The Lakers announced that Anthony Davis suffered a mid-foot sprain and will be out for at least a month before he’s evaluated.

This latest injury for the Brow continues a trend of leg injuries that started to plague him since last year. After leading the Lakers to a championship in 2020, Davis has played just 73 games out of a possible 130 due to various injuries. AD has averaged 24.1 points, 9.1 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 2.1 blocks, playing 35.1 minutes per game since joining the Lakers.
The saving grace for the Lakers is that Davis will be missing at least one week while everyone is resting during the All-Star break. From there, the Lakers will be missing Davis for 11 of their next 24 games. There’s still hope around the franchise that having a healthy team will help turn the franchise around, and they’ll play to the championship standard they set in the preseason.
For now, the Lakeshow will look to LeBron James to keep them afloat while Davis recovers. The Washed King scored 33 points, eight boards, six dimes, and two steals in 40 minutes in a 106-101 dub over the Jazz, scoring 15 in the fourth quarter after Davis went down.
When the Lakers return from the break, they will play the Clippers.
