Anthony Davis (knee) scored 36 points (12-18 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 12-15 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, three blocks and two steals in 44 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Jazz.
If he was hindered at all by the knee contusion that took him out of Friday's game, he certainly didn't show it. Davis now has a double-double in each of the last five games he's been able to finish, averaging a monstrous 30.0 points, 15.2 boards, 3.0 blocks and 1.4 steals in those contests.
Anthony Davis (knee) will play in Saturday's game against the Jazz, Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Davis was listed as probable for the contest earlier in the day, so the New Orleans Pelicans don't appear to be too concerned about their star forward's injury.

Davis bumped knees with Chris Paul in the open court as Paul slowed down in front of him in an attempt to draw a foul. He immediately began hopping on one leg and was in obvious pain.

Obviously, any type of knee injury is immediate cause for concern, and this specific case did not look good based on Davis' reaction.
