An ankle injury, that one source termed "lightly sprained" coulc keep New Orleans Hornets rookie Anthony Davis out for one to two weeks, jeopardizing his chance at making the U.S. Olympic basketball team.

Davis injured the ankle in a Saturday workout at the Alario Center, and there were reports on Monday that the injury was severe.

Anthony Davis Sr., Davis's father, said by phone on Monday that he didn't know any details about the injury.

"I have no idea," the elder Davis said. "I don't know anything about his ankle. I haven't heard anything."

Sports Illustrated's Sam Amick, quoting USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo, said Colangelo was still gathering information regarding the injuury

I'm going to take this opportunity to point out Woj was wrong again like I pointed out in another thread.

This is great news. This will prevent him from getting injured worse in London.

You never want to hear stuff like this already. Just like RollWithEm said, looking on the bright side, now he won't have to endure the wear-and-tear of playing in the Olympics and then starting training camp afterward.

it's like I told my buddy from Portland when he was worrying about Greg Oden: It's probably nothing...

USA Basketball Chairman Jerry Colangelo announced today that USA Basketball National Team alternate and 2012 NBA No. 1 draft pick Anthony Davis (New Orleans Hornets) will suit up for the red, white and blue for tonight’s USA-Dominican Republic exhibition game at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. Nev. Davis, who was in Las Vegas, was added after Blake Griffin (Los Angeles Clippers) flew back to Los Angeles today for evaluation of his left knee.

Anthony Davis is moving well out there, I dont think the ankle is that bad. He just hit a 3 and talked trash to Coach Calipari on DR's bench.

Yeah, it was never 'severe' as was first reported. He said he had planned on getting back on the court on Tuesday or yesterday. I figured by Sunday he'd be ok to play in the Summer League games but now it looks like he may be headed to London. Apparently Blake has to officially withdraw before Davis can formally take his spot.
