An AD stan hoped he plays the next game like masked LeBron, “Please Anthony Davis, return with a mask. We need this version folks.”
A Lakers account remarked at the blood loss, “Anthony Davis after taking a shot to the face.”
Davis received praise for returning to the game after taking the hit, “And kids this is the day Anthony Davis remained in the game…”

Anthony Davis Playing Through Injury
A win tonight means the Lakers are officially a play-in team, earning the 9th seed from the New Orleans Pelicans. They would also just trail the Clippers in the 8th seed by 1.5 games, making their late-season push to the 6th seed a reality. With the brevity of games left on the schedule, the Lakers cannot afford any losses.
The Lakers intended on earning the 6th seed by the end of the season and that dream could be a reality if they win tonight. They’ll be 2 games behind the Warriors if they pick up a win tonight. With LeBron still expected to be out for a while, any misstep by the Lakers could cost them strong postseason positioning.
