Anthony Davis has been listed as questionable for Game 5 with a sprained left ankle and could be on a minutes restriction tonight.

The Lakers vs Nuggets series has had a lot of big moments and highlights. A lot of them are centered around LeBron James, Jamal Murray, and Nikola Jokic. While they may have the spotlight, AD has been crunching numbers and leading the scoring with 32.3 ppg in the series.

Anthony Davis finished Game 4 with 34 points, shooting about 67% from the field. AD was having another one of his big scoring nights, which now we have become accustomed to.

Midway in the 4th Quarter, AD landed awkwardly after a jump shot, which makes us all wonder about his availability for tonight’s matchup.

Lakers vs Nuggets Game 5 tonight

The Nuggets take on the top-seeded Lakers for Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals matchup tonight. The Nuggets are yet again backed into a corner, being down 3-1. We’ve seen the Nuggets erase the same deficit twice these playoffs, making an NBA record by doing so.

With the chances of AD not playing Game 5 existing, this would be a perfect opportunity for the Nuggets to strike and extend their postseason journey a little longer.

The Lakers on the other hand would look to seal the series and make the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010.

Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals takes place tonight at 9 PM ET.
