New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis suffered a right knee bruise in a loss to the Los Angeles Clippers that could hamper him moving forward this season. The Pelicans (4-12) had a three-game win streak snapped 111-90 on Friday but the main concern was the status of Davis, who had 17 points and six rebounds for New Orleans before leaving with 2:48 remaining in the third quarter. With the Clippers leading 80-63, Los Angeles star Chris Paul moved into Davis to draw a foul as the two raced upcourt.

By Tony Jimenez LONDON (Reuters) - Six-times major winner Nick Faldo believes there could be as many as six rookies in the side when Europe attempt to retain the Ryder Cup at Hazeltine, Minnesota next year. The visitors will be trying to win the biennial team event for the fourth straight edition, a run stretching back to the 2008 defeat when Faldo was outgunned by rival captain Paul Azinger at Valhalla. "I think America could be the favorites this time because the backbone of their team will be similar to the last one," Faldo told Reuters in an interview.
