Utah Jazz center Ed Davis has suffered a fractured left fibula and will be at out at least a month, the team announced on Saturday afternoon.
Davis suffered the injury in the third quarter of the Jazz’s 102-101 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Friday night at the Golden 1 Center, and could be seen limping to the locker room.
Davis underwent an X-ray and an MRI on Friday with the medical staff, which revealed the fracture in his leg. He will be re-evaluated again in four weeks. He played just seven minutes in the loss, grabbing a single rebound.
Davis signed a one-year deal worth nearly $4.5 million with the Jazz this summer, with the intent to back up Rudy Gobert down low. Utah marks the sixth team for the 34-year-old in his decade-long career in the NBA, and his third team in three years. He has averaged just 1.7 points and 5.2 rebounds in just more than 12 minutes per contest through the first six games this season.
The Kings led throughout most of the contest on Friday night, mounting a 12-point lead in the first half. While the Jazz rallied back in the second half, Kings big man Harrison Barnes grabbed an offensive rebound and put it back in with just 2.9 seconds left to put them ahead and grab their first win of the season.
