Davis exited Wednesday's 114-101 win at Sacramento because of the sprained ankle in the third quarter and did not return. Gentry did say he's "optimistic" that Davis will be able to play on Sunday at least.

Davis' production has surged during New Orleans franchise record-tying 10-game winning streak, which has moved the Pelicans into the top four in the Western Conference.

Markieff Morris hit a critical 3-pointer in overtime to key the victory, but he knows upcoming road games against New Orleans on Friday and Miami on Saturday are important as the Wizards try to position themselves for the playoffs.

"I feel fine but they'll have the team doctor look at it tomorrow and go from there", Davis said. However, now they have won 10 straight, with Davis carrying the load much of the time. Sure, it stems from the notion that Davis has upped his game since the injury to DeMarcus Cousins. As Davis was examined in the locker room during the fourth quarter, Jrue Holiday and Nikola Mirotic used a previously-unexplored two-man game to fend off the suddenly hot-shooting Kings. The season of Steph's year, Steph was just off the chart.

Bobby Portis reacts to Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, Tom Thibodeau reunion
Tom Thibodeau got one step closer to bringing his old band of the Chicago Bulls back together by signing Derrick Rose . The Cavaliers traded Rose to the Jazz last month and the Jazz waived the 2011 most valuable player shortly thereafter.

The Pelicans' brilliant overall form - New Orleans, alongside the Rockets, are the only side to have gone undefeated over the past ten games. "We went out there and thought it was going to be an easy game". He finished with 17 points, five rebounds, five blocks and two steals.

"Having him out there, we still have to execute; not having him out there, we still have to execute, and that's defensively and offensively", Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. It will be 11 on the trot for New Orleans, who will win this one 116-109.

If Davis doesn't play, the Wizards' chances in this game will be exponentially higher, but even if he doesn't the Pelicans will still get over the line.
