  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Won't play Monday

    Davis has been ruled out for Monday's matchup against Brooklyn due to a stress injury in his right foot.

    Davis made back-to-back appearances off the bench after missing over a month with a foot injury, but the talented big man will be sidelined again Monday. It appears like his absence for the first half of the Lakers' upcoming back-to-back set is a load-management situation, but it's still concerning to see Davis back on the injury report. LeBron James (ankle) is also out, so Thomas Bryant, Wenyen Gabriel, Rui Hachimura and Juan Toscano-Anderson are all candidates for increased roles against the Nets.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Officially active off bench

    Davis (foot) will play in Saturday's game against the Celtics, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports. He will come off the bench.

    Davis was initially probable, so his availability does not come as a surprise. He was incredible in his first game back from a foot injury, recording 21 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks across 26 minutes Wednesday. Davis will likely remain on a similar minutes restriction to Wednesday's contest but remains a must-start in fantasy even with the limitations.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Labeled probable for Saturday

    Davis is listed as probable for Saturday's game versus the Celtics despite a right foot stress injury, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.

    Davis is on the injury report with the same foot that has cost him much of the season, but the probable designation suggests he's unlikely to miss Saturday's showdown in Boston. Davis wasted no time producing in his return to the floor Wednesday, racking up 21 points, 12 boards, four blocks, an assist and a steal over 26 minutes off the bench. Assuming the star big man can avoid setbacks, he should see his minutes increase in the coming tilts. However, it wouldn't be a surprise if he's rested in one of the Lakers' back-to-back games Monday and Tuesday.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Excels in return

    Davis (foot) chipped in 21 points (7-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 12 rebounds, four blocks, one assist and one steal across 26 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 113-104 win over the Spurs.

    After missing the Lakers' previous 20 games with a foot injury, Davis was back in action Wednesday, though he was on a minutes limit and came off the bench. The lengthy absence nor the role change appeared to affect Davis much during his time on the court, as he resumed making an impact on both sides of the court in his return and finished as the Lakers' leading scorer. The Lakers could continue to bring Davis off the bench for another game or two and look him to keep his playing time in the 25-to-30-minute range while he ramps back up, but fantasy managers can feel comfortable with activating him again.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Will come off bench against Spurs

    Davis (foot) will return and come off the bench Wednesday against the Spurs, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

    Head coach Darvin Ham stated as such, as he wants to manage Davis' minutes so the big man can potentially close the game if need be. Davis has not played since Dec. 16, and with him coming off the bench, Thomas Bryant will potentially remain in the starting unit.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Expected back Wednesday

    Davis (foot) is on track to return for Wednesday's game against the Spurs, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

    The Lakers relayed earlier Tuesday that Davis would be headed for a re-evaluation early Wednesday, but it has since been uncovered that if all goes well, the big man will be back in the lineup Wednesday. Assuming the star forward gains clearance to play, he'll be on a 20-to-24-minute restriction after missing nearly six weeks due to a fractured bone spur and stress reaction in his right foot, per McMenamin. Thomas Bryant would be the obvious choice to move back to a bench role after filling in for Davis as the Lakers' starting center in each of the past 20 games.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: To be re-evaluated Wednesday

    Davis (foot) 'had another great day' Monday and will be re-evaluated Wednesday morning, Mark Medina of NBA.com reports.

    Davis has been making steady progress on the road to recovery from a right foot injury. The Lakers continue to keep their plans for Davis' return quiet, though a timetable could emerge shortly after Wednesday's evaluation if all goes well. Los Angeles is scheduled to face off against the Spurs on Wednesday night.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Looks good in recent scrimmage

    Lakers coach Darvin Ham told the media Sunday that Davis (foot) "looked phenomenal" during a full-contact scrimmage Saturday, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    The Lakers have stayed away from putting a firm timetable on Davis' return, but he appears to be making substantial progress as he works back from a right foot injury. For now, Davis continues to be listed as "out" -- the Lakers play at Portland on Sunday night -- but it seems realistic that he could be back in the lineup within the next week or two. Prior to going down with the injury on Dec. 16 against Denver, Davis was hitting his stride as one of the most valuable players in all of fantasy basketball. On the year, he's averaging 27.4 points, 12.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.3 steals and 2.1 blocks while shooting a career-best-by-far 59.4 percent from the floor.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Inching closer to return

    Davis (foot) continues to make pain-free progress and could return to the Lakers' starting lineup as soon as late next week, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Davis has been sidelined since mid-December due to a bone spur and stress reaction in his right foot, but all signs point to the All-NBA big man closing in on a return. After Friday's home contest against Memphis, Los Angeles travels to Portland to begin a four-game week Sunday. Based on Wojnarowski's report, Davis will likely remain sidelined for at least the next four games, but he could be targeting the Lakers' Jan. 28 contest in Boston as a potential return date. When Davis does retake the floor, Thomas Bryant and Wenyen Gabriel figure to have their minutes decreased.
