The Los Angeles Lakers have serious concerns over the condition of Anthony Davis amid reports he left Wednesday’s game with Golden State Warriors in a wheelchair.

Davis appeared to take an accidental hit to the side of the head from Kevon Looney in Wednesday’s playoff game against Golden State and was in clear discomfort when he was sat on the sidelines.

Chris Haynes then said on the live commentary that Davis left in a wheelchair after being subbed out and he did appear shaky on his feet as he tried to walk off the court on television.

Haynes later said on NBA on TNT that he had been told Davis took a hit to the temple but had avoided a concussion, He admitted it looked ‘really scary’.

Lakers coach Darvin Ham also moved to ease concerns in his post-game press conference, saying he checked on Davis in the locker room and he seemed to be ok.

‘Obviously everyone saw he took a shot to the head,’ Ham said. ‘I just checked in on him. He seems to be doing really good already.

‘That is where it is at, that is the status of it right now.’

ESPN’s NBA reporter Dave McMenamin claimed Warriors medics were waiting outside the Lakers locker room to find out if they were needed to assist Davis.

When he was speaking to the media, Ham had no further update on when he will learn more on how Davis is. ‘We just got done with the game,’ he said. 

McMenamin said Austin Davis of the Lakers said ‘I believe he’ll (Davis) play’ in Game 6 on Friday night.

But even so, if there are any concerns of a concussion then Davis now has to be a major doubt for Game 6 on Friday in Los Angeles. 

Davis finished with 23 points on 10-for-18 shooting, nine rebounds and three assists but didn’t block a shot. The Lakers lost the game 121-106.
