Anthony Davis Says Knee Injury 'A Little Stinger' 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Oct 27, 2021 1:03 pm

Anthony Davis was seen limping at the end of regulation during the Los Angeles Lakers game at the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday. Davis stayed in and scored four points and grabbed four rebounds, while playing the entire overtime in the Lakers victory.

Following the game, Davis termed his knee injury "a little stinger". Davis said he would see how he felt when he woke up on Wednesday. Lakers head coach Frank Vogel said that Davis banged knees with a Spurs player with about a minute to go in the fourth quarter. Vogel confirmed the Lakers would see how Davis was feeling before deciding his status for Thursday's game at the Dallas Mavericks.

Davis also suffered a scary moment early in the game. He attempted to dunk on Jakob Poeltl and his arm contorted at an odd angle, as Poeltl blocked the shot. Davis grabbed at his right shoulder, but ultimately stayed in the game.

The Lakers played in San Antonio without LeBron James, who sat out due to a sore right ankle. James was injured when Desmond Bane fell into his leg on Sunday night. Vogel said Los Angeles is taking a "marathon approach" with their star forward.
