In fact, ESPN reported during the second half that Davis had his arm in a sling under his shirt and left the building with his agent, Rich Paul, before the end of the game. He did not return to the court after halftime and was ruled out for the rest of the game.
But it's only a matter of time before the Pelicans have to learn to play without Davis for good anyway, and they managed rather well following the six-time All-Star's departure against record-setting guard Russell Westbrook and the Thunder.
Paul and Anthony Davis Sr., the forward's father, were reportedly in attendance for Thursday night's game, seen sitting courtside across from the Pelicans bench.
After the game, Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry wasn't interested in discussing Davis.

Morris (6-foot-10, 245 pounds) is an eight-year veteran who last played 34 games for Washington this season. Even the mighty Warriors struggled to score in their final pre-break game getting beat by 22 points. With the loss, New Orleans fell to 25-33 overall and 16-11 at home.
Patrick Patterson has come on since the beginning of 2019, shooting 46.9 percent from 3-point range on more than two attempts per game, but Morris would provide a more versatile scoring option with the ability to guard multiple positions.
