WATCH: Anthony Davis throws down dunk, appears to suffer hamstring injury

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Milwaukee Bucks

To say that the Los Angeles Lakers need Anthony Davis fully healthy after an injury-plagued 2020-21 campaign would be an understatement. That’s especially true with star forward LeBron James having played in just six of the team’s 16 games this season.

Unfortunately, it appears that AD suffered a hamstring injury during Wednesday night’s game against the defending champion Milwaukee Bucks.

It came after the All-Star big man threw down a massive dunk over two-time NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Anthony Davis would ultimately hobble off the court after limping around. As of the start of the fourth quarter, there was no further update on his status.

Davis, 28, has been pretty much the only player keeping Los Angeles afloat in James’ absence. He’s averaging 28.0 points, 12.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists over the past four games.

Interestingly enough, Davis was on the injury report heading into this game with a thumb ailment. Again, it could be a continuation of the injuries that have plagued the star big man over the years.
