Anthony Davis exited Game 5 of the NBA Finals between his Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat late in the first quarter after reaggravating his right heel injury.
Davis was trying to catch a Kyle Kuzma airball on offense late in the first quarter. It is unclear how he got hurt, but he was grabbing his right foot after the play. He exited the game to be examined on the sideline and got taped.
