An MRI taken of Davis' left ankle Thursday confirmed the extent of the injury as a sprain. Wincing in pain, Davis reached for his left ankle before returning to his feet. With the likes of E'Twaun Moore, Holiday, Darius Miller and the newly acquired Mirotic, they're putting shooters around Davis and simply letting perhaps the most freakishly gifted player on earth go to work. "We need to be available to make those shots, which is why it's important to be available to do some extra work so that I can be ready". "It's a sprained ankle".

New Orleans, which has played well since losing center DeMarcus Cousins to a season-ending injury in January, kept rolling without Davis, although the Kings made a brief run late in the fourth.

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said after the loss that he wants to see how Davis looks at Saturday's practice, but his assumption is that the forward will be able to go against Utah.

There's a lot to unwrap about this 10-game win streak the Pelicans are riding, which continued on Wednesday with a win over Sacramento and has vaulted them to No. 4 in the West.

"We can do that against teams like this", Davis said. Anthony Davis is averaging 28.1 points and 11.1 rebounds while Jrue Holiday is averaging 19.4 points and 5.8 assists.

Washington took control in the first half, building a 15-point halftime advantage, en route to limiting New Orleans to an extremely rare poor performance on offense.

During their last five games, the Pelicans have scored an average of 121.4 points per game (8.9 above their season average) and allowed an average of 111.6 points per game (0.1 above their season average). "I think that would be a good comparison". "Now it seems that I did get my rhythm".

The Anthony Davis-led New Orleans Pelicans deserve to be apart of the contender discussion during this year's playoffs.

"It's a fight for every spot (in the Western Conference playoffs) from (seeds) three to 10", Gentry said. He was the main reason why Mirotic couldn't get into any type of flow.

Porter's hip has bothered him intermittently this season and he checked out of a victory in Miami in Washington's previous game on Tuesday night after a collision with Dwyane Wade. And we'll put him through some things tomorrow and we'll see.
