The 27-year-old missed two games earlier this month due to a sore Achilles and it's "extremely unlikely" Davis returns to the court till after the All-Star break, which ends March 10 (E.T.).
"It's a part of the game, it's more so frustrating that I'm not able to go out there and play," Davis said after the loss to the Nuggets. "... I don't want to mess around with this type of injury."
Davis is averaging 22.5 points and 8.4 rebounds per game this season, with the Lakers sitting second in the Western Conference with a 21-7 record. They are 4-1 this season in five games without their All-Star big man.
