Despite Growing Number of Bumps and Bruises, Davis to Play in Game 6

I don’t know the NBA record for number of times a player appeared to get injured in one postseason only to return to the floor five minutes later, but Anthony Davis may be making a strong case.

On Friday night, the Los Angeles Lakers star big man suffered a right heal contusion in a Game 6 loss to the Miami Heat.

As his list of nagging lower body bumps and bruises continues to grow, Davis confirmed that he will “be fine on Sunday” for Game 6 despite the “painful” bruise. Davis initially suffered the injury in Game 5 against the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals and appears to be re-aggrevating the injury at least once per game.

Davis still managed to finish Game 5 with 28 points and 12 rebounds, as the duo of him and LeBron James went onto score over 80% of the Lakers 108 points. Meanwhile, Jimmy Butler led the way for the Heat on Friday with 35 points, 12 rebounds, and 11 assists in the 111-108 victory.

The Lakers have a chance to close out the series and bring home the organization’s 17th NBA championship on Sunday.
