AD was an early exit from the Pels' most recent game, a114-101 win over the Sacramento Kings, due to an ankle injury.

The Pelicans are on a franchise record-tying 10-game winning streak, during which Davis has scored 41 or more points five times. Said injury occurred in the third quarter when Davis landed on the foot of former Jazzman Kosta Koufos while corralling a rebound underneath the hoop. That said, if he's out as expected, Nikola Mirotic, Cheick Diallo and Emeka Okafor should see the majority of the team's frontcourt minutes.

The 10-game winning streak matches the Pelicans' franchise record set January 9-26, 2011. "We went out there and thought it was going to be an easy game".

New Orleans has won its last 10 games and is now the No. 4 seed in the west with a record of 38-26.

In the same game, Beal connected on five 3-pointers on the way to 26 points, five rebounds, four assists, and a couple of steals to lead Washington to victory.

"It seemed like everything was real hard", Sacramento coach Dave Joerger said. "We've got to also play smart". The Pelicans have announced Davis' status is day-to-day.

That question is easy enough to answer thanks to Forbes' list of the richest people in the world for 2018. Bezos replaced the Microsoft co-founder, Bill Gates , who fell back into second place with 90bn dollars.

New Orleans has won 10 consecutive games and its performance has really made an impression on Warriors forward Draymond Green.

Jrue Holiday vs Bradley Beal - These guys are theoretically the second ball-handling options on their team, but both have been doing more than enough facilitating of late.

The Pelicans get a break with eight of their next nine in New Orleans after playing eight of their past 11 on the road.

And in a playoff race this tight, you take help where you can get it.

"We knew that this would be a real hard stretch", Gentry said. He briefly remained in Wednesday's game, but was shortly taken to the team's locker room with 3:11 remaining in the third.
