Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis left Friday’s 110-92 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves after injuring his left knee.

Davis limped off the court and walked slowly to the locker room shortly after sustaining the injury. He had nine points in 20 minutes when he went down.

The injury happened after LeBron James passed the ball to Davis near the left elbow. Timberwolves defender Jaden McDaniels turned toward Davis, but he lost his balance and tumbled into Davis’ knee as his leg was planted.

Earlier in the game, Davis left with an ankle injury but eventually returned.

Davis entered Friday averaging 23.8 points and 10.2 rebounds in 26 games.

The Lakers were seeking their season-high fourth straight win.
