Davis finally absent for a month

While doctors’ first diagnosis of Anthony Davis reported an absence of two to three weeks, the Lakers star interior, again examined on Thursday, will finally be out for a month.

The verdict concerning Anthony Davis is ultimately heavier than expected. The first diagnosis was two to three weeks of absence for the star interior of the Los Angeles Lakers. Unfortunately for the former pivot of the New Orleans Pelicans and the California franchise reigning NBA champion, Davis will not be out for two to three weeks, as initially announced, but one month. The player was in fact again examined this Thursday by the doctors of the Lakers, who revised their judgment and extended the period of unavailability of the teammate of LeBron James, said coach Franck Vogel on the sidelines of the defeat of his team at Staples Center against the Brooklyn Nets (109-98). “He will be absent for four weeks. We really want him to be able to put this injury totally behind him. We will be careful so that it is fully restored when it returns to the courts. The number 3 of the Lakers, already very uncertain for the All Star Game on March 7, can therefore this time definitively give up this all-star game, he who should have been part of the major five in the West within the team whose captain will be James himself.

Davis also hit a calf

“Unibrown”, literally the single eyebrow, its official nickname, will also miss the upcoming reunion with last year’s finalist the Miami Heat as well as other shocks that await the Lakers in the coming weeks, especially against the untouchable leader of the conference Utah, the double Golden State champion or the Portland Trail Blazers of a Damian Lillard currently on a cloud. Davis, victim of tendinosis (degeneration of the collagen of the tendon caused by a tendonitis that has become chronic, which weakens the tendon) in an Achilles tendon but also affected a calf, had worsened his injury last week against Denver. He will finally not play again before mid-March. Not at all good news for the jazz dolphin in the West.
