It is being reported that Lakers star Anthony Davis who’s been absent due to a nagging Achilles strain and calf injury that he suffered against the Denver Nuggets on February 14th, is expected to return today against the Dallas Mavericks on a minutes restriction. Davis said he feared he tore his Achilles the first time when he felt a “ripping” sensation. LeBron James and Anthony Davis have been out multiple games for different injuries and it’s hurt the Lakers chances of getting chemistry with their newest addition big man Andre Drummond.
Lakers players are already feeling the excitement of Davis returning. Kyle Kuzma took to twitter to share his feelings having Anthony Davis return tonight. The next goal for the Los Angeles Lakers is to get LeBron James back and get their two stars back to 100% healthy so they can compete for back to back NBA championships. The Lakers are currently 35-23 and have been 11-10 without Davis this season and if they wanna take down the super team Brooklyn Nets, they’re going to have to be as healthy as possible.
