Los Angeles Lakers superstar Anthony Davis exited Wednesday night’s game against the Utah Jazz with an ankle injury that looked bad. Davis went down in serious pain with three minutes left in the second quarter, and he was unable to put any weight on the ankle. He had to be carried off the floor (and it continued that way in the tunnel).

The good news is that x-rays on the ankle were negative.

But that could be a significant sprain, and if so, that may sideline Davis for several weeks. Davis will have an MRI on Thursday.

So, this really sucks for AD, and it’s another brutal moment in the Lakers’ extremely disappointing season.

The Lakers did make a late comeback — led by LeBron James’ 33 points — to beat a very good Jazz team 106-101, at least. But Los Angeles is 27-31 on the season, and now they’re likely to be without one of the best basketball players on the planet for a while.

Update: An MRI revealed a mid-foot sprain for Davis, and he will be re-evaluated in four weeks.
