Lakers’ Anthony Davis Expected to Play in Game 6

Davis exited Game 5, a Warriors win, and never returned after being accidentally hit on the head by Warriors center Kevon Looney. Upon exiting, Davis appeared wobbly and needed the assistance of a wheelchair.

He presumably either has or will have to undergo a series of concussion-related tests before being cleared. Haynes reported that Davis will play “barring a setback.”

The Lakers lead the series, 3-2, and can close it out and advance to the Western Conference finals on Friday. Otherwise, they would return to Golden State for a Game 7 against the defending champions. Having Davis in the lineup would go a long way toward avoiding that.
