Anthony Davis suffered a severely sprained ankle in a Hornets workout and almost assuredly is unable to play for Team USA, sources tell Y!

Wasn't sure if this was Bobcats forum material..but I definately thought it was worth sharing.

Edit:

This is a little excerpt on A Davis from nbadraft.net's scouting report from Adam Ganeles 2/23/12

http://nbadraft.net/players/anthony-davis

Weaknesses: Very slender, even for the collegiate level ... It's likely that he just needs some time to fill into his new found height, but that remains to be seen ... As of now, the combination of his frail frame and aggressiveness gets him into foul trouble fairly quickly when matched up with a bigger opponent ... Isn't refined offensively. His shooting ability and post moves are solid, but will need to show improvement if he ever wants to be a go-to scorer at the NBA level ... Growth spurt could cause some issues with his knees, could experience some significant pain and could also be a little injury prone for the next year or so ...

Well a bad ankle sprain aint really nothing to worry about as long as it's treated right. I hope he has a long and succesful career. Im plenty happy with MKG after learning more about him through the draft stories.

Yeah I'd hate to see this guy become Greg Oden 2.0.

There's ZERO reason to hold a grudge against a guy who had nothing to do with the NBA screwing over the city of Charlotte.

I'm sure he probably just tweaked his ankle and the team/himself don't feel like risking further injury on some games that the USA doesn't need him for anyway. Can't say I blame them.

It's a hard issue for me because I am extremely pissed that we had the #1 pick stolen from us, and I've seen people hoping he'd get injured so New Orleans will pay for it, but it's not Davis' fault. He even said after the lottery that he wanted to play for Jordan.

He seems like a good kid and I hope it's not anything serious. I also wish him a long, healthy career. But, ideally, it would be as a Michael Olowakandi-type player, lol. Then everything will be perfect.

Gilchrist will most certainly ALWAYS be injured, based on the fact that his calling card it throwing his body around.

MKG happens to be built a lot better than AD though.

He tested with only 7% body fat and he has great weight and size for his position.

Davis on the other hand is a little lanky for his position and does not have the muscle that say; someone like Bismack Biyombo has to help combat their limitations of a small frame.

I know that in 2010, Kidd-Gilchrist suffered a leg injury but wouldn't come out of the game upon his coaches request because he is such a strong competitor.

To my knowledge, this is the only injury that Gilchrist has encountered.
