UPDATE: The Lakers will not have Davis for at least four weeks after he was diagnosed with a mid-foot sprain in his right foot. AD was injured on Wednesday night and luckily one of those weeks will be the All-Star Break, so really Davis will miss at least three weeks of action. The Lakers’ next game is Friday, Feb. 25 against the Los Angeles Clippers.

UPDATE: The Lakers retweeted a Mike Trudell tweet in which he said, “Anthony Davis rolled his right ankle pretty badly, landing on Rudy Gobert’s foot after jumping high in the air.” He’s getting x-rays on the ankle, per Woj.

UPDATE: Davis looks to be in pretty rough shape after the injury. Here’s some video of him being helped back to the locker room and it’s clear he is in significant pain.

Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis suffered a lower leg injury on Wednesday against the Utah Jazz. He went up for a rebound and came down awkwardly and appeared to badly roll his right ankle. You can watch the play below. He was subsequently helped off the court by teammates and was unable to put weight on his right foot, per Chris Haynes.

Davis missed five weeks across December and January after an MCL sprain, and then missed a game with wrist soreness. He opened February with three straight double-doubles. Prior to the injury on Wednesday against the Jazz, he had scored 17 points in 17 minutes of action.
