Hornets’ Davis placed on injured list

New Orleans, LA (Sports Network) – New Orleans Hornets All-Star guard Baron
Davis was placed on the injured list Friday.

Davis has missed the last six games, including Friday’s contest against
Philadelphia, and has not played since January 16 at Toronto. He injured his
right Achilles tendon against the Raptors.

In 17 games this season, Davis is averaging 19.7 points and 7.3 assists. Davis
was also on the injured list earlier in the season and missed 19 games with a
lower back problem.

The Hornets signed guard Junior Harrington to a 10-day contract to fill the
roster spot. Harrington, who was waived last week, averaged 6.4 points and 2.4
assists in 23 games for the Hornets earlier this season.
