DETROIT (AP) — All-Star center Anthony Davis was pulled from the New Orleans Pelicans’ game Sunday against the Detroit Pistons with a right hip injury but returned in the second half.

The Pelicans announced after the first quarter that his return was questionable, but Davis checked back into the game during the third quarter.

Davis collided with teammate Tim Frazier and Pistons forward Blake Griffin in the first quarter. All three players ended up on the floor. Griffin hurt his right knee but walked off the injury during the ensuing timeout, and Frazier was uninjured.

Davis received treatment on the bench and left for the locker room with members of the training staff.
