Anthony Davis endured a difficult night in the LA Lakers' loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday, suffering two injuries during the game. He rolled his ankle while attempting to grab an offensive board. Davis survived that and returned to the court, but he ended up sustaining a knee contusion later on, with Jaden McDaniels falling on his leg.

Anthony Davis did not return after injuring his knee and appeared to be in serious pain as he walked back to the locker room to get some treatment. Nevertheless, as per ESPN's Dave McMenamin, a source familiar with the injury has said that Davis' injured left knee appears to have a "good structure" so far. Here's what McMenamin tweeted regarding the injury:

"Source familiar with Anthony Davis’ left knee injury tells ESPN, “so far all is in good structure, but want to take another image.”"

LA Lakers head coach Frank Vogel said the team had no updates regarding Anthony Davis' injury. He mentioned that they will find out more about his condition after conducting an MRI scan on the injured knee in Chicago on Saturday. The Lakers will travel to the East Coast to take on the Chicago Bulls on Sunday.

Frank Vogel tells @LakersReporter that AD saw the team doctor after the game, and he will get an MRI tomorrow."We'll know more at that time... Hopefully it's something minor and he can get back soon, but we'll find out tomorrow."

Anthony Davis' injury is a big blow for LA Lakers with the team already without several players due to COVID protocols

The LA Lakers have been marred by injuries and players entering COVID Health and Safety Protocols. The list includes Avery Bradley, Malik Monk, Austin Reaves, Dwight Howard, Talen Horton-Tucker and Kendrick Nunn. Nunn, meanwhile, has also been dealing with a knee bone bruise and is yet to make his season debut.

The LA Lakers were informed about Austin Reaves and Malik Monk's unavailability on the morning of their game against the T'Wolves. They also received a positive update later on, though, as Russell Westbrook tested out of health and safety protocols within 24 hours and was available to play in Minnesota.

Monk returned two negative tests after entering the league's health and safety protocols on Friday. However, he tested positive again and will remain sidelined.

With Anthony Davis likely to miss a few games after suffering knocks on his ankle and knee, the LA Lakers could be without up to eight players against the Chicago Bulls on Sunday.
