Former UK big man Anthony Davis to miss final three games with knee injury

Former UK star is out for the season after injuring his left knee. - Chris Graythen

Anthony Davis is out for the season after spraining left knee.

The injury bug has hit yet another Kentucky Wildcat center as the New Orleans Hornets' Anthony Davis has been lost for the final three games of the regular season after spraining the MCL in his left knee -- and suffering a bone bruise -- in the fourth quarter of New Orleans' game against Sacramento on Wednesday night. Davis grabbed 10 boards in the contest.

Davis, who missed time earlier this season with an unrelated injury, played in 64 games, posting 60 starts. The centerpiece of UK's 2012 national title team and No. 1 overall selection in last June's NBA Draft, was averaging 28.8 minutes per game, 13.5 points on 51.6 percent field goal shooting, 8.2 rebounds, 1.8 blocks, 1.2 steals, and 1.2 assists per contest.

I'm sure the Big Blue Nation wishes Davis a speedy and complete recovery.

Update on Darius Miller: Davis' UK and New Orleans teammate, Darius Miller, has played in 49 games in this, his rookie year. Miller is averaging 2.4 points and 1.6 rebounds per game. Miller is shooting 41.9 percent from the field, and 41.0 percent from beyond the arc.
