The New Orleans Pelicans will allow Davis back into the lineup for the rest of the season, the team confirmed in a statement Thursday night.
In a statement Thursday night explaining the decision, general manager Dell Demps said, "A number of factors contributed to this decision. Ultimately, Anthony made it clear to us that he wants to play, and he gives our team the best opportunity to win games.
"Moreover, the Pelicans want to preserve the integrity of the game and align our organization with NBA policies. We believe Anthony playing upholds the values that are in the best interest of the NBA and its fans. We look forward to seeing Anthony in a Pelicans uniform again soon."
Davis has said he wants to return to the lineup and finish the season on the court.
AD has missed nine games with a finger injury but was cleared to practice this week.
