Davis suffered an aggravation on his right Achilles tendinosis during Sunday's game against Denver, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. He'll remain with the Lakers for their ongoing three-game road trip and undergo an MRI on Monday in Minneapolis.
Playing in his second straight game after missing a pair of contests early last week, Davis held up for nearly the entire first half, but late in the second quarter he appeared to bump legs with Nikola Jokic and came up limping. Davis remained in the game to shoot two free throws, but he was then removed and immediately walked gingerly to the locker room. He finished the night with 15 points (5-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds and one assist in 14 minutes. Monday's MRI should provide more information, but at this stage, it's likely Davis ends up missing multiple contests during the Lakers' four-game week. Kyle Kuzma, Dennis Schroder and Talen Horton-Tucker are among the players who could see more sizable roles alongside LeBron James if Davis misses time.
