The LA Lakers star, Anthony Davis, might be out for a month after he suffered an MCL sprain in his left knee.

Anthony Davis had to leave the game against the Timberwolves in the third quarter after his left knee was rolled up on by Jaden McDaniels. 

Two of them tripped on the floor while Davis was left in pain.

Anthony Davis walked off the basketball court and went straight towards the locker room. While going to the locker room, he collapsed in pain in the tunnel.

AD finished the game with 9 points and 1 rebound in the 20 minutes he played, where the Laker’s eventually lost 110-92, at the Target Center.

The Reports Do Not Look Good For Anthony Davis

Anthony Davis had to perform an MRI scan in Chicago on Saturday, which had revealed the MCL sprain.

With his four-week timeline, Davis will likely miss at least 14 games. The Lakers are set to host the Indiana Pacers on January 19, which is just more than a month away. The Lakers said he will be evaluated again after four weeks, which will give a clearer timeline for his return.

Davis has averaged 23.3 points and 9.9 rebounds per game this season, his third in Los Angeles. The Lakers currently have a 16-14 record and had won three straight before Friday’s loss in Minneapolis.

Anthony Davis, speaking to reporters for the first time since his knee injury in MIN: “I mean, mentally, I’m fine. I’m in good spirits, just being around the team. Obviously avoided a major injury, which has kind of got my spirits back up because I just didn’t know.”
