Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez left Thursday's game against the Reds with a bruised right knee after fouling a pitch off his leg in the third inning.
Yasiel Puig also left the game after pulling up when he beat out an infield single in the ninth inning.
Puig left a game last week in Oakland with tightness in his right hamstring. He missed 38 games earlier this season with a strained left hamstring.
Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said removing Gonzalez was a precautionary measure. Gonzalez said "absolutely, 100 percent" when was asked if he will return to the lineup Friday night against the Cubs.
