However, Davis snapped that statement by declaring that there’s no way he’s missing the crucial contest.

The Lakers hold a strong 2-1 lead over the Phoenix Suns in their first-round series.
The 28-year-old Davis put up 34 points and 11 rebounds during Thursday’s Game 3 victory. The veteran collected 34 points, 10 boards and seven assists in Game 2.
Certainly, the Lakers need Davis’ services in the postseason. The All-Star, who was banged prior to the playoffs, put up 21.8 points, 7.9 boards and 3.1 assists per game during the 2020-21 regular season.
The Suns are also facing injury concerns with their own star in Chris Paul, who suffered a should injury in Game 1. The veteran hasn’t looked like himself in the first round.
Game 4 between the Suns and Lakers takes place on Sunday.
