What is Anthony Davis’ injury?
During the second quarter of the Lakers’ game against the Jazz on Wednesday, Feb. 16, Davis suffered a devastating ankle injury and had to be carried off of the court.
The star forward jumped up to catch a lob and came down straight onto Rudy Gobert’s heel, turning his ankle in a gruesome direction (disclaimer: it’s ugly). Davis had to be carried off the floor, unable to put any pressure on his injured right ankle.
According to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, Davis received X-Rays and they came back negative. McMenamin added that there was no timetable for his recovery and he would be re-evaluated at the All-Star break.
