Update (10:00pm PT): Good news for the Pelicans: Jennifer Hale reports that Davis’ MRI came back negative.

Anthony Davis suddenly left Tuesday’s game against the Blazers, and received an MRI on his left knee. Originally believed to be due to a collision with Damian Lillard, NBC Sports Northwest announcer Kevin Calabro informed viewers that, “[Davis] apparently tweaked the knee in pregame, and said that he would give it a go”. A replay showed that Davis’ knee/ankle seemed to buckle a bit while jostling with Moe Harkless, and he was taken out of the game soon after.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski has reported that Davis is undergoing an MRI and will not return.

The result of the MRI has not been announced as of this writing. We will update this story as more information becomes available.
