Anthony Davis 'very unlikely' to play vs. Blazers

Anthony Davis fined $25K following first career ejection

New Orleans Pelicans forward Dante Cunningham is listed as the starter in the game notes for Saturday's matchup with the Portland Trail Blazers.

New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis was fined $25,000 by the NBA for two technical fouls during Wednesday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, resulting in the first ejection of his professional basketball career. The play went on for almost 20 seconds as Davis lay on the floor, clutching the left side of his midsection.

It's the second game Davis has been forced to leave early this season due to injury, joining an October 24 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. Portland provided a momentary scare on the previous play, missing a reverse layup that would've cut the margin to only three points after it had been eight moments earlier. He was taken to the locker room on a wheelchair, according to several sources.

Anthony Davis is having an wonderful season, solidifying his spot as one of the top five players in the National Basketball Association. In the end, New Orleans (11-11) suffered a third straight loss.

Davis has a long history of injuries, but he played 75 games last season while staying relatively healthy.
