Lakers’ Davis out 4 weeks with MCL sprain

Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis will miss approximately four weeks with an MCL sprain in his left knee before being re-evaluated, the team announced on Saturday.

Davis suffered the injury in the third quarter of Friday’s loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves, when Wolves forward Jaden McDaniels lost his balance and tumbled into Davis’ left knee.

Davis attempted to limp off the court to the Lakers’ locker room without any assistance, but ESPN’s broadcast cameras caught Davis collapsing to the ground in pain when making his way through the tunnel.

After missing 36 of the Lakers’ 72 games last season because of various injuries, Davis has been healthier this season, having played in all but three games. He did, however, recently miss back-to-back games due to left knee soreness.

Davis, 28, is averaging 23.3 points, 9.9 rebounds and 2 blocks per game this season.
