The Celtics’ 115-103 victory over the Phoenix Suns was dampened slightly when Glen Davis left the floor late in the fourth quarter after a game-sealing dunk. He didn’t land awkwardly when landing, he said after the game that his left knee had been bothering him for weeks and was diagnosed with a strained patella tendon.

Davis will undergo an MRI tomorrow and his status for Friday’s game against the Golden State Warriors is uncertain. Davis did not appear concerned after the game.

“I guess I’m not the only one concerned,” he said. “I’ll be all right. I’ve been dealing with the pain all season.”

He finished with 14 points and eight rebounds in 26 minutes.
