When Los Angeles Lakers superstar Anthony Davis suffered a groin strain in Game 4 of their best-of-seven against the Phoenix Suns, most expected him to miss Game 5 as a result.

However, it looks like there’s a real chance he will suit up on Tuesday evening in Arizona.

Davis has been a sort of barometer for the Purple and Gold so far in the series. He played poorly when the team lost Game 1 and Game 4, but was dominant in the squad’s two victories.

In addition to his groin strain, Davis has also been dealing with a sprained left knee he sustained in Game 3.

Starting shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope also got hurt in Game 3 and missed Sunday’s game as a result. However, he will be in the lineup for Game 5.

Tuesday’s contest will be pivotal for both teams, as the winner of a Game 5 usually tends to win the series when it is tied at 2-2.

If the Lakers win tonight, they could then clinch the series on Thursday at Staples Center.
