The Los Angeles Lakers will now have to move forward without the services of superstar big man Anthony Davis, who will be out of action for multiple weeks due to a foot injury, as the Lakers try to turn their disappointing season around.
Lakers star Lebron James spoke about the Lakers’ moving forward, and the loss of Davis.
“It’s definitely disappointing to see him have to go through it. Especially the work that he’s put into it” James said, according to Spectrum. “Doesn’t cheat the game. Shows up, prepares himself, goes out and, obviously, he’s been dominant this year. To have this setback right now — I know it can be tough on him, for sure. Just trying whatever I can to keep his mind fresh.
“A minor setback before a major comeback. We’re going to try and hold down the fort for as long as we can until we get our number one guy back. I hope he just has a clear mind and takes his time and understands that it’s just temporary.”
“It’s gonna be a collective group effort,” LeBron said. “It’s always been health with us since we all joined forces … It’s always about health. If we can stay healthy or close to as healthy as possible… we’re going to give ourselves a chance to win cause we’re going to play hard and play the right way. Obviously, health is wealth.”
“Whoever available to make plays, they gotta make plays,” LeBron added.
