Russell Westbrook’s Cruel Honesty To Anthony Davis

Russell Westbrook’s job is to make Los Angeles Lakers better teammates. That includes helping them succeed out of court – even when injured, as was the case with Anthony Davis.

AD will be absent for at least 4 weeks after an MRI showing a strained MCL in his left knee. While the news could be much worse, the injury is still a blow to Los Angeles, who have not been able to deal with it thanks to a series of unstoppable developments in time.

A group of depressed Lakers – who also have multiplayer in health and safety protocols – have fallen into Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday, 110-92, after Jaden McDaniels fell on AD’s knee in the third round, causing Davis to limp in pain into the locker room.

On Sunday, in Davis’ hometown, the Lakers fought hard but lost Chicago Bulls, 115-110.

Then Westbrook addressed Davis’ knee sprain. He said that the best he can do, as a teammate, is to give morale support.

“Really hard. Whenever you see someone going down, they will have to miss some time, especially from the game they love to play. Really hard. I’ve been there and I just understand the emotional state. Just try to lift his spirits, stay upbeat and talk to him. Make sure he’s trying to win every day so he can come back healthy. ”

Westbrook, who had 20 points in the 9/19 shootout in Chicago, was also asked if he thought he had to shoulder a larger offensive burden for the Lakers while Davis was sidelined.

“Instinctively, that’s what you tell yourself. But you also have to read the game because the game will always tell you what to do… AD is obviously a huge part of our team, we have to find a way to play without him for a while. Something we have to adjust. “

The Lakers bought Westbrook because LeBron and AD wanted a third star to help ease the burden during a long season. Obviously, the intention is for all three stars to stay healthy. But whether Westbrook is up to the task or not will suddenly be put to a crucial test.
