Davis' season ends at 61 games, joining the likes of Quincy Pondexter, Tyreke Evans, and Eric Gordon on the long list of injured players in New Orleans this season. Pelican players have missed a combined 229 games this season due to injuries, forcing them to lead the league with 33 different starting lineup combinations.
These health issues are the center of why New Orleans, who was hopeful to make a run at another playoff spot this season, sits at 25-43 on the year.
Davis did play long enough to be voted on to one of the end-of-the-season All-NBA teams, earning him $24 million extra for the maximum extension he signed last off-season. He finished the 2015-16 campaign with an average of 24.3 points, 10.3 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks per game.
Despite the All-Star's productive numbers, he has struggled to stay healthy in New Orleans, missing 14 or more games in each of his previous three seasons. The number one overall pick in 2012 has still managed to average at least 20 points in each of those seasons, and will take the off-season to get ready to come back with those same numbers next season.
