Original report: Anthony Davis re-aggravated his right heel contusion that’s been on the injury report. Looked like he got kicked there. He is available to return.
ANALYSIS: Anthony Davis went down in the first half and appeared to be in severe pain as he could not put any weight on his right foot. Laker fans have to feel relieved knowing it is only a contusion and nothing more serious.
Davis returned to the game after going down and played the rest of the night, though he did look noticeably hurt at times. AD says he will be 'fine' for Sunday's Game 6 matchup and is officially listed as 'probable' on the injury report.
