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.
