Los Angeles Lakers star big man Anthony Davis is expected to miss at least one month after suffering a right foot injury, sources told The Atheltic's Shams Charania.

The Lakers are bracing for Davis to be out indefinitely, Charania adds. Davis exited Friday's win against the Denver Nuggets during the first quarter after colliding with reigning MVP Nikola Jokic.

Davis is undergoing evaluations with a specialist, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Dave McMenamin. L.A. previously ruled Davis out for Sunday's contest against the Washington Wizards.

The 28-year-old is having a resurgent season for the Lakers, averaging 27.4 points, 12.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 2.1 blocks, and 1.3 steals in 33.4 minutes per game.

Injuries have hampered Davis throughout the last two seasons. Davis appeared in only 76 contests over the previous two campaigns due to calf, heel, MCL, and ankle ailments.

Los Angeles sits 12th in the Western Conference with a 12-16 record after starting the season 2-12.
