Pelicans' Anthony Davis: Probable for Thursday

Davis (ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Thursday's preseason finale versus the Magic, John Reid of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

It was reported earlier Wednesday that the team expected Davis to be ready for the Pelicans' season opener on Oct. 26, but his listing as probable for Thursday's final exhibition outing only provides further optimism that Davis is on the brink of a return. A decision for Thursday will ultimately be given following the team's morning shootaround, but as it stands, Davis should be in the lineup.
