Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis (left knee) doesn't play Sunday vs. Miami Heat

Anthony Davis, out for the past five weeks with a sprained MCL in his left knee, did not play in Sunday's 113-107 loss to the Miami Heat.

On Saturday, Davis was upgraded to questionable was considered a game-time decision.

Sunday was the 17th game Davis has missed since the Minnesota Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels collided with the Lakers All-Star's knee.

Davis was averaging 23.3 points on 52.1% shooting, 9.9 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 2.0 blocks and 1.2 steals this season prior to the injury. His jump shot, however, had been off. Davis is shooting just 60-for-185 (32%) on shots outside the paint this season, according to NBA.com.

Davis has used the rehabilitation to work on not only his knee but his shot mechanics as well, sources told ESPN.

Davis had been eyeing the Lakers' six-game road trip to return, as ESPN reported last week, and his presence could certainly help his team that has absorbed reports about Frank Vogel's job security and Russell Westbrook's role in his absence.
