With flu-like problems, Anthony Davis, the superstar big man for the LA Lakers, left the game against the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 1st half on Tuesday night as well as did not come back.
The team concluded that the sickness is not COVID-19-related. Prior to tipoff, Anthony Davis developed a temperature in the afternoon. Davis received fluids and medicine from the LA Lakers’ coaching staff after they took him out of the game.
Davis is the sole member of the Lakers’ roster that is now ailing, according to coach Darvin Ham just after game.
Davis traveled with the squad on Tuesday night’s trip to Toronto; whether or not he will play in the second game of the consecutive against the Raptors would depend on how he feels on Wednesday, according to Ham. With matches against Toronto, then Philadelphia 76ers, as well as the Pistons still to play on their 6 matches road trip, the LA Lakers are currently 2-1.
Anthony Davis Left The LA Lakers Camp:
In 8 minutes on Tue, Anthony Davis had just one score overall, making just one of 3 free throw attempts, along with 3 rebounding as well as 2 assists.
Despite his unavailability, the Lakers won thanks in large part to LeBron James’ twenty-one points and season-high seventeen rebounds. With eight minutes, thirty-two seconds left in the 4th quarter, the score was knotted at 92. The Cavaliers then went on a 21-6 rampage over the following five minutes, ten seconds to completely blow the game wide. For the 1st time in James’ 9 years of playing against the Cavaliers, Cleveland swept the season series 2-0.
Donovan Mitchell received “MVP” shouts from the Rockets Mortgage Fieldhouse audience after scoring seventeen of his forty-three points in the 4th quarter—a shout usually reserved for Lebron all of those years.
