The development of the Lakers concerning Anthony Davis!
Announced as uncertain against the Heat, Anthony Davis ultimately did not play in this match. A problem for the interior? The Lakers have just given more information about him. One thing is certain: the return is approaching.
It’s been over a month nowAnthony Davis did not tread the NBA floors. In question, a knee injury, mainly requiring rest and rehabilitation. The interior escaped the operation, which is good news for the Lakers, eager to find their star as soon as possible.
Given the team’s recent results, this is even more the case today: the Angelinos need their player, even if they have no plans to force fate. Davis will have plenty of time to get back on the court, and it won’t be long for the former Pelicans member.
No relapse for Anthony Davis
The proof that this return is approaching, AD was announced as a doubt for the Heat game. Not a confirmation that he would be present, but a sign that he is feeling better and better. In the end, he did not play against Miami, but Frank Vogel confirmed that everything was fine: no relapse for the person concerned.
Vogel said Anthony Davis didn’t have a setback, the Lakers just listed him as questionable for the sake of “transparency”, as there was a small chance he would be ready to play vs. Heat

Vogel said Davis didn’t have a relapse, that the Lakers listed him as « doubtful » for transparency, since there was a slim chance he was ready to play against the Heat.
A confirmation therefore that Davis is doing better, but not to the point of returning. In addition, he will not play 35 minutes on his return, since the player will have to get used to contact:
We will continue to evaluate Dwight Howard’s playing time, because he has been very good for us. I’m sure Anthony Davis won’t be playing 40 minutes the night he returns, so we’ll see depending on the fixtures.
Anthony Davis is doing well, but he still needs time before making his return to the courts. For the staff, there is no question of leading the player towards a possible relapse, regardless of the results of the collective.
