
