Los Angeles Lakers center Anthony Davis suffered a knee injury during the team’s loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves and collapsed on his way to the locker room.

Davis suffered a left knee bruise in the third quarter of the game. He missed two games last week with left knee soreness. He also hurt his ankle in the first quarter but returned from that. Cameras showed Davis falling to the ground with trainers trying to help him.

LeBron James told reporters he asked Davis about his knee, and he said he’d find out tomorrow.

“My concern is always for his health,” James added. “You always wish for the best for any of your teammates but especially a guy like AD. So you wish for the best and leave it up to the man above’s hands.”
