Injuries Piling Up in Disappointing Season for Davis

This latest setback came after the All-Star suffered a back injury Jan. 8 against the Indiana Pacers after chasing down a loose ball. Davis saved it before tumbling into the crowd:

Davis dealt with a couple of nagging injuries early this season: a right hip injury and a left shoulder injury in November.

It's been a year to forget for Davis and the Pelicans, who are in 12th place in the Western Conference at 16-27 despite their superstar averaging 23.3 points and 10.3 rebounds per game before he was injured. But New Orleans isn't out of the playoff picture. 

The Pelicans get their best player back at a critical time. If the Pelicans fight their way back into playoff contention, they'll do it with Davis at the helm.
