Anthony Davis exits Lakers’ Game 5 loss after being hit in the head by Kevon Looney

During the fourth quarter of the Los Angeles Lakers’ Game 5 loss to the Golden State Warriors, Anthony Davis suffered an injury after being struck on the side of his head by Kevon Looney. Davis exited the game and did not return after being evaluated by the Lakers’ athletic trainer. He was later placed in a wheelchair and carted to a training room after feeling “woozy.” However, he was able to leave the arena without assistance.

Unclear status

There was no mention of a concussion after the initial evaluation of Davis, and his official status moving forward is unclear. The Lakers did not identify Davis’ reason for leaving the game or the likelihood of him being available to play in Game 6. If diagnosed with a concussion, Davis would not be able to be cleared until 24 hours after the initial injury.

Optimism from teammates

Despite the uncertainty surrounding Davis’ injury, several of his teammates offered optimism about his potential to play in Game 6. LeBron James stated that the medical team said Davis was doing better. The Lakers will have a second chance to finish the series and advance to the Western Conference finals at home, where they are undefeated so far this postseason.

Overall, the Lakers suffered a disappointing loss to the Warriors in Game 5, and Davis’ injury adds to the uncertainty surrounding the team’s playoff hopes. However, the Lakers remain optimistic about their chances to bounce back in Game 6 and close out the series.
