Los Angeles Lakers fans are freaking out after Anthony Davis left Thursday’s game against the Clippers.
The Los Angeles Lakers were already dealing with the news of star LeBron James sitting out after returning prematurely from his high right ankle sprain. With the team trying to avoid the Western Conference’s play-in round, the last thing they needed was another injury to a top player in the starting lineup.
During Thursday’s game against the rival Los Angeles Clippers, forward Anthony Davis walked to the locker room after appearing to tweak his right ankle in the first quarter, per ESPN’s Dave McMenamin.
Spectrum SportsNet’s Mike Trudell reports that Davis has been ruled out for the remainder of the game with back spasms.
Of course, Lakers fans are taking this scare extremely well and are not freaking out whatsoever. That was meant to be read in a sarcastic tone.
Davis only played nine minutes during Thursday night’s game, where he scored four points while shooting two-for-nine from the field.
