With a minute left in the first quarter of Game 5, Anthony Davis landed awkwardly on his right foot and quickly went down to the floor. After being looked at with trainers, it was straight to the bench.
Early in the second quarter, ESPN’s Rachel Nichols reported that Davis had re-aggravated a right heel contusion, was eligible to return and had been pacing the sidelines during the break.
Lakers' diagnosis on Anthony Davis is that he re-aggravated his right heel contusion; he's available to return.
