Anthony Davis Injury: Kentucky Big Man Injures Knee, But Returns To Game Vs. Baylor

The Kentucky Wildcats received a big scare when he landed awkwardly after colliding with Baylor's Perry Jones III on a drive in the second half against the Bears. Davis collapsed on the ground holding his knee but was eventually helped up and limped to the bench.

While on the bench, Kentucky trainers looked at his knee and eventually offered that the likely No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft was ok.

"he's ok, we're just going to do some further evaluation"

Davis checked back into the game soon after with a slight limp but asked out of the game after a couple of trips up and down the court. Obviously any significant injury to Davis would have a big effect on the Wildcats' chances in the remainder of the tournament.
