Davis had the wrist taped during pregame warmups. Guard Kendrick Nunn is out with a right knee bone bruise. Guard Malik Monk was listed as probable after missing one game with soreness in his left groin. Atlanta’s Trae Young and De’Andre Hunter are questionable with hip and ankle injuries, respectively.
