NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The New Orleans Pelicans say All-Star forward Anthony Davis will sit out Monday night’s game against Utah because of a sprained right shoulder.

Forward Ryan Anderson also has been ruled out for the game because of a sore right elbow. He is averaging 14.9 points.

Davis’ injury occurred late in the first half of Saturday night’s loss to Chicago. He fell onto his right side after his alley-oop dunk.

He has been listed day to day, meaning his status for Wednesday night’s home game against Indiana remains uncertain.

Davis is averaging 24.5 points, 10.3 rebounds and 2.7 blocks. He has been elected as a starter for Sunday’s All-Star game in New York.

New Orleans is inserting 7-foot-2 Alexis Ajinca, who usually plays center, in the starting lineup for Davis.
