Anthony Davis is known for being one of the most injury prone players in the NBA, even having the nickname “street clothes” donned upon him. It seems like he averages at least one injury scare per game. This season alone he’s had a knee injury scare, a hand injury scare, and now a toilet injury scare too.
Frank Vogel Details Why Anthony Davis was Throwing Up Four Times Before and During Lakers Loss to Trail Blazers
As Lakers were getting destroyed by the Blazers early, Anthony Davis abruptly left after playing 7 minutes in the first quarter. It was later announced that Anthony Davis had a stomach illness, and would not return. After the game Lakers Coach Frank Vogel detailed just how serious his stomach ailment was, and it’s surprising that AD even played after hearing what he said.
According to Frank Vogel, Anthony Davis threw up 4 times before tip-off of Lakers vs Blazers, but decided to play through his stomach ailment. During the game Anthony Davis was throwing up in the locker room as well, before they ruled him out for the game. It sounds like he was suffering a bad case of food poisoning or a virus, but no official details on what was causing his stomach discomfort.
Social Media Reacts to Anthony Davis Throwing Up 4 Times Before Lakers vs Blazers
When the Lakers are going through turmoil, fans always use the opportunity to throw salt on open wounds. The trend continued as Lakers fans reacted to Anthony Davis barfing 4 times during Lakers vs Blazers with some hilarious jokes about him being sick of Frank Vogel’s strange rotations, and Lakers poor performances.
Reports say Anthony Davis woke up with his stomach issue, which indicates it must of been something that happened the day before. Hopefully it’s not anything that will keep him out a few games, because Lakers are already decimated by injuries. Lebron James, Trevor Ariza, Kendrick Nunn, and THT are all already injured.
Would Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook be able lead Lakers to wins without AD and Lebron? It’s still early in the season, but Lakers know first hand from last year how losses piling up at the beginning of the season can make things tougher in the end.
