Anthony Davis Lakers

Anthony Davis suffered a thumb injury during the Los Angeles Lakers’ game against the Brooklyn Nets in China on Saturday, but the injury is not too damaging, according to a report.

The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported on Saturday that Davis does not appear to have ligament damage and likely has a Grade 1 sprain, based on initial exams.

Davis will still undergo further testing on his thumb.

The big man, who is in his first season with the Lakers, injured his thumb blocking a shot in the first quarter and did not return.

Davis had his thumb wrapped and iced it after suffering the injury.

The Lakers begin the regular season on October 22 against the rival Clippers.
