Pelicans’ Anthony Davis leaves game with sprained shoulder (VIDEO)

Feb 26, 2014, 11:15 PM EDT

It doesn’t look that severe or harsh as it happens, but New Orleans’ face-of-the-franchise young big man Anthony Davis sprained his left shoulder with 4:13 left in the first half of the Pelicans loss Wednesday night to Dallas.

He did not return for the second half.  The team described it as a sprain. He was going for a rebound against Samuel Dalembert when it happened and while the video doesn’t show anything dramatic it clearly was enough to injure Davis.

How severely? Nobody is sure yet.

Hopefully it is nothing serious but you can bet the Pelicans will be very cautious here — Anthony is the future, a No. 1 level star that is a franchise cornerstone for years to come and there is nothing left to play for this season.

    PELICANS realizing they are closer to tank then playoffs if this injury even somewhat serious they will hold him out and try to make a run for the top5 pick bc if its 6 or higher its the sixers, we shall see. IM SIXERS FAN so if we get top 3 pick with our record then a 6-10 from pelicans that’s a beautifull thing.

      Imagine drafting Parker and Randle or any other top 5 guy.

      That would be unreal.

    Young Fella gotta get in the gym and get his weight up. Super talented with a unlimited potential…just need the right training staff.

      I don’t think his injuries have had anything to do with his weight. He has increased his strength from last year to this year. More freaky injuries. Hopefully he can stay healthy, becuase you’re right- he’s a beast.
