Anthony Davis will be in Las Vegas this weekend for Team USA's training camp, despite an ankle injury, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. A source told Wojnarowski that “the injury isn't as bad as originally thought,” and that Davis “really wants to play.” How much Davis will be able to do at the camp is not known. Davis, the No. 1 pick in last week's NBA Draft by the New Orleans Hornets, suffered the ankle injury during a workout with the Hornets.
