Hornets’ Davis out with back injury

New Orleans, LA (Sports Network) – New Orleans Hornets guard Baron Davis is
expected to be sidelined one-to-two weeks because of a lower back injury.

Davis hurt his back during the fourth quarter of Friday’s loss to Atlanta and
did not make the trip to Milwaukee for Saturday’s game against the Bucks. The
injury was first diagnosed as a strain, but an MRI exam revealed an inflamed
disc.

The 25-year-old Davis is averaging 24.6 points and 8.0 assists per game, both
team-highs.

He also had back problems during the 2002-03 campaign, missing eight games
with spasms.
