New Orleans Pelicans All-Star power forward Anthony Davis will miss Monday night's game against the Utah Jazz with a sprained right shoulder, the team said.
Davis was injured at 5:28 of the second quarter when he fell hard against dunking a fast-break lob pass from Tyreke Evans during Saturday's game against the Chicago Bulls.
And, Ryan Anderson, who backs up Davis off the bench primarily with his 3-point shooting, is listed as doubtful with right elbow soreness. Anderson shot 1-of-11, including 0-of-5 on 3-point attempts, in the Pelicans 107-72 loss the Chicago.
The injuries come with the Pelicans (27-24) in a close race for a Western Conference playoff race, trailing eighth-place Phoenix by a game and one game ahead of Oklahoma City.
The Pelicans are 2-0 against the Jazz this season, with Davis having averaged 37 points on 73.7 percent shooting (28-of-38), 11.5 rebounds and 2.0 blocks. He had a career-high 43 points along with 14 rebounds in the first meeting on Nov. 22 in Salt Lake City.
This will mark Davis' fifth missed game of the season. The Pelicans play host to the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday, their final game before the All-Star break, Feb. 11-20.
Davis was selected by the fans to start for the Western Conference All-Stars, the first such nod in his three-year career. He is averaging 24.5 points on 55.1 percent shooting, 10.3 rebounds and a league-leading 2.74 blocks.
