Lakers star striker Anthony Davis has some good news after suffering a horrific injury against Wolves.
The Los Angeles Lakers were missing a few players they added during the off-season and some to recent health and safety protocols. And after that Anthony Davis injured in the match with Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Lakers lost (110-92) another game Friday night when they visited Minnesota. But that’s what they care about the least, Anthony Davis’ injury is the biggest.
The injury occurred in the middle of the third quarter, after LeBron James pass the ball to Davis, then try to create space by pushing out Jaden McDaniels. James made a rough foul, but McDaniels fell right on Davis’ feet.

This resulted in Davis having to leave the game immediately. He then had an MRI of his knee and it revealed an MCL sprain, the team announced. But there is good news from “The Brow” itself.
Anthony Davis ‘MCL Sprain Is Not Serious
After the injury, Lakers fans were horrified when they saw Davis hobbling while going inside the tunnel, and even collapsed, contorted in pain as he hugged his knees. But for Purple and Yellow’s relief, according to eight All-Star appearances, injuries aren’t a big deal.

The Lakers endured 5 players during the NBA’s health and safety protocols before Russell Westbrook returned at the last minute before the game.
Trevor Ariza will play his first game against the Bulls while Kendrick Nunn is still out due to injury. So, the Lakers’ underappreciated roster signed veteran keeper Isaiah Thomas from the G-league on a tough extension.
Still struggling to get their first win streak, the Lakers couldn’t take any more injuries or the players were out. And I wish Davis a speedy recovery to avoid losing a series.
