Reports: Anthony Davis is ruled out due to calf contusion against Spurs

Anthony Davis of the Los Angeles Lakers will miss Saturday’s game against the San Antonio Spurs. Los Angeles has played much better recently and Anthony Davis has had something to do with that.

The former All-Star and NBA Champion has battled through adversity over the past few seasons when injuries have nearly kept him off the court. But it looks like things are finally taking a step in the right direction.

Los Angeles has gone 4-1 over their last five games and Anthony Davis is putting up insane numbers. In his previous game against the San Antonio Spurs, Davis put up 25 points and 15 rebounds in just 35 minutes.

Anthony Davis will miss action tonight vs. the Spurs due to a left calf contusion the Lakers have announced.

With the Lakers on a back-to-back, it makes sense why they decided to rule him out on Saturday night.

The Lakers are being smart with the usage of Davis. They understand his injury history and realize that he needs to be on the court for them to succeed.

Anthony Davis is averaging 26.3 points, 12.8 rebounds, and 2.2 blocks per game. The efficiency is there as well, shooting 57% from the field.

With the type of play that Davis has given the Lakers, Los Angeles likely won’t trade him now. There were rumors that they could sell him if the right package presented itself.

Los Angeles takes on a San Antonio Spurs team that’s currently 6-14. The Lakers haven’t been much better, sitting at 6-11, but after factoring in that four of their six wins were in their last five games, things are looking bright.

LeBron James’ presence is still questionable for the game, so things could get interesting. Los Angeles still has enough to get the job done against a pesky and young San Antonio team.

They play on Monday against the Indiana Pacers.
