    BEIJING — New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis has left Wednesday's preseason game against the Houston Rockets after hurting his right ankle.

    Davis fell to the court early in the first quarter of Wednesday's game in Beijing, the last of the NBA's two exhibitions in China. He re-entered the game briefly, but soon walked to the locker room. The team said he would not return.

    Davis, the first overall pick of the 2012 NBA Draft, is a three-time All-Star who averaged 24.3 points and 10.3 rebounds per game last season.

    Pelicans guard E'Twaun Moore also left the game in the first half with a right heel injury and was not expected to return.
