Lakers star Anthony Davis out at least 1 month with MCL sprain from Timberwolves loss [Video]

Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis will be out for at least a month after suffering an MCL sprain in his left knee, the team said Saturday.

Davis left Friday night’s loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves in the third quarter after his knee was rolled up on by Jaden McDaniels — which sent the two to the court while Davis grabbed his leg in pain.

He slowly walked off the court and into the tunnel toward the locker room after standing up, but collapsed in pain in the tunnel.

He finished with nine points and one rebound in 20 minutes in the Lakers’ 110-92 loss at the Target Center.

Davis underwent an MRI in Chicago on Saturday — ahead of the Lakers’ game against the Bulls on Sunday — which revealed the MCL sprain.

With his four-week timeline, Davis will likely miss at least 14 games. The Lakers are set

Davis then walked slowly off the court to the locker room, which is when he fell in the tunnel.

The Lakers ruled Davis out of the

STAFFORD — It was a circus catch worthy of ESPN’s SportsCenter.

Running a fade pattern down the left sideline, Middletown High School South senior Anthony Brasco tipped the ball away from his defender, tipped it again toward himself and, somehow retaining his balance, hauled it in behind Southern’s defense, racing ahead for a 51-yard touchdown as the visiting bleachers exploded in delight and disbelief.

That third-quarter score provided the margin of victory as Middletown South edged Southern 21-14 Friday night, improving to 5-0 and clinching the outright title of the Shore Conference’s Colonial Division.

“That was an amazing play,” fellow senior Jack Willi said. “The joke about Anthony in practice is he doesn’t drop balls — because he doesn’t, no matter what. I’ve been in coverage against him before and it’s so frustrating, because you do everything you can and he still
