Davis did not return to the game.
Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said afterward that Davis will undergo an MRI exam and was “very unlikely” to play Saturday against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Davis was injured as he battled for a rebound with Utah’s Derrick Favors underneath the basket with 11:35 left in the game. He remained down for several moments as trainers examined him and could not put any weight on his left leg as he was helped off the court.
Davis was immediately placed in a wheelchair and taken to the locker room.
At the time of the injury, Davis had 19 points and 10 rebounds, and the Pelicans led 84-80.
