Anthony Davis Trade 2019: Pelicans Superstar Unclear to Play All-Star Weekend Due to Shoulder Injury
Anthony Davis was recently injured when the New Orleans Pelicans went against the Oklahoma City Thunder Thursday night. The mishap took place late in the second quarter when the 25-year-old attempted to block a shot, Yahoo Sport reported.
After the incident, Anthony Davis was seen stiffening his left shoulder as he exited the arena. An MRI scan of the affected area revealed that a muscle contusion was the cause of the injury. Fortunately, the damage isn’t severe as confirmed by a source close to the superstar.
However, it’s still up in the air whether or not Anthony Davis will play during the All-Star weekend. But it has been reported that Davis will still head to Charlotte where the exhibition match will take place.
There are a lot of narratives surrounding the upcoming All-Star game and one of them is Anthony Davis playing with Lebron James. With the five-time All-Star voicing his desire to play with the Los Angeles Lakers, Davis has all but sealed this story shut. Or so everyone thought.
Despite the Lakers offering a ridiculous amount of assets in exchange for Anthony Davis, the Pelicans opted to decline the offer and are supposedly waiting what the Boston Celtics comes up with. But even though the trade deadline has passed, Davis will likely wear purple and gold at some point in the near future. At least, that’s the claim of NBA legend and analyst Charles Barkley.
“I think at some point Anthony Davis is going to be with the Lakers. I said that three months ago when he signed with Klutch. I said on ESPN, I said, ‘Well, the fix is in.’ I actually got a call from Rich Paul. I said, ‘Dude, the fix is in. You know he’s going to the Lakers’ because I said it on TV,” Barkley said.
