New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis injured his left shoulder in Thursday night's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. That left the 25-year-old star's status up in the air for this weekend's All-Star Game.

Considering Davis will be a major trade target this summer and can be a free agent in 2020, his health is pretty important. Fortunately, he only suffered a mild contusion of his shoulder, per reports.

According to the New York Times' Marc Stein, Davis plans on giving it a go in tonight's showcase. He just has to see how he feels first.

Stein reports that Davis will test his shoulder in warmups and then make a decision.

Davis is averaging 28.1 points, 12.9 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game this season. All of those averages are career-highs.

This is Davis' sixth consecutive All-Star Game selection. The former Kentucky star has been the subject of constant trade rumors since he notified the Pelicans that he will not sign an extension with them and prefers to be traded.

The 2019 NBA All-Star Game is set to tip off at 8 p.m. ET tonight from Charlotte. It will be Team LeBron (Davis' squad) against Team Steph.

TNT will broadcast the action.
