New Orleans Pelicans jpbThe Pelicans have played well without star forward Anthony Davis, and they will have to do it now for a considerable time.

The Pelicans announced Tuesday that Davis will miss 4 to 6 weeks. The club says he was diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture of the 5th metacarpal of his left hand. Davis underwent further evaluations by the club’s medical staff Tuesday morning in New Orleans.

He injured his hand in a collision in the lane in the first quarter of Sunday’s victory against the Knicks in New York.

Monday night, the Pelicans won 131-128 in triple overtime at Chicago.
