Los Angeles, January 9: Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis escaped serious injury and will travel with the NBA's Western Conference leaders on their upcoming road trip.
Davis suffered a gluteus maximus contusion in Tuesday's win over the New York Knicks after an MRI on his back returned negative.
The six-time All-Star is set to be listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Dallas Mavericks.
The Lakers were left sweating on the fitness of Davis, who exited the 117-87 victory against the lowly Knicks following a heavy fall.
Lakers head coach Frank Vogel revealed the initial diagnosis was a "bruised tailbone" after the game against the Knicks.
In his first season with the Lakers (30-7), Davis has been averaging 27.1 points, 9.4 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game.
