Top overall draft choice Anthony Davis has been scratched from New Orleans' lineup against New York on Tuesday night because of a flare-up of his left ankle injury that first occurred Friday night.
Team officials call Davis' injury a ''stress reaction,'' which is an area of bone tenderness which, if exacerbated, can develop into a fracture.
Davis is officially listed as day-to-day. Davis has not yet been ruled out of Wednesday night's game at Indiana and team officials say he will travel with the club.
Davis initially hurt his ankle during the Hornets' loss to Oklahoma City, but played through it and continued to practice.
The club did not rule him out of the game against the Knicks until shortly before tipoff.

As much as the New Orleans Hornets might miss big man Anthony Davis, there's probably little he could do about their defensive problems on the perimeter.
Opponents are hitting 3-pointers at an alarming rate against the Hornets, who could be without Davis again as they try to avoid a sixth straight loss Friday night in a road game against the Phoenix Suns.

Little was going right for the New Orleans Hornets even before Anthony Davis was forced to sit out another game.
The No. 1 overall pick may be out again Wednesday night when New Orleans visits the Indiana Pacers, who hope to get another solid performance from former Hornet David West.

Three games (one which involved the Raptors and another that featured the Hornets minus Anthony Davis) didn’t really provide the type of material necessary for a good “Starting Lineup,” so I decided to roll with “Things That Happened” instead. Hopefully this video-based blurb of a post will quench your thirst for NBA information, but keep in mind that I didn’t have...
