Davis will undergo an MRI Saturday, and he is not expected to play in the team's game against Portland according to Scott Kushner of the New Orleans Advocate.

New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis was fined $25,000 by the NBA for two technical fouls during Wednesday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, resulting in the first ejection of his professional basketball career.

Then, Friday night, when the New Orleans Pelicans were taking on the Utah Jazz, Davis went down with a groin injury and had to be helped to the locker room.

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

Davis, a four-time All-Star now in his sixth National Basketball Association season, had never been ejected from a game previously.

None of those issues proved all that serious, but the accumulation of wear and tear after failing to suit up in at least 70 games during four of his first five National Basketball Association reasons hasn't been particularly encouraging. In the end, New Orleans (11-11) suffered a third straight loss. In the four seasons prior to the 2016-17 campaign, Davis played in no more than 68 games in any single season due to various injuries.
