Hornets' Davis To Have MRI


Baron Davis, the third pick in the NBA draft, will undergo an MRI on his left knee on Monday.

Davis injured the knee last Friday in a game against Boston, but it wasn't enough to keep him out of Sunday's game. He played 19 minutes and scored seven points. He said the knee locked up on him twice.

"I've never had it before. It's not the ACL or anything. Just something nagging," he said.

The rookie point guard tore his ACL in his freshman year in college. Many teams were hesitant to draft him, but the Hornets choose him despite concerns about his knee.

"If it does show a tear we'll have to make a decision," Charlotte coach Paul Silas said. "He didn't look to bad, but if we don't have Baron we have to find a point guard."
