After Joe Johnson missed Tuesday morning’s practice with what was initially believed to be a wrist sprain, an MRI revealed the real issue later that evening. The NBA veteran will miss at least two weeks with tendon instability in his right wrist before being re-evaluated by team doctors. “Unfortunately, we’re in a situation where Joe (Johnson) and Dante (Exum), a couple of our important players are out. It is what it is,” Snyder said during Wednesday morning’s shootaround. “It’s more than just one guy stepping up, it’s our whole team continuing to execute together and play to each other’s strengths and Jonas is part of that.”

Davis said that hearing former players such as Kevin Garnett express regret about not asking sooner for a trade to a more competitive franchise has made him think. “It makes you think, ’cause you’re wondering if you’re following in that same path,” he said. “But then again, you’re like, ‘This year could be the year.’ So, just got to take it year by year and just see, and see where the team is going, what direction they want to go to and just see where their head is.”

Storyline: Anthony Davis Trade?
As New Orleans star Anthony Davis prepares for the second half of the season with the Pelicans holding on to the eighth seed in the Western Conference, he still thinks about what could have been this year had teammate DeMarcus Cousins not ruptured his Achilles. “We could have gone through the playoffs. No one could really stop us as bigs. We go to the Finals if we went,” Davis told ESPN’s Rachel Nichols in an interview over All-Star weekend. [Teammate Rajon Rondo] reminds us of it: ‘You guys are the two best bigs. I know what it takes to win championships; we got it.’”

Davis said he has been mirroring Russell Westbrook’s approach to keep the Pelicans in the playoff picture. They are 4-5 since Cousins’ injury, compared to 27-21 before that. “You kind of have that Russell Westbrook mentality when [Kevin Durant] went out,” Davis said. “Russ just went out there and played, and he shot 40 shots sometimes, you know, whatever it takes to help your team win, and I’m kind of taking that approach.”
