Late in the second quarter of Friday night's match up featuring Portland Trail Blazer and the New Orleans Pelicans, Anthony Davis appeared to injure his left knee.

In what looked to be an innocuous play, Davis set a screen on the left hand side of the floor for Jrue Holiday. CJ McCollum anticipated and jumped out above the pick, causing Holiday to pull up and run into Davis and his out-stretched left leg.

Davis was substituted with 51.2 seconds left in the second quarter and did not come out for the start of the second half. He left the game with 19 points on 8/18 shooting.

Per New Orleans Sideline Reporter Jennifer Hale, Davis is doubtful to return to Friday night's game due to a left knee injury.

Also, New Orleans' training staff reports that they don't feel the injury came from a single play.
