Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis left Sunday’s night game at Denver with a right Achilles injury and did not return.

Davis, who missed two games last week due to tendonosis on the same Achilles, bumped legs with Nuggets center Nikola Jokic with 2:39 left in the second quarter. He stayed in the game to make two free throws and then walked gingerly to the locker room.
