New Orleans Hornets rookie forward Anthony Davis will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury suffered during the April 10 game against the Sacramento Kings, the team reported yesterday.
Davis suffered a sprained Medial Collateral Ligament and bone bruise in his left knee after colliding with Sacramento guard Marcus Thornton with 5:45 to play in the game. He underwent an MRI yesterday, which revealed no additional structural damage.
