Anthony Davis 'day-to-day' with ankle sprain, doubtful for Friday

The Wiz have beaten the Pelicans in 11 of their last 12 meetings and have only lost to the Pels once since they changed their name for the 2013-14 season. X-rays on Davis' left ankle returned negative.

"Won't know anything until tomorrow", Gentry said.

Since the Pels lost their other All-Star big, DeMarcus Cousins, to a ruptured Achilles, Davis has taken his game to another level and inserted himself into the MVP conversation. "Any time you twist an ankle it hurts, especially when you come down on somebody's foot, because you really don't have any protection. It was sore. I just wanted to make sure everything was fine".

Let's concentrate on how exactly AD is effective on both ends of the floor and Jrue Holiday's undermined success. "What I will say is, James has been second two times". In his past ten games, he is dishing out 6.7 dimes a night, to go with his 21.5 points. Nikola Mirotic is the third double-digit scorer and E'Twaun Moore is grabbing 2.9 rebounds.

The 10-game winning streak matches the Pelicans' franchise record set January 9-26, 2011.

Fox has been a staple in the Kings' starting lineup as of late, and he has not disappointed.

For De'Aaron Fox, he left the last game against the New Orleans Pelicans with a lower back strain and did not return.

"It seemed like everything was real hard", Sacramento coach Dave Joerger said.

The New Orleans Pelicans have reeled off 10 consecutive victories, leaving a favorable impression on the Golden State Warriors' defensive stalwart.

The Wizards are 34-15 when they score above 100 points, while the Pelicans are 36-18. The Washington Wizards are allowing 33.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43 rebounds per game. "We just got to continue to strive to get better and continue to work". "Now it seems that I did get my rhythm".

Meanwhile, New Orleans is 38-26 SU and 36-28 ATS.

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. The Heat, who the Wizards will play again tomorrow night, are 2.5 games behind the Wizards as they sit in the seventh seed. Friday's game will complete a two-game series between the Pelicans and Wizards.
