Los Angeles Lakers superstar Anthony Davis underwent an MRI on Monday, revealing a calf strain that will keep him away from the NBA for at least two to three weeks.
Anthony Davis has been dealing with an exacerbation in recent weeks. That injury was compounded during Sunday’s game against the Denver Nuggets.
Davis played just over 14 minutes before retiring to the locker room. The Lakers called the injury a strain, but clarified that Anthony Davis will undergo further testing on Monday. The Lakers will likely proceed with great caution in their handling of Davis’ injury.
Needless to say, the 27-year-old is critical to the team’s chances of a repeat NBA champion. Anthony Davis is averaging 22.5 points, 8.4 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.8 blocks and 1.3 steals in 23 games this season.
The Lakers don’t want to rush Davis back into action and risk re-injury, especially after he signed a five-year, $ 190 million deal with the Lakers last NBA offseason.(GG) (Fielding)
