Davis appeared to injure his right foot in the first quarter but seemed to shake it off and continue to play. However, he didn’t come out of the locker room after the halftime break.
Anthony Davis played just 17 minutes and ended his night with 10 points, four rebounds and two assists. Thomas Bryant started in AD’s place for the Lakers at the start of the second half.
LeBron James and Russell Westbrook are expected to carry the Lakers without the superstar big man.
Davis’ play since last month has given the Laker Nation hope that the purple and gold can somehow make a legitimate push for the playoffs. He has been playing so well that his name has entered MVP conversations of late.
With the 2020 NBA champ playing elite basketball, the Lakers have naturally allowed LeBron James to naturally play second fiddle to AD. They’ve proven to be successful this season if they have kept to that strategy.
