The Los Angeles Lakers are deeply concerned about Anthony Davis’ condition amid reports he left Wednesday’s game with the Golden State Warriors in a wheelchair.
Davis appeared to have taken an accidental blow to the side of the head from Kevon Looney in Wednesday’s playoff game against Golden State and was clearly uncomfortable sitting on the sidelines.
Chris Haynes then said in the live commentary that Davis had left in a wheelchair after being knocked out and appeared shaky on his feet as he tried to walk off the field on television.
Haynes later said in NBA on TNT that he was told Davis had received a blow to the temple but avoided a concussion. He admitted it looked “really scary.”
Lakers coach Darvin Ham also took a step to assuage concerns during his post-game press conference, saying he checked on Davis in the locker room and he appeared to be fine.

“Obviously everyone saw him get shot in the head,” Ham said. “I just checked him in. He seems to be doing really well already.
“That’s where it is, that’s the status of it right now.”
ESPN’s NBA reporter Dave McMenamin claimed Warriors medics waited outside the Lakers locker room to find out if they were needed to help Davis.
Speaking to media, Ham had no further update on when he will find out more about how Davis is doing. “We just finished the game,” he said.
McMenamin said that the Lakers’ Austin Davis said, “I believe he (Davis) will play” in Game 6 on Friday night.
Still, if there’s any concern about a concussion, Davis should now be a big doubt for Game 6 on Friday in Los Angeles.
Davis finished with 23 points on 10-for-18 shooting, nine rebounds and three assists, but did not block a shot. The Lakers lost the game 121-106.
