Davis scored eight points in 21 minutes for the Jazz before leaving the Sacramento showdown for good. Initial findings revealed a lower left leg contusion.
The 30-year-old forward-center joined Utah in the offseason after a solid one-season stint with the Brooklyn Nets, signing a two-year, $10 million deal with the team. He was expected to come off the bench and serve as backup for Rudy Gobert, especially after Derrick Favors was traded to the New Orleans Pelicans.
Davis has career averages of 6.5 points and 6.8 rebounds in his 10-year career so far. He put up 5.8 points and 8.6 rebounds per game for the Nets last season while also serving as a mentor for the young guys — particularly to Jarrett Allen.
In the six games he played in for the Jazz this season, he has only recorded 1.7 points and 5.2 rebounds in 12.2 minutes per contest. He is also shooting 40.0 percent from the field and 50.0 percent from the free-throw line.
