Anthony Davis admitted he feels right shoulder discomfort on virtually every play Sunday night, following a 113-104 home loss to the Toronto Raptors.
Davis, 26, paced the Los Angeles Lakers with 27 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and four blocks.
Head coach Frank Vogel said he didn’t feel any need to bring AD out of the game after he aggraveted the injury.
“There’s really never a play I don’t feel it,” Davis said.
He aggravated his shoulder on one of those swats on Pascal Siakam, causing the joint to droop as he made his way back up the court.
“I’m going to go out there and play. I try not to let it affect my game,” said Davis, who hasn’t missed any games this season because of the injury. “I just play through it and then worry about taking care of it after the game.”
Lakers coach Frank Vogel said Davis’ shoulder has “been fine” but acknowledged that he tweaked it Sunday.
“Obviously, we saw that play [against Siakam],” Vogel said. “Medical team didn’t feel like he needed to come out.”
