Pelicans Gentry to ‘Consider’ Shutting Down Anthony Davis


All but eliminated from playoff contention and with injuries mounting, New Orleans Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry conceded that he’d be open to shutting down superstar Anthony Davis for the rest of the season.

“I wouldn’t say no to that. I wouldn’t say no to that,” Gentry said Saturday. “I think we’ve gotta be smart collectively, along with him. And like I said, I think we’ll know a lot more after they talk to the doctors today. And then I think there can be some decisions made. I think that’s something that he would definitely have to consider.”
