New Orleans Hornets Team Report – January 20

=== New Orleans Hornets Team Report – January 20 ===

(Sports Network) – The New Orleans Hornets may have lost more than just the
game in Monday’s 97-90 setback to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Baron Davis led New Orleans with 25 points, but left the game midway through
the fourth quarter with a sprained left ankle and did not return. Darrell
Armstrong netted 18 points to go with eight assists for the Hornets, losers of
five of their last six games.

Davis, who had 18 points in the first half, suffered the injury after landing
awkwardly upon taking a jump shot with the Hornets trailing 85-84. He hobbled
off the court and headed to the team’s locker room for further evaluation.

New Orleans was also without rookie forward David West, who missed his fourth
consecutive game with a sore knee. There is no timetable for his return.

Davis will be re-evaluated on Tuesday and is questionable for Wednesday’s game
against Philadelphia.
