Sources had told ESPN earlier this week that Davis would be re-evaluated in two to three weeks after suffering a calf strain Sunday and would be unlikely to return to the lineup before the NBA’s March 5-10 All-Star break
A spokesperson for the Lakers said the new four-week time period is an estimation and includes the time it would be necessary for Davis to rehab and recover from the calf strain and tendinosis in his right Achilles, as well as ramp up in practices and workouts in order to return to game action.
Davis missed two games last week with tendinosis in his right Achilles and had to exit Sunday’s loss to the Denver Nuggets shortly before halftime after aggravating the injury.
An MRI on Monday revealed the calf strain and the tendinosis aggravation, a source told ESPN, but did not show a rupture of the right Achilles tendon.
ESPN’s Dave McMenamin contributed to this report.
