Lakers News: Anthony Davis Gives Update On Groin Injury

Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis was just never able to get fully healthy following an Achilles and calf injury that robbed him of over half the 2020-21 season. Davis took over two months to return to the court and although he was able to finish out the regular season, injuries once again reared their heads as he hurt his knee and groin in the first round of the playoffs against the Phoenix Suns. The 28-year-old tried his best to play through the groin injury in Game 6, but ultimately had to sit halfway through the first quarter as he simply could not move out on the floor.

Lakers offseason preview: How Los Angeles can rebuild a championship roster around LeBron James, Anthony Davis

The Phoenix Suns didn't have to devote any attention to Andre Drummond in their series-clinching Game 6 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers. He didn't even see the floor, benched in favor of Montrezl Harrell and Marc Gasol, whom he had once replaced in the starting lineup. Drummond's scoring, rebounding and athleticism appealed to a Lakers team just trying to stay afloat in the middle of the season, so they gave him Gasol's job despite outscoring opponents by 13.4 points per 100 possessions when he shared the floor with LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
