New Orleans Pelicans’ big man Anthony Davis left in the first quarter of Sunday’s 103-99 victory over the New York Knicks with an apparent hand injury.

Davis did not return to the game and the Pelicans are calling the injury a “non-displaced fracture in his left hand.” They have listed him as out “indefinitely.”

“I haven’t found anything out yet,” Davis told ESPN New York’s Ian Begley. “Most definitely I hope it’s a short term thing,”

Pelicans’ head coach Monty Williams also didn’t have much to say about the injury.

“I know he hit his hand on the rim on the lob, but I can’t give you an update,” Williams explained.

The injury is quite unfortunate because the #1 overall pick of the 2012 draft is in the middle of a monster year.

On the season, Davis is averaging 19.6 points, 10.6 rebounds and a league-high 3.9 blocks per game. He’s shooting 50.2% from the field and 84.1% from the charity stripe.

The Pelicans will get back to work Monday when they travel to Chicago to take on the Bulls.
