Davis (groin) is out Wednesday against the Rockets, Dave McMenamin of ESPN reports.
Davis played 43 minutes during Tuesday's overtime win over the Knicks, but he experienced groin tightness afterward and will end up missing Wednesday's game. LeBron James (ankle) will also sit out again, while Alex Caruso (foot) is listed as questionable. The pileup of injuries could ultimately lead to Kyle Kuzma (back) and Talen Horton-Tucker (calf) -- both listed as probable -- controlling the offense in what's close to a must-win game if the Lakers hope to avoid the play-in.
Davis (groin) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Rockets, Mark Stein of The New York Times reports.
Davis' groin tightened up during Tuesday's win over the Knicks, and the issue will put his status for Wednesday's game into jeopardy. Davis hasn't missed a game since he returned from calf and Achilles injuries April 22, but Markieff Morris and Kyle Kuzma (back) could see increased run if Davis is held out.
Davis said his groin tightened up during Tuesday's win over the Knicks, and his availability for Wednesday's game against the Rockets is to be determined, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Davis hasn't missed a game since returning from calf and Achilles injuries April 22, and he's played at least 39 minutes in three straight games. However, he's now dealing with a groin injury that has him questionable for Wednesday's game.
Davis (calf) will play and start Tuesday against the Knicks, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.
As expected, Davis will continue playing through a strained right calf. Since returning from his extended absence, he's averaged 20.6 points, 7.2 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.8 blocks and 1.0 steals in 29.6 minutes.
Davis (calf) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Knicks, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.
Davis continues to make his way onto the injury report, but the star is expected to play through the issue, especially down the stretch. Expect a final update on Davis' status by the Lakers closer to tipoff.
Davis recorded 42 points (13-27 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 15-17 FT), 12 rebounds, five assists, three steals and three blocked shots in Sunday's 123-110 win over the Suns.
Davis was brilliant in what was potentially a first-round playoff preview, should the Lakers finish as the Western Conference's seventh or eighth seed. His stat line was easily his best since returning from injury, and his averages of 39.0 points, 12.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 2.0 blocked shots over the past two games is evidence of a huge resurgence from the All-Star. It couldn't come at a better time for the Lakers, who are struggling to stay out of the play-in tourney.
Davis (calf) is starting Sunday's game against Phoenix.
Davis was probable with a right calf strain, so it's not very surprising to see him in the lineup. He should continue to see plenty of work with LeBron James (ankle) unavailable.
Davis (calf) is probable for Sunday's game against the Suns, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.
Davis is listed with a right calf strain, but he should be available on Sunday, barring any setbacks. He's coming off his best statistical performance since returning to the lineup in late April, posting 36 points, 12 rebounds, five assists and one block across 39 minutes in Friday's loss to Portland. The Lakers will continue to rely heavily on Davis until LeBron James (ankle) is able to return.
Davis tallied 36 points (12-23 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 10-15 FT), 12 rebounds, five assists and one blocked shot across 39 minutes in Friday's loss to Portland.
The struggling Lakers slipped to seventh place in the Western Conference with the loss despite Davis' valiant effort. The big man registered his highest point and rebound total since returning from an extended absence April 22. In fact, his 36 points accounted for his second-highest total overall this season. Davis could see copious playing time down the stretch as Los Angeles attempts to avoid participating in the postseason play-in tournament. That could help him boost mildly disappointing per-game season averages of 21.3 points, 7.9 boards, 1.2 steals and 1.8 blocks.
Davis (back) is starting Friday's game against the Trail Blazers, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.
Davis left Thursday's game against the Clippers in the first quarter due to back spasms, but he was confident in his ability to start Friday. Davis should continue to handle a significant role for the Lakers with LeBron James (ankle) and Dennis Schroder (COVID-19 protocols) unavailable.
Davis (back) expects to start Friday at Portland, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.
The 28-year-old played only nine minutes Thursday against the Clippers as he battled back spasms, but he doesn't believe the injury will prevent him from taking the court Friday. The Lakers can ill afford to be without Davis since LeBron James (ankle) and Dennis Schroder (COVID-19 protocols) are already ruled out as they attempt to secure their playoff positioning.
Davis won't return to Thursday's matchup with the Clippers due to back spasms, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.
Davis reportedly suffered back spasms sometime during the first half of Thursday's contest. This will be a mighty blow to the Lakers if Davis needs time off once again, as the forward recently returned from missing 30 straight games from Feb. 16 to April 19 due to a calf injury. The Lakers' next game is Friday against Portland, and Davis should presumably be a game-time call until more news regarding or confirming his status surfaces. The former Kentucky Wildcat posted four points in nine minutes before exiting Thursday.
Davis (calf) is available for Thursday's game against the Clippers.
Davis is good to go, as expected after he was initially listed with a 'probable' designation. The forward hasn't been his usual self since coming back from a calf injury, but with LeBron James (ankle) out Thursday and Friday, the Lakers will be relying on him as much as ever. Davis is only averaging 17.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 2.0 blocks and 1.0 steals since returning to the lineup.
Davis (calf) is probable for Thursday's game against the Clippers, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.
Davis is expected to play Thursday after being ruled probable for his eighth straight game. The forward has struggled since returning from his calf injury, averaging only 17.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 2.0 blocks and 1.0 steals. Expect the 28-year-old to have an even more important role for the Lakers on Thursday, as LeBron James (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday.
Davis finished with 25 points (9-19 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-7 FT), seven rebounds, three blocks and an assist across 33 minutes in Monday's 93-89 win over the Nuggets.
LeBron James (ankle) took a seat on the back-to-back, leaving Davis to carry the load for the Lakers. He delivered in stellar fashion by making key plays on both ends of the floor. Having played 30-plus minutes in multiple games, it appears that his calf injury is largely behind him, but the Lakers will continue to monitor Davis' workload as they look to avoid falling into the play-in tournament in the Western Conference.
Davis (calf) is in the starting lineup for Monday's game against Denver, Harrison Faigen of Silver Screen and Roll reports.
As expected, Davis, although bothered with a lingering right calf strain, will play and start his seventh straight matchup since returning. The forward is currently averaging 21.3 points, 8.0 rebounds and 3.1 assists over 29 games played.
Davis (calf) is listed as probable for Monday's game against Denver, Ryan Ward of Lakers Nation reports.
This will be the seventh straight game for which Davis is listed as probable, so the designation doesn't mean much. The big man has been mostly disappointing since returning from injury April 22, and he's coming off of another poor offensive showing (12 points, 5-16 FG) in Sunday's 121-114 loss to the Raptors. The Lakers will be without LeBron James (ankle) on Monday, so expect Davis to be leaned on more heavily for playmaking in the half court.
Davis delivered 12 points (5-16 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), nine rebounds, seven assists, three steals and a block across 33 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Raptors.
Davis needed 16 shots just to end up with 12 points and had a rough time offensively, but he supplied his lack of efficiency with solid contributions in other categories. The most important thing with Davis right now is that he has to stay healthy, but his numbers since returning to the court aren't exactly eye-popping -- 16.5 points, 6.7 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.8 blocks per game while shooting just 39.4 percent from the field.
Davis (calf) is available for Sunday's game against the Raptors.
Davis was probable for Sunday's contest, but he'll be able to play through his calf issue once again. He's averaged 17.4 points and 6.2 rebounds in 28.2 minutes per game across his last five appearances.
Davis (calf) is probable for Sunday's contest against the Raptors.
Davis continues to be placed on the injury report with a strained right calf, but he's played five games in a row. Over the past three games, he's averaged 22.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.0 blocks, 2.7 assists and 1.0 steals in 32.0 minutes.
