Basketball News: Los Angeles Lakes lose 110-92 against Minnesota Timberwolves after Anthony Davis had a right ankle injury in the first quarter and then a left knee injury in the third quarter before departing the game.

Anthony Davis of the Los Angeles Lakers was injured twice in the game against Minnesota on Friday night, first in his right ankle and then in his left knee.

Davis will get an MRI exam on Saturday, according to coach Frank Vogel. In 20 minutes of the Timberwolves’ 110-92 loss, he scored just nine points and one rebound.

Davis crashed on Minnesota’s Naz Reid’s leg late in the first quarter and collapsed to the floor gripping his right ankle in obvious discomfort. Davis was able to make his way inside the locker room on his own for further inspection. Before getting hurt, he scored six points in 11 minutes.

Davis returned to the game late in the second quarter after jogging back to the bench. However, the eight-time All-Star centre collided with Minnesota’s Jaden McDaniels in the third quarter and was unable to put weight on his left leg. He got up from the floor once more, but this time for the remainder of the night.

Davis missed two games last week due to pain in his left knee. He scored 20 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in his return to Dallas on Wednesday.

With serious Covid-19 troubles, the Lakers were already short-handed. Six of their players were in the NBA’s health and safety protocols, while Trevor Ariza was also out due to injury.
