Despite an ankle injury, New Orleans Hornets forward Anthony Davis will head to Team USA's Las Vegas camp this week, according to Yahoo! Sport's Adrian Wojnarowski. After suffering the injury on Monday, initial reports had Davis missing the camp, but later news backed off on that as future evaluation of his ankle was needed.
Wojnarowski reports that the ankle injury is less severe than originally thought. Additionally, with Lamar Odom passing on Team USA camp, Davis has been granted the time he needs to recover from the injury, which is expected to take a week to 10 days.
Davis was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft on June 28. Adding a gold medal with Team USA before the start of his rookie season would certainly be a great addition to his already prodigious list of accomplishments in 2012.
