LOS ANGELES — Anthony Davis left the Los Angeles Lakers‘ game Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz after badly rolling his right ankle during the second quarter. The Lakers announced that Davis has a right ankle sprain, but that X-rays came back negative. He will be re-evaluated after the All-Star break.
