Broken Birds: Anderson, Davis Injured


Updated 14:26

The Pelicans have shown signs of life before. Prior to the recent rays of hope, the Hornets showed signs of life. Before that, the same could be said of the Jazz. Yet, it seems that every time New Orleans starts to establish a presence on the hardwood, injuries intervene. Last night (2.21), Pels stars Ryan Anderson and Anthony Davis both left a game versus Miami due to injury, but this time the team held on and logged an emphatic 105-91 win.


Brow Seat


Pelicans faithful have anxiously been waiting for Anthony Davis’ return to hardwood. Now, the rest of the nation will join them. The Brow announced that due to his pesky right shoulder strain he will sit out the All-Star weekend.


Brow Now: Anthony Davis to the All-Star Game


The Pelicans may be struggling, but Anthony Davis has emerged as a star. And, as of Thursday (1.22), he has emerged as an All-Star. According to the League Davis been named a starter on the NBA Western Conference All-Star team after earning the most votes of all frontcourt players in the conference.


High Brow: Davis in Lead With One Day Remaining for All Star Voting


Anthony Davis’ injured toe kept him out of the Sunday (1.18) afternoon Pelicans game. But, with one day remaining, the Brow is still on the NBA All Star ballot and faring well. One day of voting remains.


Brow-sing the Channels


The Pelicans faithful may be disheartened by the team’s struggle to tay above .500 this season. However, the Birds are working hard to build a winning franchise out of year of despair. This week, NBA TV will take a look at the intense machinations behind the scenes in an episode of The Association.


Rivers Seeing Green


In 2012, New Orleans’ basketball team was celebrating a name change and two premier draft picks. One of the newcomers to the newly minted Pelicans was guard Austin Rivers. Unfortunately, the the party was short lived. After two and a half seasons of frustrating play, the Pelicans are shipping Rivers to Boston as a part of a three way deal according to league sources.


Eric Gordon Out Indefinitely (Again)


Pelicans Guard Eric Gordon is injured again. The team said that the player will be out “indefinitely” while he undergoes medical evaluation. Gordon’s four year, 58 million dollar contract was lauded after Chris Paul’s departure, but since arrival Gordon and his salary look more like an albatross than a Pelican.


Free Throw: Pelicans to Host Open Practice


It’s early October and once again NOLA basketball fans are echoing their annual refrain. “We look good. This is going to be our year.” On Saturday (10.25), the faithful will have a chance to see for themselves when the Pelicans host a free open practice.


Boards Game: Pelicans Unveil New Court


The Pelicans are not afraid of change. The NBA franchise has had three names in total. They introduced a new mascot. Five months later, they changed his look under the pretense of reconstructive surgery. Now, the team is unveiling a new age court.


Pelicans Add 3 to Training Camp Roster


Coming off a 2013-14 season stunted by injuries, the Pelicans are loading up on players this year. On Friday (9.27), the team announced the addition of three journeymen to their training camp roster. Kevin Jones, Dionte Christmas, and Vernon Macklin will be vying to make the final cut for NOLA’s NBA franchise.
