Anthony Davis of the Los Angeles Lakers did not play on Friday night in a win against the Dallas Mavericks due to a gluteus maximus injury.

Though the Lakers won without him, Davis’s status has been upgraded to questionable for the team’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night – while his teammates LeBron James and Danny Green will both be out in the game.

In his first season in the purple and gold, Davis has been an absolute beast so far in 2019-20 as one of the best big men in the NBA. So far, his terrific play and elevated profile around the league on one of the NBA’s most storied franchises has led to him getting a huge amount of All-Star votes, of which he is extremely deserving considering his statistics.

Davis is putting up 27.1 points per game, 9.4 rebounds per game, 3.2 assists per game, 1.5 steals per game and 2.6 blocks per game – stupendous numbers that showcase Davis’s overall brilliance.

While the Lakers might be without him against the Thunder, their 31-7 record is tops in the Western Conference, and the team is top 10 in both offensive and defensive rating as well as points scored and points allowed, according to Basketball-Reference.

Davis is a big reason why, as his two-way impact as gifted 6’10” scorer around the basket who is not shy about taking three-pointers as well as a terrifying rim protector make him a superstar in this league.
