Pelicans forward Anthony Davis fined $25000 for verbally abusing referee

Postgame recap Jazz 114 Pelicans 108

With the Pelicans awaiting further word on Davis' left pelvis injury, New Orleans improved to 2-0 this season in games with Davis sidelined, including the Week 2 comeback win at Sacramento on TNT.

Anthony Davis was already having a pretty bad day.

New Orleans will have to rely on center DeMarcus Cousins to provide the bulk of the scoring, as the Pelicans have lost three games in a row, going back to the.500 mark at 11-11 for the season.

Davis was battling with Utah's Derrick Favors under the basket early in the fourth quarter when he crumpled to the ground. He was taken to the locker room on a wheelchair, according to several sources. Davis was listed as doubtful to return, and he would not re-enter the game.




The four-time All-Star has been somewhat injury plagued throughout his National Basketball Association career, though he played in a career-high 75 games just last season.

Anthony Davis has been fined $25,000 for verbally abusing a game official, and failing to leave the court in a timely manner following his ejection.

Pelicans management have not issued a statement on the fine. It was the first ejection of his career.
