Anthony Davis on his injuries: 'My training methods were top tier'
© Provided by HoopsHype When asked if the extended offseason will allow Davis, 29, to re-evaluate his training methods in hopes of staying healthy in the future, the big man pushed back. “No,” Davis said. “To be honest, my training methods were top tier. I can’t control stepping on someone’s foot and I can’t control someone falling into my leg. It’s not like I’m out of shape and I f—ing did some crazy s— or it was anything I could control.”

Malik Monk: “It kind of felt a little better with the flow of me and Tay-Low getting consistent touches, but those three guys (LeBron, AD, Russ), we missed them out there.” Adds it was “fun” to play with all the young guys. – 12:58 AM Kamenetzky Brothers @KamBrothers

“I average 40 points a night without LeBron, AD and Russ. Do the math, Pelinka.” – Talen Horton-Tucker, postgame… I hope. AK – 12:57 AM StatMuse @statmuse

Final: Warriors 128, Lakers 112

The Lakers drop to 31-49 sans LeBron, AD, Russ and Melo. Talen Horton-Tucker scored a career-high 40 points. Malik Monk had 24 points. The young guys played with spirit and energy tonight. Two games left.

Up next: vs. OKC tomorrow. – 12:26 AM Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews

After one, Warriors trail the (LeBron, AD, and Russ-less) Lakers 32-27. Golden State has committed six turnovers for 10 LA points, and are 2-2 from the free throw line compared to LA’s 10-11. – 10:36 PM Jovan Buha @jovanbuha

First quarter: Lakers 32, Warriors 27

The Lakers — playing without LeBron, Russ, AD and Melo — had an impressive showing in the first quarter. Talen Horton-Tucker leads them with 11 points. Austin Reaves has 10 points. LA’s effort, especially defensively, has been noticeable. – 10:35 PM Kyle Goon @kylegoon

Updated story on LeBron, AD, Russ and Melo missing tonight’s game: ocregister.com/2022/04/07/lak… – 10:35 PM Mike Trudell @LakersReporter

With no pressure on this game, and LeBron/AD/Westbrook/Melo all out, LAL have come out both loose and aggressive, taking an 11-4 lead 3 minutes in at Golden State.

Starters: THT, Monk, Reaves, Johnson and Howard – 10:11 PM CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22

So the Warriors are trailing Los Angeles 10-4 early. Very sloppy start for them. Keep in mind, LeBron and AD aren’t playing tonight. – 10:10 PM Donovan Mitchell @spidadmitchell

Frank Vogel says LeBron, AD and Westbrook haven’t been ruled out for tomorrow’s game. Says they realize it’s the last home game and fan appreciation day. – 8:32 PM Kyle Goon @kylegoon

Frank Vogel says Anthony Davis has been dealing with plantar fasciitis in his foot; Russ’ shoulder injury has been bothering him, and Melo has been dealing with a lingering stomach bug.

None of them have been ruled out for the season. – 8:32 PM Kamenetzky Brothers @KamBrothers

I will be extremely disappointed if, even with LeBron/AD/Russ/Melo out and the Lakers out of the play-in, Frank Vogel declines to treat his starting lineup like a government secret that can’t be revealed until the last moment possible. AK – 8:32 PM Jovan Buha @jovanbuha

Carmelo Anthony (non-COVID illness) joins LeBron, AD and Russ as being out tonight in Golden State. – 8:30 PM Mike Trudell @LakersReporter

Carmelo Anthony (non-COVID illness) is out tonight, joining LeBron, AD and Westbrook. – 8:28 PM Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA

The Lakers are sitting LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook, raising the possibility that their once-hopeful superteam experiment has ended before it ever achieved anything of note: ocregister.com/2022/04/07/lak… – 4:23 PM Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles

Lakers: LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook out tonight against Warriors sportando.basketball/en/lakers-lebr… – 2:57 PM Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba

The Golden State Warriors could get an easy victory tonight with LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, and Anthony Davis out for the Lakers. – 2:19 PM Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina

Lakers rule out Anthony Davis (right mid-foot sprain), LeBron James (left ankle sprain) and Russell Westbrook (right shoulder soreness) for tonight’s game at Golden State. – 2:16 PM Bill Oram @billoram

No LeBron, Russ, AD tonight, Lakers say, as the most underachieving superteam in history plays out the string. – 2:16 PM Kyle Goon @kylegoon

The Big Three are out tonight against Golden State:

– LeBron with ankle soreness

– Anthony Davis with foot soreness

– Russell Westbrook with right shoulder soreness

The trio played 21 games together this season (11-10), and that might be all they ever play together. – 2:16 PM Brad Turner @BA_Turner

More on this storyline

“The good thing is, what people don’t know, is that the doctors actually told me that you’re lucky. Our team doctor said if you weren’t doing the work that you were supposed to be doing this summer, both could have been worse,” Davis said. “I could have one, f—ed up my foot way more. Or I could have torn some s— in my knee. So it’s a positive for me, knowing that I put in a lot of work this summer and I prevented catastrophic injuries from happening to my body. “So, people can say what they want to say, but I know what I do every summer to get ready for an 82-game season.” -via ESPN / April 8, 2022 Davis missed 17 straight games from late December until late January after suffering an MCL sprain in his left knee. Then in mid-February, he had the foot injury, causing him to miss 18 straight games. But those injuries, Davis said, do not make him injury prone. Both stemmed from unfortunate circumstances that would have hurt any player. “I had no injuries this year where it was, ‘Damn, that’s AD’s fault,’” Davis said. “Someone falls into my leg, sprains my MCL. The same exact thing [Kevin Durant] had.” -via ESPN / April 8, 2022 Harrison Faigen: Frank Vogel says that LeBron wouldn’t be ready even if the Lakers weren’t already eliminated. He says AD has been dealing with plantar fasciitis -via Twitter @hmfaigen / April 7, 2022
