Anthony Davis puts coaching Kyle Kuzma over getting blood on his sweater
In the game against the Heat, Anthony Davis was seen coaching his teammates whenever there was a timeout. In one timeout, AD was seen talking to Kyle Kuzma and advising him about something.
However, Kuzma was bleeding and seemed to get some blood on AD’s sweater. Montrezl Harrell came and pulled Davis away, warning him about the blood. Davis paid no heed and went back to talking to Kuz.

AD would be out of the Lakers’ lineup for the next four weeks, as he makes his recovery from an Achilles injury. While Davis is not on the court, he makes his presence felt from the bench, as he keeps insights during the games. In the loss against the Nets, Davis was seen talking to LBJ, discussing the game and what can be done.
The Lakers are missing Davis’s presence on the court, but they’d hope he makes a full recovery before playoffs come near. AD being healthy would be a key factor in the Lakers’ hopes of winning back-to-back championships.
