Anthony Davis injury update: Lakers’ coach Darvin Ham claims lead PF’s foot pain has ‘just about dissipated’
Anthony Davis of the Los Angeles Lakers has been ruled out of the game against the Denver Nuggets due to a foot injury. Following the injury, the medical team estimated his absence for one month; however, his recent reevaluation brings good news for the fans.
Since Davis’ injury, the Lakers have struggled to regain their winning ways. They are currently the 13th seed in the Western Conference, and their playoff chances improve with each game. It seems Davis’ absence is taking a huge toll on the team.
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.
