Anthony Davis is expected to miss at least two games after suffering a lower back injury on a fall during the Los Angeles Lakers’ 117-87 win over the New York Knicks on Tuesday night.

Davis went up for a block attempt late in the third quarter and landed hard on his back:

Davis was able to walk it off and went into the locker room for X-rays, which were negative. ESPN’s Dave McMenamin says Davis will undergo an MRI on Wednesday and is expected to miss the Lakers’ upcoming road trip in Dallas and Oklahoma City.

Davis had five points, six rebounds, five assists, three steals and two blocks in 28 minutes prior to getting hurt. He has been great this season for the 30-7 Lakers. Head coach Frank Vogel talked about what Davis means to the team.
