Anthony Davis cleared; has 8 points, 10 rebounds in Lakers' win vs. Warriors

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Anthony Davis was cleared and played in the Los Angeles Lakers' preseason game Wednesday night against the Golden State Warriors.

Davis finished with 8 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists in 28 minutes in the Lakers' 126-93 victory.

Davis tested his sprained right thumb in practice Tuesday and said he felt good after the Lakers' morning shootaround Wednesday.

"Thumb feels good," Davis said after shootaround. "We didn't do much contact stuff, but we did enough where I can test it out and see how it feels, and it felt really good."

The Lakers' All-Star big man injured his thumb in Saturday's 91-77 loss to the Brooklyn Nets in Shenzhen, China, and was held out of Monday's 104-98 preseason win over the Warriors.

Davis said he was relieved when an MRI on his thumb came back clean.

"I have had some hairline fractures and stuff like that in my hand before, so I knew that was just a jam," Davis said about the MRI. "Obviously just want to be cautious, but it was relief. Obviously you didn't want anything bad to happen where I miss time. Thank God it's not serious."
