More on Anthony Davis Injury

For a second straight game, New Orleans will face a formidable Northwest Division foe Monday, again without the services of five-time All-Star forward Anthony Davis. Just prior to this morning’s shootaround in Colorado, Davis (right elbow sprain) was officially ruled out of a Western Conference meeting with the Denver Nuggets.
Davis’ status going forward is day-to-day, with New Orleans fourth-year head coach Alvin Gentry saying, “He still has a sore elbow. We’re not going to take any chances six games into the season. When he feels better, we’ll play him.”
“We’ve got to do a little more,” said Jrue Holiday, who indicated that he expects to slide over to point guard in Monday’s game. “Rebounding, (without) his presence on the court, sometimes being a little more physical on the bigs. The guards, we have to crack back and keep those bigs off the boards.”
Scott Kushner: "He did it last night, but it was not even a factor until he got home. There was some soreness. Obviously we are not going to take any risk with that." - Alvin Gentry, on Anthony Davis' elbow injury, which sidelines him for tonight's game vs. Jazz.

For the second straight night, Davis was forced to leave his team's game with an injury. He exited Wednesday night's contest at the Sacramento Kings in the third quarter after rolling his left ankle after grabbing a rebound. The Pelicans announced that X-rays taken were negative, but Davis did not return in the team's 114-101 win -- New Orleans' 10th straight victory. Coach Alvin Gentry said Davis will get an MRI on Thursday when the team returns home.
"Won't know anything until tomorrow," Gentry said. "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."

Warriors hopeful of signing Patty Mills?

Sources say the Warriors have hope with free-agent guard Patty Mills, the long-time Spurs reserve. He figures to be one of those difference-making fits. At 32, with a championship ring, 90 career playoff games and noteworthy international experience, Mills checks the veteran box. The Warriors could use his shot-making and offensive creation.
This rumor is part of a storyline: 18 more rumors
If Jazz forward Joe Ingles is indeed available for trade, sources say the Warriors do have interest — just no good way to get him. Ingles, approaching 34, fits the Warriors’ need for a veteran and another offensive playmaker. His passing would fit perfectly with the Warriors. He can run point forward and spot up off the ball, making him viable with the starters and the second unit. He’s got 45 playoff games under his belt. He shot a career-best 45.1 percent from 3 on a career-high 6.1 attempts per game — his third season at 44 percent or above. He’s also reputed for being a great guy and would add to the culture of the locker room.
The most viable option to get Ingles is to see where Oubre Jr. signs and try to convert it into a sign-and-trade. In that scenario, the Warriors would get a traded player exception in exchange for Oubre and they could use that exception to get Ingles, if he is available. But that’s adding $13 million (plus the repeater tax) to what is already the league’s highest payroll. Ingles is good, but is he good enough for Lacob to stomach the added cost? The Warriors could keep the TPE for potential use later, but the same question would come up.
