VIDEO: Lakers’ Anthony Davis hurts back after scary fall vs. Knicks

Anthony Davis, Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers superstar Anthony Davis fell down hard on his back late in the third quarter against the New York Knicks after contesting a Julius Randle shot.

Davis writhed in pain and was on the floor for several minutes before being brought to the locker room.

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.

Prior to Tuesday’s game against the Knicks, Anthony Davis is averaging 27.7 points, 9.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 2.6 blocks per game. He is shooting well from the field, making 50.7 percent from the field and 86.2 percent from deep.
