Overall, the Pelicans are 12-1 against the Pistons since the start of the 2012-13 season, including a perfect 2-0 when Davis has missed the matchup. With AD out of the lineup for a second consecutive game, can New Orleans make it 3-0 after tonight?
If so, they’ll have to do it with a laboring E’Twaun Moore. The Pelicans usual starter at small forward is banged up and will see limited action per head coach Alvin Gentry. There’s a good chance that he’ll miss tomorrow’s matchup in OKC against the Thunder as well.
For Detroit, Andre Drummond is a game-time decision.
Pistons Head Coach Dwane Casey says Andre Drummond (concussion) is still a game-time decision vs the #Pelicans. If he can’t go, Zaza Pachulia will start in his place.— Daniel Sallerson (@dsallerson) January 23, 2019
In other Pelicans news, Adrian Wojnarowski published an article stating that Davis could return as soon as next week, pending a favorable evaluation.
Davis will be reevaluated on Friday -- one week from suffering the injury -- and then again every 48 to 72 hours, Paul told ESPN.
This information sounds infinitely more positive than what we heard from Shams Charania yesterday!
