Anthony Davis Unlikely to Play Game 5 due to Injury

NBA – Lakers superstar Anthony Davis is unlikely to play Game 5 against the #2 seed Phoenix Suns due to Groin Strain he suffered in the later part of the 1st half of Game 4 between the Lakers and the Suns at the Staple Center.

According to several reports, an MRI results confirmed a groin strain injury to Anthony Davis left thigh that could sideline him for Game 5 in a pivotal game against the Phoenix Suns.

The Suns reclaimed the home court advantage of the series as Game 5 will be played at the Phoenix Suns Arena in Phoenix, Arizona.

The series is tied 2 – 2, Suns win Games 1 and 4 while the Lakers wins Games 2 and 3 where Anthony Davis averaged 34 points both in those wins.

Davis will be a huge loss for the Lakers, he was the best player in the Lakers uniforms in this series without him the Lakers most important player LeBron James must step up and dictate the Lakers fate.

The LA Lakers has been unfortunate this 2020 – 2021 NBA Regular Season due to injuries suffered by their players.

Anthony Davis has been out for the most part of the early season due to Achilles related injury and then LeBron James missed 20 plus games the later part of the season due to high ankle injury which lead the team from the best in the West to the 7th seed.

If the Lakers are only healthy, they could easily win the West but for now with no AD in the Lakers rotation it will be hard for LeBron James to pass the Suns unless the old LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers shows up?

Will LeBron James lift the Lakers in the absence of his partner Anthony Davis? Will Jae Crowder continue to slow down LeBron? Game 5 tomorrow, Wednesday June 2 (PHILIPPINE TIME).
