After the big scare, major update on Anthony Davis!
Handicapped by back pain since the start of the pre-season, Anthony Davis seemed touched during the meeting against the Nuggets on Wednesday. He therefore gave his news after the defeat, as did his coach, Darvin Ham.
So far, everything seemed to be going well, or almost. Holder on the first four games of the Lakers season, Anthony Davis unquestionably placed himself as the best element of his team. However, its production was still insufficient on the floor of the Nuggets, this Wednesday. In addition to the defeat (99-110), the Unibrow gave the fans cold sweats with obvious signs of pain during the match:

Reassuring news about Anthony Davis
Visibly hit in the back in the rebound fight, Davis had reason to worry, he who has been suffering from this area for many weeks. Despite this alarming scene, he nevertheless finished the meeting well on the floor, compiling at the same time 22 points, 14 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks. His trainer, Darvin Ham, therefore wanted to be reassuring about him at a press conference:
Darvin Ham said Anthony Davis will be fine – said he wouldn’t have been able to finish the game if he wasn’t.

Darvin Ham said Anthony Davis was fine, and he wouldn’t have been able to finish the game on the pitch if he wasn’t.
Same resolutely optimistic story from AD himself, who considers himself fit enough to apply for the clash against the Timberwolves this Friday:
How are you. I just got hit in the back, so the pain came back, but I’ll be fine. (…) I just try to keep it loose during the game, and I play trying not to pay attention to it.
It would be better for the Angelinos if their star interior was actually handed over for this poster, given the matchup that awaits them in the racket. Despite their adaptation concerns, Karl-Anthony Towns and Rudy Gobert should indeed not hesitate to punish the interior defense of Purple & Gold if they have the opportunity. The presence of Davis therefore seems inevitable to hope to emerge victorious from this duel!
More fear than harm for Anthony Davis, who would obviously be able to play despite the back pain felt against Denver. In any case, his most vicious future adversaries know where to aim for him to put him on the sidelines!
