The worst thing that can possibly happen to the New Orleans Pelicans occurred during Wednesday night's game, as star forward Anthony Davis left the game against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Davis left for the locker room in the first quarter due to a left ankle injury.

Davis seems to have aggravated his ankle when he went landed awkwardly after going up for a defensive rebound.

If the superstar is out for an extended amount of time, that pretty much ruins any chance that the Pelicans have at contending in the Western Conference this season. The 25-year-old Davis is currently averaging an excellent 28 points and 12.4 rebounds per game so far through 27 games this season.
Per the team, he won't play the remainder of this night with an illness.

Davis is no doubt a top player in the NBA today who doesn't get enough attention, since he plays for a small market team, and it would be a shame if his season or trade market were affected by this.
