Bottom Line: Full go for playoff availability and performance levels. Low re-injury risk.

Anthony Davis has a reputation as a frequent flyer on the injury report, but this postseason he is shaping up to contradict that pattern. He’s looked good since returning from his Achilles injury, and it reportedly hasn’t been bothering him since he ramped back up. Don’t expect that to affect him much during their playoff run.

He’s now listed with a groin strain. While having that occur this close to the start of the postseason is definitely not desired, the good news is that the severity sounds low. The Lakers appear confident that he’ll be ready for the playoffs, and we have no reason to suspect otherwise.
