Davis injured, could return next week at the earliest

The Los Angeles Lakers are waiting for their main scorer.

According to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, the Lakers’ “The Brow” Anthony Davis (forward-center, 208cm, 115kg) will return next week at the earliest.

Davis’ rehabilitation is understood to be progressing smoothly. It was initially predicted that he would return in February, but it is expected that he will be able to join the team before the upcoming eastern expedition schedule.

In the best case, it is expected that a sortie will be possible in the home game against the San Antonio Spurs on the 26th (Korean time). What is clear is that as of the 26th, it is likely that Davis will return after midweek, so the Lakers can start in earnest again. In the last 5 games, they only added 1 win, but before losing in a row, they also ran 5 consecutive wins, the club’s most this season. 스포츠토토

Davis had a really great run this season before his injury. He finally showed off his performance at the time of his last 2019-2020 season, when he won the championship. However, he suffered an unexpected injury during the season and was unable to avoid a long absence due to injury this season. After just 76 appearances in his last two seasons, he has only started 25 games this season due to injury.

This season, he averaged 27.4 points (.594 .290 .826), 12.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.3 steals and 2.1 blocks in 33.4 minutes per game before getting injured. He is responsible for the most average points and average rebounds since entering Hollywood. Since joining the Lakers, he has stood out, so the injury this season was quite disappointing compared to the previous season. The key is to come back after the injury and recover the pre-season performance.

Meanwhile, the Lakers are down to 13th in the Western Conference with 20 wins and 25 losses so far this season. Excluding the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Houston Rockets, which are currently undergoing a major overhaul in the West, their performance is the worst among the clubs that are actually trying to achieve results in the Confunners. However, it is not far from the 50% win rate, so if Davis returns, it is worth aiming for a rebound.
