LA will need Anthony Davis to be at full strength to overcome the Splash Bros and Co. in Game 6 after the six-foot-ten center sustained a head injury in Game 5 on Wednesday.
The 30-year-old’s designation on the injury report states merely that he is dealing with a right foot ailment, as he’s been listed as ‘probable’.
Lakers coach Darvin Ham said on Thursday of Davis: ‘He’s feeling great. Our medical staff gave us a great update. … (He is) not showing any signs of anything.’
