Found November 10, 2012 on NBA Injury News:
Anthony Davis was cleared to play last night, and play he did.  The New Orleans Hornets' rookie center returned to action after being sidelined with a mild concussion.  Davis suffered the concussion when he took an elbow to the head from a teammate.  He was able to pass all the required concussion tests, and he was impressive in his return.In 36 minutes, Davis scored 23 points and pulled down 11 rebounds.  But he wasn't done there.  Davis also chipped in five blocked shots, two assists, and a steal.  Talk about domination. Davis was the number one overall draft pick this past summer.  The Hornets were fortunate enough to win the draft lottery got Davis, and may have a franchise player in him.  In his one season at Kentucky, Davis averaged 14.2 points per game, 10.4 rebounds per game, and blocked 186 shots in 40 games.The Hornets have moved to 3-2 on the season now, and with Davis back in action they may be able to stay afloat and possibly even compete.  However, the young center will need to stay healthy to be a true impact player in the NBA.  Concussions are difficult to avoid, but with proper conditioning, Davis can work toward avoiding other injuries that may limit him.
