Anthony Davis might not play in the Pelicans’ season opener against the Nuggets

The Pelicans’ Anthony Davis could miss his team’s first game of the season against the Denver Nuggets on Oct. 26.

New Orleans’ star big man suffered a Grade 2 right ankle sprain in a preseason game against the Houston Rockets on Tuesday in Beijing. He is expected to miss between 10-15 days, Marc Spears of The Undefeated reported.

The Nuggets and Pelicans play in exactly 14 days.

Last year, Davis averaged 24.3 points, 10.3 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game.
