Lakers' Anthony Davis could miss Game 6 vs. Warriors due to head injury

Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis could miss Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Golden State Warriors due to a head injury suffered in the fourth quarter Wednesday night at Chase Center.

Davis, 30, did not return to the floor in Game 5 after Warriors big man Kevon Looney elbowed him in the head. AD sat on the bench for couple of minutes and never let go of his head. He was taken to the locker room shortly after and was ruled out for the remainder of the contest.

Fate of the Lakers vs Warriors semifinal already decided by 'destiny dog'

Chris Haynes, an NBA Insider for TNT, reported that Davis was escorted out of the arena in a wheelchair after the apparent concussion and will undergo further evaluation.

Lakers head coach Darvin Ham said during his postgame press conference that Davis was already doing much better.

"He took a shot to the head," Ham said. "He seems to be doing really good already. That's where he's at and the status of it right now."

Anthony Davis out for the series?

Even a mild concussion can take up to a week to heal, so Davis is in danger of not only missing Game 6, but a potential Game 7, as well.

The dangerous play did not get called a foul and Looney did not receive any type of penalty for flagrantly elbowing Davis' head.

Looney, 27, is racking up dirty plays. He elbowed Sacramento Kings center Domantas Sabonis in the first round and gave him a black eye, but also went unpenalized.

Prior to the injury, Davis had 23 points on 10-for-18 shooting from the floor, plus nine rebounds in 32 minutes of action.
