Anthony Davis (groin) will not play Monday night for New Orleans

During Tuesday night's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Anthony Davis had his as he received his second technical foul and was booted from his first ever National Basketball Association game.

The Pelicans changed their injury report from "left groin" to "left pelvis" on Saturday, so hopefully he didn't break anything.

How serious was the injury?

Davis went down during the fourth quarter of Friday's 114-108 loss to the Utah Jazz. He stayed on the floor for a few minutes, and was eventually helped to the locker room.

Davis is averaging 25.2 points, 11.0 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game and appears well on his way to another All-Star nod and his third All-NBA first-team selection. Davis is expected to undergo further tests upon returning to New Orleans on Sunday, according to a tweet from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Forward Dante Cunningham, who the Pelicans moved from a starting role to the bench in late November, returned to the starting lineup Saturday. Designated long-range shooter Darius Miller will continue to come off the bench.

The Pelicans are 13-10 against the spread (5-5 home), while they are 12-11 on over/under (5-5 home), and without Davis, I don't think the hosts can put up a fight on this one, but they should score over 100 points without problems. "So there is no reason to change it", he continued.
