MIAMI — The New Orleans Pelicans suffered two key injuries in the first half of their 105-91 win in Miami on Saturday night when center Anthony Davis reaggravated his troublesome right shoulder and forward Ryan Anderson injured his right knee.

Both players will have MRIs on Sunday.

Davis exited the game with 3:07 remaining in the first quarter after he made contact with Miami center Hassan Whiteside on a shot.

After getting injured, Davis grimaced and walked off the court while grabbing his shoulder. After an evaluation and X-rays, the Pelicans announced that he would not return.

Davis initially injured the shoulder against the Chicago Bulls on Feb. 7 and missed two games. He also sat out last weekend’s NBA All-Star Game, although he made the trip to New York.

Davis entered Saturday night’s game fourth in the NBA in scoring at 24.3 points per game. Before he was hurt, Davis scored six points on 2 of 8 shooting from the field.

In addition to Davis, the Pelicans lost forward Ryan Anderson with 9:41 left in the second quarter when Heat guard Mario Chalmers came down on his right ankle. Anderson finished with four points.

Anderson has been limited to 23 games this season. On Friday, he played 27 minutes in a loss at Orlando after missing two games with an elbow injury.
