Davis is fourth in the NBA in scoring, averaging 24.1 points per game, and leads the league in blocks with 2.74 per game.  

Davis is slated to start for the Western Conference at the NBA All-Star Game in Brooklyn, N.Y. on Feb. 15. It is unclear if the injury will keep him out of action.

Two of his fellow Western Conference team starters, Blake Griffin and Kobe Bryant, will not play in the game due to injury.
