Hornets’ Anthony Davis to be out at least another week

Anthony Davis has already missed the Hornets’ last seven games and he’s going to be out a while longer, coach Monty Williams told the Times Picayune.

“If I have to guess, I think he’s a week away from us thinking about him ramping up his conditioning; let alone playing,” Williams said. “So I just think it’s still far off.”

New Orleans is 1-6 in the games Davis has missed. In the past five games their offensive numbers remain close to when Davis was playing — 100 points per 100 possessions, down from 101.4.

But as you would expect, it’s the defense that has taken the hit — with Davis in the lineup they allowed 103.1 points per 100 possessions, that has jumped way up to 110.5 in the past five games. They aren’t defending, they aren’t winning.

And they are going to have to keep going with this roster for a little while longer.

    Larry Sanders has been a machine these last few games(triple double Friday night and I believe a 15 and 15 game against the Celtics Saturday night). We’ll give you him and Monta Ellis and whoever else you would like except for Brandon Jennings.

    Yeah, I didn’t think so either.

    Almost safe to watch a Hornets game again!

    Rookie of the Year? Damian Lillard.

      You’re handing that award out already? Davis is so much better, he can STILL come back and snatch that award from Lillard’s grasp.
