Anthony Davis expected to begin 2016-17 season with no restrictions


The New Orleans Pelicans haven’t had much good news on the injury front over the last several months, so here’s a welcome development.

Pelicans general manager Dell Demps said on Wednesday that All-Star big man Anthony Davis is expected to be medically cleared for the start of next season without any medical restrictions, per John Reid of the Times-Picayune.

Davis, 23, was shut down in March of last season with a knee injury, then revealed shortly thereafter that he had been playing with a torn labrum in his shoulder for the last three years.

The former No. 1 overall pick has already missed a total 68 games in his brief professional career and seems to have a disturbing frequency of racking up minor injuries that progress into nagging injuries. So this is obviously good news for a Pelicans team that lost Ryan Anderson and Eric Gordon to free agency and will already be without Tyreke Evans and Jrue Holiday for the start of the season. Hopefully, Davis will finally be able to fully deliver on his awesome potential in Year 5 of his NBA journey.
