What happened to Hill is not dissimilar to what happened to Davis. Hill injured his ankle the week before the 2000 playoffs and rather than resting and healing Hill played through it and made it worse in Game 2 of the first round. He had surgery in the offseason and again that December. It was the beginning of the end for Hill, who had a career that was promising. The Hornets however, are doing the right thing by making Davis rest.
Davis originally injured his ankle while working out with Team USA over the summer, but says this current injury is not related to that one.
In the first six games of the season Davis had put up good numbers, averaging 16 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 2.2 blocks per game. Those would be great numbers for a veteran player, showing Davis is figuring out professional basketball quickly. He has averaged just 28.3 minutes a game too, giving a lot of value to the time he's playing. Davis is also on fire with 49.3% shooting from the field and 83.9% shooting from the free throw line.
The most telling sign that the Hornets are missing Davis is that they have lost all six games he has missed, putting them in last place in the Southwest Division. It guarantees that he will get a lot of playing time when he returns.
