Los Angeles Lakers superstar Anthony Davis was not available in the second half of his team’s loss to the Phoenix Suns Sunday.
In the second quarter, Davis went to the ground after missing a layup and immediately grabbed his left leg while on the ground. He stayed in the locker room to be further evaluated. Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma started the second half in Davis’s place.
Phoenix took advantage of Davis’ absence and took control of the game in the second half to even the series vs. the Lakers at two games apiece.
This is just the latest injury Davis has dealt with this season. The big man missed half of the regular season due to Achilles tendinosis and a calf strain. Davis strained his left knee in Game 3 of this series but decided to play through it.
