Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis has a sprained left knee and is questionable to play in Game 4 against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday, according to coach Frank Vogel, although the All-Star power forward has no doubt. that he will be on the court.
“There’s no chance he won’t play tomorrow,” Davis said of Sunday’s game (3:30 pm ET, ESPN Deportes).
Davis led all players with 34 points in Game 3 of the Western Conference first-round series, but was seen limping during the game and later said he may have hyperextended during an awkward landing.
However, AD was the Lakers player who played the most minutes in the 109-95 victory that gave the defending champions a 2-1 lead against the Suns, posting his second straight game with 34 points.
Davis battled with a calf strain and Achilles tendinosis in his right leg in the regular season that limited him to 36 games. His average of 21.8 points per game was his lowest since his second NBA season in 2013-14, and his 7.9 rebounds per challenge is the lowest of his career.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who came out of Game 3 with a bruised left quadriceps, is also questionable to play.
