Former Kentucky star Anthony Davis’ ridiculous stat-stuffing MVP campaign will unfortunately have to be put on hold for a week or two.

Davis, who is currently averaging a career-high in points (29.3), rebounds (13.3), assists (4.4) and steals (1.7) per game, will reportedly miss the next one-to-two weeks following a left index finger sprain suffered in the Pelicans’ loss last night to the Portland Trail Blazers.

The injury came when Davis took a swipe at the ball and unfortunately caught Portland’s Zach Collins’ elbow late in the fourth quarter.

Here was the play:

Davis finished the day with 27 points and seven rebounds, playing with the injury through the final buzzer:

Missing up to two weeks of basketball won’t be fun for the former Kentucky star, but it’s certainly good news the injury wasn’t as severe as it could have been.

Hurry back to the floor, AD.

    Guy needs to be on a NC contender. The losing birds in NO aren’t a good place for a guy of his caliber.

    I love Davis but he is always getting hurt.

    During his entire NBA career don’t think he hasn’t gone a entire month without being hurt. Personally feel bad for whoever pays him a lot of money because he’s bound for a major injury as he gets older
