Lakers center Anthony Davis is expected to be available for Game 6

Lakers center Anthony Davis suffered a head injury midway through the fourth quarter of the Warriors’ 121-106 Game 5 win in the Western Conference semifinals on Wednesday night after being accidentally hit by Golden State’s Kevon Looney.

Davis smiled on the bench and held his head before walking to the locker room with 7:43 left in the game. He and Looney battled for position in the paint on a driving layup by the Lakers’ DeAngelo Russell.

Lakers coach Darwin Hamm was later encouraged, without giving details, of what evaluations the big man underwent once he was in the locker room – such as a concussion test.

“Obviously everyone saw he had a bullet wound in his head, but we just checked him over, he’s already doing great,” Haim said. “She’s right where she is. That’s where it is right now.”

Despite any setbacks, Davis is expected to be available for Game 6 on Friday, according to a report from TNT and Bleacher Report.

Davis finished Wednesday night’s game with 23 points on 10-for-18 shooting, nine rebounds and three assists, but did not block a shot.

The Lakers lead the best-of-seven series 3–2.
