Lakers star Anthony Davis after suffering a concerning injury in Game 5 against the Warriors.

The Los Angeles Lakers had the chance to come away with a series-clinching Game 5 victory to eliminate the Golden State Warriors on their home floor. That didn’t happen, and they may now have some serious concerns regarding star forward Anthony Davis coming out of Wednesday’s game.

Davis played well in the first half of Wednesday’s game, scoring 18 points in the first half. Unfortunately, his night was cut short due to an injury that could leave his status in doubt for the rest of the series.

The eight-time All-Star took an inadvertent elbow to the back of the head from Warriors center Kevon Looney in the fourth quarter. You could instantly see that this affected him, grabbing his head and wobbling slightly as he walked off the floor.

Davis would not return to the game, which certainly played a role in the Warriors holding onto their fourth-quarter lead to take home the Game 5 victory.

TNT sideline reporter Chris Haynes offered an update on Davis later in the fourth quarter, saying that he “didn’t look as stable” as he walked to the locker room.

Haynes then reported that Davis actually needed the assistance of a wheelchair to get back into the locker room.

It is obviously a huge concern for the Lakers to see Davis exit like this. Many around the NBA world offered their thoughts on the injury for Davis.

While this seems like the worst-case scenario for Lakers fans, there is at least some hope that Davis could play in Game 6 of the series on Friday night. Lakers head coach Darvin Ham offered a promising update on Davis after the game.

“He took a shot to the head,” Ham told reporters. “But I just checked in on him. He seems to be doing really good already. That is the status of it right now.”
