ATLANTA (AP) Pelicans forward Anthony Davis was questionable to return after sustaining a right knee contusion late in the first quarter Tuesday night.

Davis, who began the game leading the league with a 31.7 scoring average, banged his leg against a chair while chasing the ball out of bounds. New Orleans led the Atlanta Hawks 34-14 after the first.

A three-time All-Star in each of his three NBA seasons, Davis ranks sixth with an 11.3 rebounding average.
