New York Knicks guard Baron Davis injured his right knee during the Game 4 victory over the Miami Heat on Sunday and had to be taken off the floor in a cart.
The injury was diagnosed a dislocated patella (knee cap), ESPN's Lisa Salters reported. Davis is scheduled to be examined further on Monday to determine whether there is any structural damage.
Davis, who was in the starting lineup, had two points and two assists in 25 minutes before the injury.
The probable loss of Davis for Game 5 adds to the Knicks' backcourt problems. Iman Shumpert tore his ACL in Game 1 of the Miami series, and Jeremy Lin has been out since March 24 with a knee injury.
Game 5 is Wednesday night in Miami.
Lin is at the five-week mark since he had arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. He is currently a week shy of the anticipated timeframe for his return. Lin has been practicing and playing full-court scrimmages, so might he be ready to return for Game 5?
"I can't really answer that," coach Mike Woodson said. "He'll get back into the gym (Monday) and talk to doctors about where he is physically and then we'll make some decisions before we get on the plane to head to Miami."
