Lakers star Anthony Davis gives update on knee injury after scary fall
The victory, however, might prove to be a little costly for the Lakers as Davis appeared to have injured his right knee in the closing moments of regulation after attempting to snag a rebound. AD went on to finish the game, tallying monster numbers of 35 points, 17 rebounds, four assists, and four blocks.
But while he didn’t appear to be too bothered by the pain, Davis admitted after the game that it was a “little stinger.” (via Lakers reporter Ryan Ward)
Anthony Davis called his knee injury "a little stinger" and will see how it is when he wakes up tomorrow.

Davis, who’s had a long history of injuries, also gave the Lakers a little scare early against the Spurs after grabbing his right shoulder in the first quarter. To recall, the All-Star big man was limited to just 36 games last season due to various injuries.
With AD’s setback, it feels like a deja vu for the Lakers, with LeBron sitting out the game against the Spurs due to a sore right ankle. The superstar duo got sidelined for an extended stretch last season, as the Purple & Gold faltered in the team standings. When they both returned for the NBA Playoffs, their rhythm wasn’t the same and they got bounced out of the first round.
