Washington Wizards at New Orleans Pelicans ATS Preview 03/09/18

Davis scored 17 points before rolling his left ankle and leaving in the third quarter of a 114-101 win over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night.

All-Star forward Anthony Davis (sprained left ankle) was officially ruled out for Friday's 7 p.m. start against the Washington Wizards, the team announced shortly before tipoff.

At that point, fans who may well have been enthralled by New Orleans' franchise record-tying 10-game winning streak seemed to be losing interest in the way the Pelicans were performing against Washington, and many began heading toward the exits.

Nikola Mirotic will take Davis' spot in the Pelicans' first unit. Anthony Davis led both teams with 37 points in the first game, in which the Pelicans lost 116-106, unable to cover as 2.5-point underdogs.

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry says he is "optimistic" about Davis' prospects for returning Sunday afternoon against Utah.

Davis been playing tremendously of late and was named the Western Conference Player of the Month for February.

The New Orleans Pelicans will attempt to secure the longest winning streak in franchise history without either of the team's superstars.

The Pelicans are now 0-4 in their past four games against the Wizards, and have lost 11 of their past 12 games versus Washington.

Washington small forward Otto Porter Jr. left the last game with a hip contusion and is questionable to play tonight. "They took X-rays but couldn't really tell a lot from the X-rays, so we'll go back home and I'm sure he'll have an MRI at some stage tomorrow and we'll have more information". The good news is I think is that it's not as serious as maybe it looked. In his past ten games, he is dishing out 6.7 dimes a night, to go with his 21.5 points.

If Davis doesn't play, the Wizards' chances in this game will be exponentially higher, but even if he doesn't the Pelicans will still get over the line. The Pelicans shot 60.9 percent (14 of 23) in the opening quarter.

Miller scored four points as New Orleans edged in front, 27-26, before going cold.

AD is averaging 53.6 FanDuel points per game this season.

Kings starting point guard De'Aaron Fox and starting center Willie Cauley-Stein will miss Friday's game against the Orlando Magic at Golden 1 Center with lower back strains.
