(WVUE) -

The Pelicans' preseason tour of China wrapped up Wednesday with a 116-104 loss to the Rockets but it is Anthony Davis' sprained right ankle in the first quarter that will serve as a blow to the team's hopes of starting the season fast on Oct. 26 against the Nuggets.

Davis stepped on Houston center Nene's foot with the Pelicans trailing 8-5 in the early goings and went to the floor immediately. After leaving the game, he attempted to re-enter but soon exited for the locker room with just two points on 1-of-5 shooting in 6:52 of action

After the Pels return home from China, they have preseason games at Atlanta and at Orlando before opening the season at home on the last Wednesday of October.
