Given how bad that fall looked, Davis should consider himself lucky that it wasn’t worse. There are few things scarier than when basketball players fall like Davis did.
I always hold my breath whenever I see that. It’s a great way to get seriously hurt. The sound of it makes me cringe every time.
Luckily, it sounds like Davis will be fine, but might miss a couple games.
Anthony Davis was able to walk in the player tunnel at Staples Center as the initial shock of the fall wore off, a source tells ESPN. The plan is for Davis to undergo an MRI on Wednesday. He is expected to miss the upcoming road trip in DAL & OKC to stay back and rehab.

All things considered, he should consider himself very lucky that it didn’t turn out much worse.
