Anthony Davis is out indefinitely with a stress injury to his right foot, the Los Angeles Lakers confirmed on Friday.
The Lakers gave no clarity on the specific nature of Davis’ injury or a timeline for his return, saying only that updates “will be provided as appropriate.”
Davis will miss his fourth straight game on Friday night when the Lakers host the Charlotte Hornets (10:30 p.m. ET). He injured himself in a win against Denver last week when he landed awkwardly under the basket.
Davis has missed more than half of Los Angeles’ games due to various injuries over the past two seasons, and the star’s big man’s recent serious injury is a major blow to the Lakers’ hopes of competing.
Los Angeles had won 10 of 16 with Davis having been outstanding in the last 4 1/2 weeks prior to his current injury.
Davis is averaging 27.4 points and 12.1 rebounds this season, the best of his four seasons with the Lakers. He also contributes 2.6 assists and 2.1 blocks per game.
