Anthony Davis says he'll be ready for Game 6 of NBA Finals after re-aggravating heel injury
Anthony Davis believes things will be fine in Game 5 of the NBA Finals after a fear of injury.
The Los Angeles Lakers star fell Friday in the first quarter with an apparent foot injury after colliding with Miami Heat striker Andre Iguodala. Davis immediately started clutching his lower right ankle and soon hobbled off.
Davis stayed in the bank but didn't return for the remainder of the quarter. When he came back, he limped at times, visibly for the rest of the game. The Lakers soon announced that Davis had worsened a heel injury again.
After the game, a thrilling 111-108 Heat win, Davis admitted the injury but said he will be ready for Game 6 on Sunday.
Davis' health is obviously a massive factor for the Lakers as they try to shut down the heat. The big man averages 26.2 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks per game in his first NBA final, and his worst game - a night of 15 points and five rebounds in Game 3 - was no coincidence the first Loss of the series by the Lakers.
