BBNBA Roundup: Anthony Davis sprains his ankle in China


Some unfortunate news from the NBA: Anthony Davis sprained his ankle during this morning’s Pelicans/Exhibition game in China. Davis slipped during a post move and turned his right ankle:

After trying briefly to re-enter the game, Davis was taken to the locker room and did not return. He finished with 2 points (1-5) in 7 minutes as the Pelicans fell to the Rockets 116-104. Davis has been plagued with injuries throughout his career, so hopefully this one isn’t too serious.

Meanwhile, former Cat turned Gonzaga Bulldog Kyle Wiltjer chipped in 15 points and 5 rebounds for the Rockets off 6-13 from the field, including 3-7 from behind the three-point line:

Three other Cats played yesterday. Here’s a roundup of their performances…

  • Andrew Harrison, Memphis Grizzlies: 3 points (1-2), 1 rebound, 3 assists, 12 minutes
  • Enes Kanter, Oklahoma City Thunder: 11 points (5-9), 13 rebounds, 2 blocks, 1 assist, 22 minutes
  • Julius Randle, Los Angeles Lakers: 13 points (4-6), 13 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, 1 block, 35 minutes

Some of Randle’s highlights, starting with a between the legs pass to Nick Young:

And this huge slam:

And taking the ball the length of the court for an and-one:

Today’s games:

  • 7:30 PM: Bucks vs. Pacers (Alex Poythress)
  • 8:00 PM: Nuggets (Jamal Murray) vs. Timberwolves (Karl Towns)
  • 9:00 PM: Suns (Eric Bledsoe, Brandon Knight, Archie Goodwin, Devin Booker, Tyler Ulis) vs. Jazz (Trey Lyles)

UPDATE: Per Marc J. Spears, Davis has a grade two right ankle sprain and will miss 10-15 days.

    So is Kanter still going by Kanter after all?

    Please post how many points Wiltjer gave up since he cannot guard a fence post

      lets just say that he has outscored the man guarding him (usually twice over) since he was a freshman in college. last i heard, the person who scores the most points WINS, regardless of how the other plays defense. hope that helps. sounds to me like the athletic guy guarding him (giving up 15 pts) is the one that cant guard a fence post!

    Not worried about it. He had a boot but I think the fact that his estimated time out is the EXACT length of pre-season left tells me it’s precautionary.
