SAN FRANCISCO– Anthony Davis left the Los Angeles Lakers‘ 121-106 Game 5 loss for the Warriors of the Golden State mid-fourth quarter Wednesday night and did not return after being accidentally hit in the side of the head by Golden State’s Kevin Looney.
Davis was initially evaluated on the Lakers bench by athletic trainer Jon Ishop before retiring to the back of the arena for further medical attention.
Davis was placed in a wheelchair and carted into a workout room after feeling “light-headed,” a source told ESPN. However, Davis was able to walk out of the arena to the team bus at the end of the night without assistance.
After an initial diagnosis of Davis, there was no evidence of a concussion, a source close to the Lakers center told ESPN.
“Obviously everyone saw him fire a headshot, but we just checked on him,” Lakers coach Darvin Ham said after the game. “He seems to be doing really well. That’s exactly the state he’s in. That is the state of affairs at the moment.”
