Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis played the first half of Sunday's 122-105 loss to the Denver Nuggets but did not return for the second half.
According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Davis sat out after aggravating tendinosis in his right Achilles, causing swelling.

Davis missed two games earlier in the week because of the injury. The Lakers said he has a right Achilles strain, but will undergo an MRI on Monday to see if the damage is worse than they think.
Before exiting Sunday's game, Davis notched 15 points, four rebounds and one assist.
Lakers head coach Frank Vogel admitted after the contest that he's hoping Davis only suffered a minor setback, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin. It's unclear if the 27-year-old will return to the lineup against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday or if he'll remain out.
