The New Orleans Pelicans revealed on Thursday that franchise star Anthony Davis had undergone successful knee surgery. 

It was announced earlier in the week that the 23-year-old would not play for the rest of the season as he prepared for operations to his knee and shoulder. 

However, the team announced that the three-time All-Star would not require an operation on his shoulder after consultation from a specialist. 

It had been reported that Davis had been playing through a torn labrum for the best part of three years, but the damage was not severe enough to require action.

His knee problem was reportedly the early signs of a stress fracture of his kneecap. 


Despite his issues, it was another strong personal season for Davis as the New Orleans Pelicans struggle at the wrong end of the Western Conference. 

During his 61 games this season, he averaged 24.3 points, 10.3 rebounds and two blocks per 35.5 minutes of action. 

The Pelicans' season has been over for some time and Davis' surgery gives him a good chance of returning for the beginning of next season. 

However, his hopes of representing the United States at the 2016 Olympics are over. Having played a role in 2012, it will be a big blow for The Brow.
