Report: Anthony Davis traveling with Lakers after clean MRI

0 Comments

Maybe Anthony Davis won’t miss any games after all.

Davis injured his back in the Lakers’ win over the Knicks last night. The initial word was he’d miss Los Angeles’ two-game road trip – at Mavericks on Friday, at Thunder on Saturday.

Shams Charania of The Athletic:

This is great news for Davis and the Lakers. Even if Davis doesn’t play in Dallas or Oklahoma City, his potential availability shows this injury isn’t too serious.

The Lakers (30-7) lead the Western Conference by 4.5 games. They can let off the gas a little in the regular season when necessary to get everyone healthy for a deep playoff run.
