Lakers’ Anthony Davis could hit Celtics with thigh injury, LeBron James has issues with abs stretch
Anthony Davis joined LeBron James above Los Angeles Lakers‘injury report ahead of Friday’s nationally televised match with Boston Celtics. Davis is officially listed as probable because of a right thigh injury.
In the Lakers’ 109-102 loss first Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday, the team announced that Davis took a knee in his right hip, but it won’t stop him from returning to the game. Davis told reporters after the game that it was Giannis Antetokounmpo knee, and it happened when Davis sank in transition, with Antetokounmpo competing from behind. At the time, Davis was clearly annoyed that Antetokounmpo wasn’t called up for a foul, and he later said that “we didn’t get our fouls – I think the man on the break, I think Giannis clearly fouled me.”
As previously noted, chances are James could come back in Boston. He’s played just six of Los Angeles’ 16 games this season, and abdominal strain – or, as it appears on the injury report, rectus abdominis strain – has kept him on the shelf since the win. 119-117 before the lowly Houston Rockets on November 2nd, on Wednesday, James to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin that he hopes to play against the Celtics, and ESPN reported that his chances are 50-50. However, officially, he is listed as a suspect.
The seriously attacked Lakers are 8-8, with 24th offensive stats (104.4 points out of 100 possessions), 15th defense (107.2 points out of 100) and standings net. 23rd in NBA. However, as Davis said on Wednesday, they “gave a team together, and we haven’t seen it yet.”
