Los Angeles Lakers center Anthony Davis, who had been playing his most dominant basketball in years, is expected to be sidelined for multiple weeks with a right foot injury, sources told ESPN on Sunday.

Davis underwent an MRI on Saturday after leaving Friday night’s victory over the Denver Nuggets and was still undergoing more evaluation Sunday with a specialist, sources said.

He had appeared to tweak his right foot after his lower leg collided with Nikola Jokic‘s leg while the two were in midair near the basket in the first quarter Friday. Davis did not return to the game after halftime.

Davis had previously been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Washington Wizards.

An extended absence for Davis could have a potentially devastating impact on the Lakers’ postseason chances. Davis is averaging 27.4 points on a career-best 59.3% shooting, 12.1 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game.

After a 2-12 start to the season, the Lakers are 12-16 and 1.5 games out of the final play-in spot in the Western Conference.
