How did Anthony Davis suffer his injury?

In an attempt to make a basket against the Nuggets, Anthony collided with another player. At that moment, it didn’t seem serious, but he didn’t return to court later. After diagnosis, it showed an stress injury in his right foot, which he will have indefinitely.

However, coach Darvin Ham claims that the injury was old, and with stress, it relapsed again in that game. As Coach Ham pointed out, he suffered the same type of injury while with the New Orleans Pelicans.

What is the injury update?

Coach Ham revealed latest update on AD in a press conference. “The biggest thing is, his pain has just about dissipated. Davis is trending in the right direction when it comes to approaching a ramp up to return to the court,” Darvin Ham said to the reporter.

AD’s return date has not yet been set, but rumors say the 29-year-old forward may come back after two weeks. The 6.10-footer was seen training in rehab.

Before his injury, he was carrying the Lakers towards the playoffs. Anthony Davis scored 27.4 points, 12.1 rebounds, and 2.6 assists per game with 59% shooting from the floor and had more than 30 points in his last three games before the Nuggets. Lakers fans and teammates are eagerly awaiting his comeback.
