Davis (groin) played only five minutes against Phoenix in a Game 6 playoff loss Thursday, finishing with no points, one rebound and one assist.
Davis bravely gave it a go while being obviously hobbled by a groin injury, and it didn't take long to realize that the superstar forward wasn't going to be able to continue. The disappointing ending culminated in a difficult campaign. Davis missed extensive time due to injury and finished the regular season with his lowest scoring average (21.8 points per game) since his second year in the league. Davis scored 34 points in each of the Lakers' two playoff wins and remains the most central piece of the team's plans aside from retaining LeBron James.
