Anthony Davis sat out Thursday night’s loss to the Detroit Pistons due to a bruised right quad.

Davis was asked about his right leg, which he seemed to be favoring in Wednesday’s 107-106 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, and he downplayed any discomfort he was experiencing.

“I had a little brush burn on my knee from the court and it was like bothering me on my tights, just rubbing against it, so I just tried to pull them tights up off of it,” he said. “But I feel physically fine. I feel fine, and we have a long season to go.”

Davis is averaging 21.9 points, his lowest scoring average since his second season, and 8.8 rebounds, his lowest rate since his rookie season. His 1.9 blocks per game is also his lowest rate since his rookie year.

It marked Davis’ third missed game of the season, with all three as part of back-to-back situations. The Lakers won the two previous games without him.
