Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis suffered a recurrence of his Achilles injury as his side lost 122-105 to the Denver Nuggets.

Davis, who missed two games last week with the same problem, was forced out late in the second quarter after a foul by Nikola Jokic.

The 27-year-old has some swelling in his right Achilles and will have a MRI scan on Monday.

He left the game after scoring 15 points in 14 minutes.
