New Orleans Hornets forward Anthony Davis will return to the court Tuesday after missing time because of an ankle injury, according to Jimmy Smith of the Times-Picayune.

Davis will come off the bench Tuesday, according to Jim Eichenhofer of Hornets.com.

Davis has missed the last 11 games with the injury. Davis, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, has played just six games this season.

With Davis this season, the Hornets are 2-4. Without Davis this season, the Hornets are 3-10.

In those six games, Davis averaged 16 points and eight rebounds per game.

The Hornets will be glad to have the 6'10 forward back as they try to snap a three-game losing streak. They'll try to do that against one of the only teams in the NBA with a worst record -- the Washington Wizards -- on Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET.

Davis will rejoin the lineup with Ryan Anderson, who has been the Hornets' go-to player this season with Davis out. Anderson is averaging 18 points and eight rebounds per game.
