Davis was able to walk on his own after the fall, but he was obviously in pain after he clearly landed on his rear end/tailbone area.

Davis was struggling early in the game and had only five points, six rebounds and five assists after 28 minutes of play for the Lakers.
According Dave McMenamin of ESPN, the Lakers are calling AD’s injury a sacral contusion. He was also ruled out for the rest of the game. The team, however, emphasized that x-rays on Davis’ back came back negative.
Moreover, per his agent Rich Paul, Davis is feeling sore due to the hard and scary fall.
