Knee injury ends season 3 games early for ex-Cat Davis

April 11, 2013 

The New Orleans Hornets said Thursday they will sit Anthony Davis for their final three games because of his left knee injury.

The 6-foot-10 rookie forward, the top overall draft pick out of Kentucky, was hurt when he collided with Marcus Thornton during the fourth quarter of Wednesday night’s loss at Sacramento.

The Hornets say Davis was diagnosed with a sprained medial collateral ligament and bone bruise in his knee.

Davis averaged 13.5 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 28.8 minutes this season.
