Update: The Hornets have announced that Davis sustained a mild concussion and is day-to-day. He won't make the trip for the Hornets trip to Chicago to face the Bulls.



The Hornets' Anthony Davis was involved in a collision with fellow rookie Austin Rivers and took an elbow to the head, which caused the injury. The NBA has strengthened its program for evaluating concussions, and Davis will have to clear multiple tests before being allowed to return to action.

Davis had had another strong start to the game with 8 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 blocks in just 14 minutes. We'll keep you updated on his condition.
