The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Houston Rockets twice. It was like practice for LeBron James and his teammates. But, Anthony Davis suffered an injury in the 117-100 win. Lakers fans don’t really like the idea of seeing AD on the injury report. Should we panic?
Davis sustained a toe injury and may miss some time on the floor. Lakers head coach Frank Vogel provided an update on Davis’ injury. According to him, AD “jammed his toe” but his X-Rays came out negative. Vogel will be super careful with his teammate and the team has listed Davis as questionable for the upcoming game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. LeBron is playing and Wesley Matthews will stay out due to his Achilles soreness.
Fans are worried about Anthony Davis and his injury
This is not the ideal scenario for the Lakers. Davis may miss a few games due to his toe injury. Lakers players need the superstar on the floor. But, things could have been much worse for the Lakers. The good news is that Davis is dealing with a minor injury. Hopefully, it won’t take much time for his toe to heal.
Davis had a light workload type of game. He has been off to a strong start of the 2020-21 NBA season. Davis played just 29 minutes of action against Houston. The Lakers big man finished the night with 19 points on 7-of-8 shooting, 10 rebounds, two assists, five blocks, and zero turnovers.
The Lakers are in the middle of back-to-back set. Everything points to the fact that Vogel will give his big man the night off. The team has a 9-3 record at this point of the season and sits on top of the Western Conference. We do hope that Lakers players will stay on top throughout the entire season. It’s a tight race, but Lakers players look better than any other franchise in the NBA.
Last season, the Lakers won the championship. LeBron and AD won’t take anything less than that. Davis got his first ring and signed a five-year contract extension with the team. In other words, he is ready to win a few more championships as a Laker.
