Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis had a bit of a scare when he injured his left ankle in the fourth quarter of Thursday's 114-108 Game 4 victory over the Denver Nuggets.

The former No. 1 pick was in visible pain as he clutched his left ankle but played the remainder of the contest and expects to be in the lineup for Game 5.

"My ankle feels fine," Davis said postgame, according to Kyle Goon of the Orange County Register. "I've got tonight, tomorrow, before the game to get it back to where it is, but it's good enough to play. I rolled it pretty bad, but not too bad. I'll be fine."

However, Lakers head coach Frank Vogel wasn't as certain of Davis' status for Saturday.

"We'll have to see how it responds overnight, responds to treatment," Vogel said postgame. "Yeah, there's always concern with an injury like that. It was good for him to play through it, but we'll see how it responds overnight."

Davis continues to shine in his first Western Conference final. The big man led all scorers in Game 4 with 34 points as the Lakers put the Nuggets on the brink of elimination.

He's averaging 32.3 points, 6.5 boards, 2.5 assists, and 1.3 steals through the first four games of the series.
