According to ESPN reporter Dave McMenamin, the Lakers’ ‘The Brow’ Anthony Davis (forward-center, 208cm, 115kg) is returning.
He, who was expected to return during this week, will play in the home game against the San Antonio Spurs on the 26th (Korean time). If there is nothing wrong with warming up before the game, it is likely to run, and the playing time is expected to be about 20 to 24 minutes. It is not known whether he will be playing for the first time.
He did not escape injury in mid-December. He injured his right foot in a home game against the Denver Nuggets on the 17th and has not returned since. As a result of the detailed examination, a 4-week colon was first confirmed, and he could actually be absent for at least 8 weeks and up to 10 weeks. However, as the recovery was outstanding, and the rehabilitation process went well, he was able to return in about 5 weeks practically.
With Davis joining, the Lakers will be able to test the power operation in earnest. Rui Hachimura joined through a recent trade. Thomas Bryant, who was out with an injury at the beginning of the season, is also working hard. If Davis returns and takes center stage from the inside, the Lakers are expected to build a solid inside power. 메이저놀이터
He appeared in 25 games this season before getting injured. He recorded 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. He has been playing in the beginning of the season, but since he moved his team, he is showing his most outstanding performance. As much as he returns, the key is how much he will reproduce before he was injured, at least from February.
Meanwhile, the Lakers also went on a five-game winning streak even after Davis’ injury. The Lakers maintained a 50% win rate with 10 wins and 10 losses in 20 games without Davis. In the early part of the season with him, he seldom won many victories. Now, if Davis normally joins, the burden that LeBron James has been carrying is expected to be somewhat reduced.
