So what really happened? I'm confused how can someone be carried off be ok minutes later? Is this groin or knee? Conflicting reports

Likely just shock, but he did appear to still be in pain after he came back. Hopefully its a day rest type of thing.

his hip/left groin collided with Faried who got the steal on an Alley-oop attempt in the air, and he landed bad on his left leg.

Anthony Davis (groin) has a Grade 1 abductor strain and will be listed as day-to-day.

Though not great news, this is much better than the original reaction when Davis went down Wednesday night. We'll consider him questionable for Friday's game against the Clippers, while Ryan Anderson, Alexis Ajinca, and Omer Asik would stand to benefit if Davis is unable to play.
Symptoms
  1. A mild (Grade 1) groin strain may not be very painful and may not limit mild or moderate physical activity.

Grade 1 symptoms usually disappear within a week

Got this information from a creditable website, rest it out a week AD and come back strong next week.

That's the price you have to pay for 1.6 steals and 2.9 blocks a game. Hopefully he will learn that it's not really worth it. I'll gladly take 1.2 steals and 2.5 blocks in 80 games a year rather than 2 steals 3 blocks in 60 games.

Yeah I know, his style in always using his athleticism and jumping high for everything is very risky. Same thing with Westbrook you always cringe when you see them fly so high just to get rebounds or blk shots or alley-oops.

Anthony Davis (groin) said that he is unsure if he will suit up for Friday's game against the Clippers.

Davis remains questionable for Friday's game, but purely speculating, it would seem he's closer to doubtful than questionable. We'll continue to monitor his status closely, but if he's forced to sit, Ryan Anderson, Alexis Ajinca, and Omer Asik will all likely see extended minutes for the Pelicans.
I doubt he plays tonight, as much as I love AD he's becoming kind of injury prone.

that was a solid steal though without fouling, watched the replay it didn't look in anyway intentional its just a collision of 2 big guys in the air.

Wow. That was insane. For anyone that missed it, I urge you to watch the highlights. What an incredible game by both teams, and what a great game and finish for AD. He just double clutched a 3 in between two defenders while in the air. I didn't know that was even possible.
