OAKLAND – Warriors coach Steve Kerr said on Thursday that he hasn't seen much of the New Orleans Pelicans this season, and that he has seen even less of Anthony Davis, their star forward.
"I really haven't watched him, to be honest," Kerr said. "I do watch League Pass, but it seems like every time I've turned one of their games on, he's either been out or maybe I catch a few minutes when he's not on the floor."
That trend likely won't change Friday night, even though the Pelicans are coming into Oracle Arena to face the Warriors.
Davis is listed as doubtful after sustaining a sprained left ankle during shootaround Thursday in Phoenix.
Center Omer Asik (right calf strain) and guard/forward Tyreke Evans (left ankle sprain) are listed as questionable. Guard Jrue Holiday (stress reaction, lower right leg) and forward Ryan (right MCL sprain) already were listed as out.
So the Pelicans could be without five (Davis, Asik, Evans, Holiday and Anderson) of their top sixe players – in which case the Warriors wouldn't get a very good look at a team they could face in the first round of the playoffs.
