Los Angeles Lakers’ great character, Anthony Davis, is expected to play in Game 6 of the team’s second playoff series, which draws on the Golden State Warriors on Friday.
Davis left Game 5 on Wednesday with an apparent head injury, but Chris Haynes of Turner Sport reported that he will be available in Game 6, except for a sitback. Mr Davignon, Member of the Commission. – Mr President, I would like to thank the rapporteur for his excellent work.
After the game, Lakers manager Darvin Ham was positive, but he offered no particulars. “He was shot in the head,” Ham said. “It looks like you’re doing very well already. This is where it is and the current stage.”
“I think he will play [Friday],” said Lakers guard Austin Reaves, via Dave McMenamin of ESPN, who reported that Davis felt “outraged” but was not immediately diagnosed with a concussion:
Davis was initially climbed onto the Lakers bench by athletic coach Jon Ishop before retiring to the back of the arena for further medical attention.

There was no mention of concussion after the initial evaluation of Davis, a source close to the Lakers center said.
He also reported that Davis’ parents visited him in the training room, as did Lakers executive Rob Pelinka and Davis’ agent Rich Paul.
