Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis is "good to go" for Game 5 against the Denver Nuggets Saturday despite dealing with "minor soreness" in his ankle, head coach Frank Vogel said, according to USA Today Sports' Mark Medina.

The Lakers had previously listed Davis as questionable in the injury report.

Davis rolled his ankle midway through the fourth quarter in Game 4 after inadvertently landing on Paul Millsap's foot. He was apparently in considerable discomfort but remained in the game.

The 27-year-old big man is averaging 32.3 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 1.3 steals on 38.9 minutes per game in the Western Conference finals.

Los Angeles can advance to its first NBA Finals since 2010 with a win over Denver Saturday.
