New Orleans Pelicans center Anthony Davis is expected to miss one-to-two weeks with a left index finger sprain suffered in Friday's 128-112 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, the team announced.

Davis injured the finger in the fourth quarter but briefly returned.

The five-time All-Star will re-evaluate the injury in three-to-four days and will decide if he needs to see a hand specialist, Davis' agent Rich Paul told The Athletic's Shams Charania.

It will be a crucial stretch without Davis for the Pelicans, as the team has dropped three of their last four contests and sit four games out of a playoff spot.

The 25-year-old is averaging career highs in points (29.3), rebounds (13.3), assists (4.4), and steals (1.7).

The Pelicans (21-25) have lost four of five games without Davis this season.
