NBA The Brow hasn’t ruptured his Achilles
The Los Angeles Lakers can breathe a sigh of relief with the news that All-Star big Anthony Davis‘ Achilles injury is not as bad as first feared.
The 27-year-old underwent a scan on Monday after only managing 14 minutes against the Denver Nuggets the previous night and leaving the court nursing his right Achilles.
It has been confirmed that Davis, in fact, has a calf strain, which, although it will keep him out for up to three weeks, is a relative relief compared to the severity of an Achilles problems.
While he has aggravated a tendonitis in his Achilles, there is no tear or structural damage to the Achilles tendon itself.
The Lakers are likely to take a cautious approach to Davis‘ recovery and it we shouldn’t expect to see him on court before the All-Star break in early March.
Davis is the team’s top scorer after LeBron James, averaging 22.5 points per game, along with 8.4 rebounds and three assists.
