There were countless bright spots for the Pelicans last night after their first preseason win of the NBA preseason with the 98-86 victory over the Miami Heat. However, the Pelicans suffered a scare when their franchise player Anthony Davis had to leave the game with an injury. The good news is, Anthony Davis’ injury appears not to be serious at all:
Anthony Davis jammed his left index finger in 1st half. X-rays were negative. He is available to return to the game in 2nd half

As long as the Pelicans have Davis for the entire season, they could slip into the playoffs and the Western Conference better make sure not to get upset by the Pelicans.
