Pelicans foward Anthony Davis played through a dislocated his pinky finger during Wednesday’s crucial victory over San Antonio, which sent the team to the Western Conference playoffs.
The injury occured during the game. Davis received quick treatment on the pinky from a trainer, and then he got a pep talk from teammate Tyreke Evans. Evans asked him if he wanted to sit out the rest of the game or get back into the game and help the team make the playoffs.
Davis had 31 points, 13 rebounds and three blocked shots, scored a key basket down the stretch and ripped down three big rebounds as the Spurs threatened to pull out a victory or send the game into overtime.
