  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Probable for Sunday

    Davis (head) is probable for Sunday's contest against the Pistons.

    Davis landed on the injury report Saturday with a head contusion, but he has no concussive symptoms and is likely to play Sunday. It's unclear when he suffered the injury, but he didn't seem to be bothered at all Friday against Sacramento, when he totaled 23 points, eight rebounds, four assists, four blocks and three steals across 49 minutes.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Blocks four shots in ugly loss

    Davis provided 23 points (9-22 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 5-8 FT), eight rebounds, four assists, four blocks and three steals over 49 minutes during Friday's 141-137 3OT loss to Sacramento.

    While it was another strong defensive effort for Davis, it was overshadowed by the Lakers blowing a double-digit lead and failing to close out one of the league's worst teams in three overtime periods. After missing Wednesday's win over the Pacers, Davis struggled from the floor, the free throw line, and from three, where he's now down to an unbelievably poor 16.7 percent (7-42 3PT) on the season. After shooting 26.0 percent from deep last season and 33.0 percent in 2019-20, Davis' outside shot has completely abandoned him to the point that he's no longer a threat from that area of the floor. Still, Davis remains an elite fantasy option thanks to his scoring, rebounding and defensive contributions. Entering the weekend, he's up to 1.3 steals and 2.3 blocks per game.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Available vs. Kings

    Davis (illness) is available against the Kings on Friday.

    Davis is no longer on the league's injury report. Though he sat out one game because of a non-COVID illness, it should not prevent him from playing well against an underwhelming Kings team. Davis averaged 26.9 points and 2.1 blocks across the Lakers' previous seven home games.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Will not play Wednesday

    Davis (illness) will not play during Wednesday's contest against the Pacers, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

    The All-Star big will miss his first game of the season due to an illness. Carmelo Anthony and Dwight Howard are both candidates to see more run in Davis' absence. The Kentucky product's next chance to return comes Friday against the Kings.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Downgraded to doubtful

    Davis (illness) is unlikely to play Wednesday against the Pacers, Tony East of the West Indianapolis Community News reports.

    Davis played through an illness Tuesday but is seemingly feeling worse Wednesday. Assuming he's out, more minutes could be available for Carmelo Anthony, Talen Horton-Tucker, DeAndre Jordan and Dwight Howard.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Questionable against Pacers

    Davis (illness) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pacers.

    Davis continues to deal with a non-COVID illness and will land on the injury report once again. He played through the issue Tuesday and logged 20 points, six rebounds and three assists in 34 minutes.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Scores 20 despite shooting woes

    Davis accumulated 20 points (7-17 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-11 FT), six rebounds and three assists over 34 minutes during Tuesday's 106-100 loss to the Knicks.

    Davis didn't have his best game, and while his final scoring output still looked good, it was due to his volume and not because he was an efficient scorer. The shooting woes aren't a regular issue with Davis, however, and there's a chance this was nothing more than a subpar outing for him -- based on his standards as an elite big man, though. He will try to bounce back Wednesday on the road against the Pacers.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Will play Tuesday

    Davis (illness) will play Tuesday against the Knicks, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Game-time call Tuesday

    Davis (illness) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Knicks, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

    Davis woke up with a fever Tuesday, leading him to be downgraded from probable to questionable as he is dealing with flu-like symptoms. It's not a COVID-related illness, so the 28-year-old shouldn't miss extended time even if he's deemed unavailable versus New York.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Downgraded to questionable

    Davis (illness) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game at New York, Dave McMenamin of ESPN reports.

    Davis is seemingly always banged up, and he entered the day listed as probable due to a bruised thigh. The Lakers have since clarified that he's now closer to a 50-50 call to play, as he battles flu-like symptoms. The good news is Davis' illness is not COVID-related, so even if he does sit out Tuesday, he likely wouldn't miss extended time. The Lakers will already be without LeBron James (suspension) as they enter the first half of a pre-Thanksgiving back-to-back.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Listed as probable for Tuesday

    Davis (thigh) is probable for Tuesday's matchup with the Knicks, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Davis emerged from last Wednesday's loss to Milwaukee with a bruised thigh, but he has been able to play through the issue, so he will likely be available Tuesday. The star big man hasn't missed a game this season and is averaging 24.6 points, 10.5 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 2.3 blocks and 1.2 steals across 35.1 minutes per game.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Leads Lakers to win

    Davis supplied 30 points (11-19 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 8-10 FT), 10 rebounds, six assists, five blocks and four steals in 40 minutes during Sunday's 121-116 win over Detroit.

    Davis had to step his game with LeBron James being ejected, and the star big man responded with his second straight 30-point game -- a figure he's also reached in four of his last eight contests. Regardless of whether James gets suspended or not due to Sunday's fracas against Detroit, expect Davis to be heavily involved once again when the Lakers take on the Knicks on Tuesday.

    A bruised thigh did not prevent Davis from playing Friday against the Celtics, and he'll remain active Sunday. He logged 31 points across 37 minutes at Boston, but the Lakers fell apart in the third quarter yet again and ended up being blown out in LeBron James' return to action.
