Anthony Davis will not have surgery to fix a partially torn labrum in his left shoulder after all, but the New Orleans Pelicans star did undergo a left knee procedure that will keep him from basketball activities for three to four months, the Pelicans announced Thursday.
Davis revealed Sunday that he has been playing through the shoulder injury since his rookie season. Davis anticipated having surgery to his shoulder in addition to a procedure to correct tendinosis in his left knee when he addressed the media in New Orleans on Sunday. But after evaluation and consultation with Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles, it was determined Davis’ shoulder did not require surgery.
