Davis has missed 11 games because of what trainers called a stress reaction in his left ankle, a condition which could have led to a fracture if not rested and treated.

The rookie out of Kentucky was off to a strong start to his NBA career before being sidelined, averaging 16 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game in six games. He also missed time earlier this season with a concussion.

During his most recent 11-game absence, the Hornets were 2-9.

New Orleans still awaits the return of guard Eric Gordon, who has not yet played this season because of a right knee injury.
