Davis could be back as Pelicans oppose Thunder

(TSX / STATS) -- NEW ORLEANS -- Despite losing their past two games in ugly fashion, the New Orleans Pelicans got some hopeful news Sunday that forward Anthony Davis probably will be able to start Monday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Davis was placed into the NBA's concussion protocol during a 146-114 loss at Denver on Friday night after Nuggets center Nikola Jokic inadvertently bumped him in the head in the third quarter. Davis left the court and did not return.

The Pelicans (8-8) announced Sunday that Dr. Misty Suri, the team's director of medical services, and Dr. Andrew Gottschalk, the team's concussion management specialist, said Davis had sustained a bruised orbital bone above his right eye but not a concussion.
