Los Angeles Lakers center Anthony Davis is listed as probable for Game 6 against the Golden State Warriors on Friday night, according to the official NBA injury list published Thursday evening.

Davis sustained an apparent head injury in Game 5 on Wednesday, but his designation on the injury report states merely that he is dealing with a right foot ailment.

Lakers coach Darvin Ham said on Thursday of Davis, “He’s feeling great. Our medical staff gave us a great update. … (He is ) not showing any signs of anything.”
