Anthony Davis is one of the best players in the NBA right now. Quite possibly, many people believe he is a top 5 NBA player when healthy.
Davis is a rare talented player that people tend to forget due to the fact he struggles to remain healthy. He took an elbow to the head while defending Nuggets star center Nikola Jokic and did not return.
The four-time All-Star is needed to play as many games as he can with all-star DeMarcus Cousins. With these top players on the court with the addition of Rajon Rondo and Jrue Holiday, the Pelicans are sure to crack the 6th-8th Western Conference seed.
Davis is one of the best two-way players in the NBA that is capable of switching from guards and bigs at any given moment.
While Davis is out, Cousins will have to take on additional responsibilities as the go-to option for the Pelicans. The all-star PF should be back in the next week or two following concussion protocols.
