Anthony Davis fined $25K following first career ejection

New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry said Davis will undergo an MRI in Portland and will likely not play against the Trail Blazers on Saturday.

Davis received his second technical foul of the game and was subsequently ejected with 4:11 remaining in the second quarter of the Pelicans' 120-102 loss to Minnesota in New Orleans.

Anthony Davis suffered a nasty looking groin injury on Friday night.

The man is believed to be the father of one of the murder victims at the centre of the trial. Images from the scene showed blood splattered on the floor of the destroyed courtroom.

It's never great when a player like Davis is on the sidelines.

In the immediate aftermath of Davis' injury the Jazz went on a 10-0 run, with New Orleans going more than four minutes without a point before a Darius Miller three ended the scoring drought. He was taken to the locker room on a wheelchair, according to several sources. While there was no apparent hard contact during the play, he had to be helped off the court.

The four-time All-Star has been somewhat injury plagued throughout his National Basketball Association career, though he played in a career-high 75 games just last season. In the first meeting with the Blazers on October 24, Davis played five minutes before leaving with a left knee injury.
