Davis appears to have tweaked his knee when setting a screen in the first quarter against the Portland Trail Blazers.

The extent of Davis' knee injury was not immediately clear, but the All-Star forward underwent an MRI before the end of the second quarter, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted Tuesday.

New Orleans later said Davis would not return.? Davis slowly ran down court after the mild collision with Lillard but left the game during the Pelicans' ensuing possession.?

Davis has had injuries with his left knee before, in his 2012-13 rookie season and the 2015-16 season. Davis was able to walk off the floor on his own, though he was limping.

Davis has dealt with multiple injuries throughout his career.

He joined Kevin Garnett as the only players in the past 40 years to record more than 25 points and 15 rebounds in the first three games of a season. Last season was the first time he played more than 68 games in a season.
