Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis will be out for an indefinite period of time due to a stress injury to his right foot, the team announced on Friday. No specific information was provided about the type of stress injury. A stress fracture is a four-to-six-week recovery time.
Davis suffered the injury last Friday against the Denver Nuggets. The Lakers initially called it a right foot issue and reports said he would be out for at least one month. An official diagnosis was not made as L.A. seeked second and third opinions to determine the severity of his injury.
After extensive consultation with Lakers team physicians and outside specialists, it has been determined that Anthony Davis has a stress injury in his right foot. Davis will be out indefinitely. Further updates will be provided when appropriate.
