    Portland Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard is fouled against the Los Angeles LakersDamian Lillard top-scored with 25 points in the Portland Trail Blazers' victory over the Los Angeles Lakers

    The Los Angeles Lakers fell to their fifth defeat of the season, losing 105-90 to the Portland Trail Blazers.

    The depleted Lakers, who were without star player LeBron James because of an abdominal strain, lost Anthony Davis after just seven minutes with illness.

    The Blazers led by 34 points at one stage with Damian Lillard top-scoring with 25 points.

    Lakers coach Frank Vogel said Davis did not have Covid-19 and had "woken up with a bit of a stomach bug".

    "He came back in and said his thumb felt pretty good, good enough to play, then he went and threw up in the back," he said.

    "He still wanted to give it a go, but by the time tip-off came around he had already thrown up four times. He wanted to see if getting out on the floor would change it, but wasn't able to go."
