Los Angeles Lakers center Anthony Davis knows he has a long history of dealing with injuries throughout his 10-year NBA career. Now, he hopes to stay healthy for the entire 2022-23 season.

This is just wishful thinking, but it’s a goal Davis should strive to achieve. While injuries are out of every player’s control, head coach Darvin Ham can also limit his minutes in games with a double-digit lead.

During NBA Media Week, the eight-time All-Star expressed his enthusiasm to reporters for next season. “I’m so excited that I’ve got goosebumps just thinking about this year,” said Anthony Davis.

“I’m looking forward to a healthy year and doing what I know we can do,” continued the 2020 NBA champion. All he can do is take the right precautions to avoid another major injury.

Last season, Anthony Davis only appeared in 40 games due to an MCL sprain and ankle injury. In those games as a starter, he averaged 23.2 points, 9.9 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.2 steals, and 2.3 blocks per game.

Furthermore, former Lakers head coach Frank Vogel — fired back in April — had the three-time blocks champion in for 35 minutes per game last season.

In the end, players will admit that several injuries come down to luck. When Anthony Davis averaged 36.4 minutes in the 2017-18 season, he still appeared in 75 games during the regular season.

On October 26, 2021, in the Lakers’ 125-121 overtime win against the San Antonio Spurs, Davis scored a season-high 35 points in 42 minutes of action. He ended his performance shooting 15-of-31 (48.4%) from the field.

“I went into this summer focusing on strengthening my body,” continued Davis. “I have to be on the court and at my best to put us in position to be our best. I’m ready to do that.”

Davis awaits a clean bill of health for the entire 2022-23 season. It’s easier said than done, but the 10-year veteran can pull it off.

Fans also wonder if Davis, LeBron James, and Russell Westbrook can stay healthy together. That’s a completely different story.

At 29 years old, Anthony Davis will be fighting another uphill battle next season.
