Davis left the game early in the first quarter due to a non-COVID illness. His status in relation to the Raptors remains unknown.
The current hot streak of Anthony Davis on the court is over.
The big man left Tuesday’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, which ended 116-102, in the first quarter with flu-like symptoms.
This ended Davis’ incredible run, which included back-to-back games with 40 points and 10 rebounds and nine games in a row with at least 25 points and 10 rebounds.
The Lakers provided updates on AD’s illness after the game, stating that it was not COVID but rather a high fever that prevented him from playing:
Davis played the Cavs for the first 8:07 of the game before leaving, going straight to the locker room, and never coming back.
The broadcast said Davis had started to feel sick on Tuesday morning.
He tried to get through it but only played part of the first quarter before going down.
Davis has only missed two games this season, but his status for Wednesday’s back-to-back Lakers games in Toronto will be uncertain.

Before this season, the team also had to deal with flu-like symptoms, which affected a number of players, including LeBron James, and caused them to miss games.
Davis being kept away from the team could keep the team healthy enough to finish this stretch strong and prevent another situation like that.
