New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis will miss Sunday’s game against Golden State, the team announced two hours before the 5 p.m. tipoff in the Smoothie King Center.
Davis suffered a chest contusion in the first quarter of Friday’s victory against Cleveland and was kept overnight in a local hospital as a precaution.
Pelicans coach Monty Williams said Saturday that, although all tests were negative, he would leave it up to Davis’ comfort level as to whether he would play Sunday.
Golden State comes into the game on a franchise-record 15-game winning streak that includes a 112-85 victory against the Pelicans on Dec. 4. The Warriors (20-2) have the best record in the NBA.
