Los Angeles Lakers superstar Anthony Davis will miss his fifth straight game Saturday night against the Houston Rockets.

The big man continues to recover from a bruised gluteus maximus, and the next game he will be able to return will be against the Boston Celtics on Monday.

The Lakers have gone 3-1 in Davis’ absence, with their only loss coming in a narrow 119-118 defeat to the Orlando Magic.

Davis is averaging a team-high 27.1 points, 9.4 rebounds and 2.6 blocks on the season.
