Hornets’ Anthony Davis says he feels better, could play Friday

This is encouraging, but could ultimately be meaningless.

The Hornets No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis has missed the last two games for the Hornets with a concussion he got when teammate Austin Rivers inadvertently elbowed him in the head.

But Davis could be back Friday, reports Jimmy Smith of the Times-Picayune.

Coach Monty Williams took a more cautious approach, saying he didn’t know whether Davis or Rivers (who has a sprained finger) will play. Williams felt the sting of his fine and is walking the league line now.

For Davis, how he thinks he feels is irrelevant — according to the league concussion policy he has to pass a battery of tests and get approved by the league neurologist to return. Neither Davis nor the Hornets medical staff get to make the ultimate call.

But him saying he feels better is a good sign. And the Hornets could use him back so lets hope it is one.
