AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersDavis’ first season with the Lakers has been a smashing success so far: He’s averaged a team-best 26.4 points and 9.4 rebounds with 2.4 blocks in 55 games. He’s one of the top contenders for Defensive Player of the Year and a possible first-team All-NBA honoree when the votes come in.Vogel has stumped loudly for award season recognition for Davis, who helped power the Lakers to a 49-14 record prior to the hiatus.“Anthony Davis is the most versatile and dominant defender in the game,” he said. “It’s that simple. He’s the best rim protector. He can switch out and guard all positions on the perimeter. He’s elite with his hands. And he just has a skill set that’s unlike anybody else in the NBA.”He had already accumulated 9 points and 9 rebounds in the first quarter of the Saturday scrimmage when he checked out with his injury. Missing Davis would only further hamper a top-of-the-West Lakers team that is without feisty defender Avery Bradley and playmaking guard Rajon Rondo.The Lakers have tried to be as cautious as possible for potential injuries. LeBron James, Dwight Howard and Kyle Kuzma were also held out of Monday’s scrimmage primarily out of precaution. Both James and Kuzma practiced on Tuesday, while Howard was held out of contact work with knee soreness. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. >> As teammates flew around the court at the Coronado Springs convention center on Tuesday morning, Anthony Davis had a courtside seat. The 27-year-old donned a ballcap and dark sunglasses, even though the Lakers were holding practice indoors.Davis has already missed a scrimmage after being poked in the eye by Michael Carter-Williams when the Lakers played the Magic on Saturday and was not active for Tuesday’s practice. Now, Davis’ dimmed view is a concern for the Lakers in their re-opener against the Clippers on Thursday night, which he might not play.“He’s day to day and while he’s still dealing with discomfort, there is some concern that he could potentially not play Thursday,” Vogel said. “But we’re hopeful that he does and we’ll see how that plays out.”The injury is not believed to seriously have affected his vision, but it has caused Davis discomfort in the last few days. The Clippers, who have a 2-1 record against their cross-hall rivals this season, aren’t working with a full deck either. Patrick Beverley and Montrezl Harrell have taken excused absences for family reasons, as did Lou Williams who is serving out a 10-day quarantine after it was revealed he took a detour to the Magic City club while away from the bubble. Landry Shamet and Ivica Zubac were late-arriving players who are still getting up to speed. For much of their time in the bubble, the Clippers have only had 10 active players.
