NEW ORLEANS -- New Orleans forward Anthony Davis missed the Pelicans' game Sunday night against the Golden State Warriors because of a chest injury that occurred Friday night in a victory over Cleveland.
Pelicans coach Monty Williams said Davis is sore and the club wanted to be cautious about an injury the coach referred to as a "freak deal." Davis left Friday night's game in the first quarter.
Williams said the team has been unable to pinpoint when or how Davis was hurt. Team officials have said the injury may have been caused by a collision with another player's elbow, but Williams says it's possible Davis injured himself.
Davis, who is averaging 24.3 points, 10.2 rebounds and 2.7 blocks, is listed as day to day.
Golden State forward Harrison Barnes left Sunday game to receive treatment for a laceration in his mouth. Barnes was hit hard by an elbow from Dante Cunningham as the Pelicans forward, who had the ball, pivoted near the basket on New Orleans' offensive end.
