Pelicans' Davis out 1-2 weeks with sprained finger

New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis sprained his left index finger in Friday’s 128-112 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers and will miss up to two weeks, the team announced on Saturday.
Davis injured the finger swiping at the ball as Portland’s Zach Collins held it on the wing. He immediately grabbed at his hand after making contact with Collins’ arm.
The All-Star center left with just over a minute to play, having tried to return with his fingers taped together. Davis had X-rays taken at the Moda Center following the game.
Davis, who scored 27 points vs. the Blazers, is having another monster season with career-best averages in points (29.3), rebounds (13.3) and assists (4.4).
The injury comes at a perilous time for the Pelicans (21-25), who have lost two straight and are four games behind the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
