Pelicans' Anthony Davis out against with thigh injury

ORANDO, Fla. (AP) New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis will not play Wednesday night at Orlando because of a thigh injury.

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said Davis was injured Monday night against Boston but did not show any signs of being injured immediately following the game. Davis complained of tightness Tuesday and then again during shoot around Wednesday. So the decision was made to sit him against the Warriors.

''With those situations happening you don't want to take a chance on something happening,'' Gentry said. ''It's one basketball game and we will re-evaluate where he is.''

Gentry said it's uncertain whether or not Davis will miss additional time.
