Lakers’ Anthony Davis Could Miss Opener



Los Angeles Lakers superstar big man Anthony Davis could miss the team’s re-opener due to an eye injury, according to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin.

Davis was injured when he was poked in the right eye by Orlando Magic guard Michael Carter-Williams during their scrimmage on Saturday, and did not practice on Tuesday.

“He’s day-to-day and while he’s still dealing with discomfort, there is some concern that he could potentially not play Thursday,” Lakers coach Frank Vogel said. “But we’re hopeful that he does, and we’ll see how that plays out. He’s going to continue to be evaluated each day.”

Davis has averaged 26.7 points, 9.4 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 2.4 blocks per game this season for the Lakers.
