This doesn’t sound like your ordinary sprained ankle. It’s so bad that Davis will likely miss summer league and the London Olympics as well.
Anthony Davis, the No. 1 overall draft pick of the New Orleans Hornets, suffered a severely sprained ankle in a workout Saturday and almost assuredly will bypass a chance to play for Team USA this summer in the London Olympics, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Davis, 19, had been invited with several players to work out for Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski prior to a July training camp in Las Vegas, but the injury has likely left the Hornets – and Davis – not wanting to risk the young star’s participation, sources said.
