The injury is not expected to keep Davis out for any period of time moving forward. The Pelicans will travel to Atlanta to play the Hawks on Monday.
Davis, who weighted less than 230 last season, led the team in scoring (20.8) and rebounding (10.0). He also led the league in blocked shots with 2.8 per game. He is expected to participate in Team USA training camp and exhibition games this summer.
"When you see him it's like 'Wow, this kid is growing as we speak.' His shoulders, back, chest (are bigger), and it's all proportioned," coach Monty Williams said. "It's not like any fake. He is not going to be 245 or anything like that. But he has put on some good poundage. It looks pretty good."
Gordon will have to undergo athroscopic surgery on his knee next week, but is expected to be fully healthy in time for next season. He finished the season averaging 15.4 points, 3.3 assists and 1.2 steals per game in his 64 appearances.
Davis appeared in 67 games in his second season, after appearing in just 64 the year before. He took his game to another level when he was healthy, averaging 20.8 points, 10.0 rebounds, 2.8 blocks and 1.3 steals in 35.2 minutes per game.
Davis is day to day moving forward, with just four more chances to play this season, beginning Friday in Oklahoma City.
Davis was limited to eight points on 3 of 6 from the floor, and 2 of 4 from the charity stripe, also adding six rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks in 23 minutes. He is averaging just 9.0 points and 4.3 rebounds over his last three games.
