The mid-game crisis has hit the Los Angeles Lakers hard. Their match against the Denver Nuggets was expected to be a neck-to-neck battle. Considering the previous performances, Denver was all in a great shape while Lakers looked forward to extend their winning run. However, Anthony Davis’ injury left the team in parts. They count revive their pieces and were handed defeat. Lakers are facing the brunt of this conundrum as Davis limped off the court.
The Los Angeles Lakers were initially down by a point to the Nuggets. But they made it up as soon as they gap was too big. All thanks to AD’s unprecedented shooting and his form. After a 6-poinyt advantage over the opponents, Lakers finally were straightening up their entangled defense. But the joy was not for long. As Anthony made his move to the bucket with a jab move, he possibly strained his Achilles. He straight away limped off the court to the ring holding his ankle. AD was just back with an injury. This was supposedly to be his 2nd game back for the franchise.
Injury update by LA Lakers over Anthony Davis Archilles Issue
Lakers straight away announced diagnosis for AD in the second half. Anthony Davis will undergo an MRI tomorrow. But as off now, he has a strained Achilles. Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted, “Lakers All-Star Anthony Davis re-aggravated his right Achilles tendon and here is some swelling, sources tell ESON. He will get an MRI on Monday.” Davis suffered this injury just after his recovery. His absence has come in handy for the franchise and missing more games may trouble the team further.
Health questions aside, the forward has seen his production drop early in the 20-21 season. With Montrez Harrell, Marc Gasol and Markieff Morris, the team still lacks a great forward with LeBron James’ compatibility. Even their defense is going to suffer with a proper starter. Hopefully the team re-aligns their improvements and get line-ups ready to start winning again.
