Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis will be sidelined for at least two-to-three weeks due to a calf strain, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

However, the Lakers will exercise caution when planning Davis' return, and the forward may sit until after the March 5-10 All-Star break, Wojnarowski reports. That would elongate his absence to three-to-four weeks.

Davis left Sunday's game against the Denver Nuggets after bumping legs with center Nikola Jokic. The impact re-aggravated tendinosis near his right Achilles, Wojnarowski reported.

An MRI on Monday reportedly confirmed the re-aggravation and the calf strain.

Los Angeles didn't confirm the findings or a timeline for Davis' recovery, though the team did announce the MRI results "showed no rupture of the right Achilles tendon."

Davis missed two games against the Oklahoma City Thunder last week due to the tendinosis, but he returned Friday against the Memphis Grizzlies. He played just under 35 minutes in that contest, scoring 35 points and recording nine rebounds. He then played just 14 minutes against Denver before colliding with Jokic and leaving the game before halftime.

The 27-year-old big man is registering 22.5 points, 8.4 rebounds, three assists, 1.8 blocks, and 1.3 steals per game in his second season with the Lakers.
