Will Anthony Davis suit up for Game 6 against the Warriors?
Well we do know he definitely appeared to be seriously hurt. While fighting for position in the paint, Anthony Davis took an elbow from Kevon Looney to the side of his head. Davis was taken out of the game, brought back for evaluation, and eventually ruled out for Game 5 with what the Lakers ruled as a head injury. Things are already getting interesting in the gambling world for the next game, in particular at Canadian betting sites.
Here’s the play where Davis was injured as well as the aftermath that includes him receiving attention on the bench before being taken to the locker room, watch below:

Turner Sports’ Chris Haynes reported that Davis was being evaluated at Chase Center, with the possibility of a concussion looming as a potential diagnosis. Haynes added that Davis was brought to the locker room in a wheelchair following his evaluation.
In a later report, Haynes added that Davis “appears to have avoided a concussion and is doing better now,” a positive sign for Davis and the Lakers.
Lakers head coach Darvin Ham told reporters that he spoke with Davis, who he said “seems to be doing really good already.”

According to reports, he’s going to be expected to get out of his street clothes and play a crucial game 6.

LeBron James also echoed Lakers Coach’s note that AD appeared to be feeling much better. If Davis does indeed suffer a concussion, he would most likely have to miss LA’s next shot at a closeout game of the series, which the Lakers still leads 3-2. The Lakeshow will get their next chance to boot the Dubs out of the 2023 postseason on Friday, as the series returns home to Crypto.com Arena.
Should be interesting to see how AD plays, if he plays.
