.Anthony Davis' status is uncertain for the Pelicans' game at the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday, but coach Alvin Gentry expects his star forward to attempt to play.

Davis left the first quarter of New Orleans' Friday night loss to the Indiana Pacers after bruising his back when he landed on a row of chairs chasing a loose ball out of bounds.

"I'm sure he'll try (to play Sunday)," Gentry said after Saturday's practice. "We'll go out and he'll continue to get treatment today and this afternoon, and in the morning we'll see how he feels."

Davis, who is averaging 22.8 points and 10.8 rebounds per game, did not practice on Saturday.

"We did very little today anyway, but he didn't do a whole lot today," Gentry said. "Obviously he's just really sore. There's nothing there that's damaged. Just a bruise. We'll just have to see how he feels."
