For the third straight season Anthony Davis is set to miss extended time due to an injury. The 29-year-old forward injured his right foot during the game against the Nuggets and will be out for at least a month.
LeBron James says that while AD can’t help the Lakers on the court and it will take a team effort to cover for his teammate’s absence.
“It’s going to be a collective group effort. It’s always been health with us since we all joined forces…,” the four-time NBA champion said. “But it’s always about health.
“If we can stay healthy or close to healthy as possible, have guys on the floor available, we’re going to give ourselves a chance to win because we’re going to play hard and we’re going to play the right way. Obviously, health is wealth.”
This season Davis is averaging 27.4 points, 12.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 33.4 minutes per game.
