Anthony Davis has missed most of the Pelicans’ loss to the Trail Blazers and win over the Kings, the team’s last two games.

With a showdown looming against LeBron James and the Cavaliers Saturday night, it looks like the Pelican’s star will be back, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Davis, a First Team All-NBA player last season, is averaging 24.3 points with an impressive 62.1 true shooting percentage, plus is pulling down 12.8 rebounds a game this season. He still gets most of his buckets at the rim (where he is 22-of-29 this season) but is also shooting 45.5 percent from three.
