Knicks G Davis leaves game on stretcher

New York Knicks guard Baron Davis left Sunday's Game 4 Eastern Conference quarterfinal matchup with the Miami Heat with a dislocated right patella.

Davis left the game with 5:15 remaining in the third quarter when he suffered the injury while attempting to drive to the basket.

Davis remained on the floor in agony and a stretcher was brought on to escort him to the locker room.

The 33-year-old guard had assumed a starting role for the Knicks in the playoffs after point guard Jeremy Lin went down with a left knee injury in late March.

The Knicks won the game, 89-87, to avoid the sweep and Game 5 is slated for Wednesday in Miami.
