An MRI exam on Anthony Davis’ sprained right thumb Monday revealed no serious damage and the Lakers star is considered day to day.

Davis did not play in the Lakers’ 104-98 preseason victory over the Golden State Warriors on Monday at Staples Center.

Davis was injured during the first half of the Lakers’ exhibition game against the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday in Shenzhen, China, while trying to block a shot. He had it wrapped in black tape and returned to the court.

He finished the game with six points on two-for-seven shooting, two rebounds and a steal in 12 minutes.

The Lakers lost to the Nets, 114-111, falling to 1-1 in exhibition games this preseason. The game capped a wild week filled with uncertainty.
