Anthony Davis will be out at least four weeks after an MRI showed that the Los Angeles Lakers star has a mid-foot sprain, the team announced Thursday.

Davis suffered the injury in the team’s 106-101 win against the Utah Jazz on Wednesday.

He underwent X-rays at Arena that revealed no fracture, according to the team, but an MRI on Thursday revealed the mid-foot sprain.

The Lakers said team doctors will re-evaluate the star big man in four weeks.

Davis was hurt when he went airborne to catch a lob pass from Malik Monk and came down on Rudy Gobert‘s heel in the second quarter. Davis’ ankle turned outward and he fell to the floor, clutching his lower right leg in pain.

Lakers star LeBron James said Davis left the arena on crutches, and sources told ESPN’s Dave McMenamin at the time that Davis experienced significant swelling in the ankle immediately following the injury.

It marks another tough injury break for Davis, who already had missed 17 games straight from late December to late January with a sprained MCL in his left knee.

The Lakers entered Thursday ninth in the Western Conference at 27-31, six games behind the Denver Nuggets, who are No. 6 — the spot they would have to capture to avoid the play-in tournament. L.A. is four games ahead of the No. 11 New Orleans Pelicans, whom they’ll have to stave off to guarantee at least the play-in spot.
