Lakers F Anthony Davis out with nausea, headache

Anthony Davis

Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis will not play in Tuesday’s game against the Golden State Warriors because of nausea and a headache, just two days after taking a blow near the left eye in a game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

It is the second time in three weeks Davis took a blow to the area of his left eye. He played just one quarter in both of those games, with the previous contest taking place March 16 against the Golden State Warriors.

According to Los Angeles head coach Darvin Ham, Davis is not in concussion protocol.

“He showed up trying to play but he just couldn’t get over the headache and the nausea,” Ham said.

Davis, 31, is having an otherwise healthy season, scoring 24.5 points with 12.6 assists per game. He has played 74 games, one shy of his career best set twice when he was with the New Orleans Pelicans.

In 734 career games (727 starts) for the Pelicans and Lakers, Davis has averaged 24.0 points and 10.6 rebounds.

With Davis on the court Sunday, the Lakers ended the first quarter with a 37-33 lead but were overwhelmed without him and lost 127-117. The Lakers also lost the earlier game against the Warriors after leading through one quarter.

Los Angeles also was without LeBron James on Sunday because of flu-like symptoms. He is a game-time decision Tuesday.

The Lakers (45-34) and Warriors (43-35) both have clinched spots in the Western Conference play-in tournament, but the Lakers are just half a game behind the No. 8 Sacramento Kings.

The Nos. 7 and 8 seeds meet in the play-in tournament to earn an official playoff spot. The loser of that game must face the winner of the game between the Nos. 9 and 10 seeds to land the last playoff spot.

Including Tuesday, the Lakers have three games remaining in the regular season.
