New Orleans Pelicans All-Star forward Anthony Davis, who played only the first five minutes before departing with a left knee injury in Tuesday night's game, is considered day-to-day
Coach Alvin Gentry said after the Pelicans' 103-93 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers that an MRI on Davis' left knee came back negative.
Davis, 24, appeared to tweak the knee in the first quarter and may have aggravated it while battling for a long rebound. He did not return after exiting the game.
"I don't know a whole lot. Our trainers just said the MRI came back negative. I'm sure we'll know more (Wednesday)," Gentry said after the game.
Davis was not walking with a noticeable limp when he left the arena, according to ESPN.
Teammate DeMarcus Cousins had 39 points and 13 rebounds in carrying the Pelicans (1-3) with Davis out of the game.
"At halftime I was hoping AD was going to come back out there," Cousins told reporters. "That didn't happen. I had to step up to the plate, and that's what I tried to do."
The 6-foot-10, 253-pound Davis is averaging 24.3 points and 12.8 rebounds in four games this season. He had two points and one rebound before leaving Tuesday's game.
