Some good news for the @PelicansNBA : the MRI on Anthony Davis' Left knee is negative.— Jennifer Hale (@JenHale504) October 25, 2017
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.
