Dante Cunningham listed as Pelicans' starter in place of Anthony Davis (groin)

Dante Cunningham listed as Pelicans' starter in place of Anthony Davis (groin)

Davis was scheduled for an MRI Saturday, and coach Alvin Gentry told reporters he's "very unlikely" to play Sunday against the Trail Blazers.

With the Pelicans awaiting further word on Davis' left pelvis injury, New Orleans improved to 2-0 this season in games with Davis sidelined, including the Week 2 comeback win at Sacramento on TNT.

Davis was injured Friday night early in the fourth quarter of 114-108 loss to the Utah Jazz.

It's concerning that Davis couldn't put weight on the leg and collapsed without contact on an otherwise innocuous play under the basket.

Davis was immediately placed in a wheelchair and taken to the locker room.

It's the second game Davis has been forced to leave early this season due to injury, joining an October 24 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.

The NBA says New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis has been fined $25,000 in connection with his ejection from a game against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night.

As it turns out, the injury will hold him out for longer than just part of Friday's game.
