Davis would be listed as a probable for Game 6 against the Golden State Warriors.

"It's huge," Ham said. "He's the focal point of what we're trying to do on both sides of the ball, and for us in general, our success rate. So that was great news.

Davis was hurt by an unintentional shot to the head from Golden State's Kevon Looney midway through the fourth quarter of the Warriors' 121–106 win in San Francisco.

Davis held his head with a smile on the bench before heading to the locker room after the play with 7:43 remaining. He and Looney battled for position in the paint on a lap driven by the Lakers' DeAngelo Russell.
