Anthony Davis, Pelicans forward, was not able to feature when his team beat the Clippers 108-103 on Friday night due to a strain to the groin. Bookmaker software services can see that the fans are worried, but also believe that he’ll make it back to the court soon enough.
“I talked to him yesterday and I said, ‘If you don’t look close to yourself, I’m not going to let you play,'” said Monty Williams, Pelicans coach. “And he said, ‘No, Coach, I’m good,’ and I said, ‘Dude, look, it’s not going to happen.’ It’s not what we need. I would never put anybody out there that’s not close to themselves. It doesn’t help them and it doesn’t say a lot about our program.”
Williams also said that the player will make it back to the court when he looks more like his regular self, and many fans are confident that he will return to action very soon – hopefully sooner than expected.
“It’s all about his comfort level and what we see,” said the coach. “If it was just his comfort level, he would play, but we don’t see him with the same burst and explosion, certainly moving off of that leg where the injury happened. We don’t see the same A.D. That’s where you have to pull the plug on him so he can stop trying to play and rest and get the rehab that he needs so he can play in the next game if possible.”
J.J. Redick, shooting guard who’s very famous with bookmaker software services around the world, returned to the Clippers after he could not feature in a meeting due to spasms in his back. The player was able to score 12 points on 5 out of 13 shooting, as well as 4 assists, as the team’s winning streak of six games came to an end.
On Wednesday night, Davis suffered the injury when he collided with the Nuggets’ Kenneth Faried. The coach said that the Pelicans’ top rebounder, shot-blocker, and scorer, had setbacks due to the injury that he suffered during workouts before the meeting.
Williams and the Pelicans’ fans would like to see Davis concentrate on rehabbing, and hope that he returns to action for the meeting with the Hawks on Monday night. Many fans believe that the forward could make it, but are also aware that his health is the most important thing.
