Portland – caused stomach ailment on the night of the Los Angeles Lakers star, Anthony Davis, which ended prematurely during Saturday night’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers, according to the team.
Davis was knocked out with 4:51 left in the first quarter. He went straight to the locker room and never came back.
According to a team spokesperson, the disease is unrelated to COVID-19.
Los Angeles disqualified her early in the second quarter. The Lakers edged out by 11 points in the seven minutes they played, as Davis was 1-5 from the field and added two points, three rebounds and one foul.
The Lakers were 36-14 behind the Blazers after the first quarter.
Davis entered the game as questionable due to a sprained right thumb in Thursday’s loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Prior to the game, Lakers coach Frank Vogel credited Davis’ mentality with playing despite his discomfort this season, having missed 36 of last year’s 72 games due to various injuries.
“I know this year he’s been very upset about the situation last year and the amount of time lost,” Vogel said. “So everything 50-50, whether it’s been in or out this year so far, has been, ‘I play unless I can’t play.’ He’s not happy with the amount of time he lost. Last year. So. If he can. Playing without major restrictions, there will be.”
