Anthony Davis returns to Pelicans lineup in time for LeBron James and Cavaliers

According to Woj, Davis is expected to play after missing one game to a left knee injury. That's great news and will take some pressure off of DeMarcus Cousins, though it'll be worth watching whether this affects Jrue Holiday's production. On another note, it'll be interesting to see if Alvin Gentry moves Jameer Nelson into the starting lineup after recent success.
