Anthony Davis will sit out Thursday’s game against the Detroit Pistons with an injured right quad, the team said

Davis was asked about his right leg, which he seemed to prefer in Wednesday’s 107-106 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, and he downplayed any ailments he had

“I had a little brush sting on my knee from the place and it was like bothering my tights, just rubbing them, so I just tried to pull them off my tights,” he said. “But I’m fine it’s physically fine I’m fine and we still have a long season ahead of us “

The Lakers have got off to a hot start With their 14-5 record they are number 2 in the Western Conference

Davis averages 219 points, his lowest average rating since his sophomore season, and 88 rebounds, his lowest rate since his rookie season. His 19 blocks per game is also his lowest rate since his rookie year
It will be Davis’ third missed game of the season, with all three being part of consecutive situations The Lakers won the previous two games without him

LeBron James, who has played for the Lakers in every game this season, is considered questionable due to a left ankle sprain he sustained earlier in the season
