The news is just the latest injury woe to befall the Lakers, who continue to struggle this season and are currently just trying to reach the postseason.
Davis has had multiple injuries in each of the last two seasons. During the 2020-21 campaign, he missed most of the second half of the season, and the Lakers ended up making a quick playoff exit.
While the Lakers were able to get past the Jazz on Wednesday night, it was only their third win in their last 10 games. At 27-31 on the season, the Lakers’ playoff hopes could be severely damaged if they’re not able to fill the hole left by Davis’ absence.
