Pelicans star Anthony Davis is listed as probable for New Orleans' game Saturday night against Utah.
Davis went down hard after colliding with Chris Paul during the Pelicans' 111-90 loss to the Clippers on Friday night. He was carried off the court with a bruised knee and did not return. Luckily, it appears he wont miss any time from the injury.

That’s good news to Pelicans fans, and perhaps surprising to those who witnessed the scary incident in real time. With the Clippers leading the Pelicans 80-63 late in the third quarter, Paul dribbled down court on a fast break then ran into Davis’s right knee at midcourt. Davis immediately began hobbling and grabbed the right side of his knee.
Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry drew a technical for arguing the play since it appeared Paul initiated the contact and Davis was called for the foul. Davis had to be carried off the court into the locker room.

Jrue Holiday is also listed to start for the injury-ravaged Pelicans, and it would be his first time starting back-to-back games all season.
