NBA Playoffs 2020: Anthony Davis says 'I'll be fine' after rolling his left ankle 'pretty bad' in Game 4

With 6:44 minutes to go in the fourth quarter of Game 4 against the Denver Nuggets, Anthony Davis appeared to be in a lot of discomfort after rolling his left ankle.

Over the course of the ensuing Lakers' timeout, he walked it off and eventually played out the rest of the game, helping the Lakers secure a 114-106 win to take a 3-1 series lead.

Davis was the game's top-scorer with 34 points on 10-of-15 shooting, 14 of which came on a perfect first quarter (6-6 FGs).

Lakers' head coach Frank Vogel didn't provide a clear status update on Davis' ankle but said "there's always concern with an injury like that" and that they would see how AD responds overnight.

"Ankle feels fine," Davis told reporters post-game. "I got tonight, tomorrow, before the [next] game to get it back to where it is, but good enough to play."

"Rolled it pretty bad, but not too bad. I'll be fine"

Game 5, a chance for the Lakers to advance to their first NBA Finals since 2010, will be played after a day's break on Sunday, September 27th at 6:30 a.m. IST.
