"It’s a better outcome than we originally feared," Paul said. On Tuesday, his agent revealed the injury could potentially sideline Davis two-to-four weeks.
Davis suffered a volar plate avulsion fracture on his left index finger during last Friday's loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. Paul told ESPN that Davis will be re-evaluated every 48 to 72 hours.
"It’s more of an injury of pain tolerance," he said. "They need to see the swelling go down and the range of motion increase."
The Pelicans are 2-4 without Davis this season.
