Los Angeles Lakers fans are impatiently waiting for the latest update on big man Anthony Davis. The All-Star hasn’t played since mid-February and his absence is more than obvious. LA struggled without Davis, but LeBron James found a way to help his team win games without AD. LeBron himself is missing time, too. However, both superstars travel with the team and motivate players to do their job.
LeBron and AD are here to celebrate their success and motivate them to do harder after each mistake. We all watched them flex their guns after Andre Drummond’s ball bullying. But, we need them on the floor. Lakers veteran Jared Dudley said that his teammates will return to the floor by the end of the month. Guess what… He may be right. Maybe it’s time to put this drought to an end.
Promising update on Anthony Davis
NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski provided an important update on Davis ahead of Saturday’s big game against the Brooklyn Nets. LA won the game and celebrated a 126-101 win over Brooklyn.
According to Wojnarowski, team doctors will re-evaluate Davis when Lakers return to LA next Thursday. The team is on a four-game East Coast road trip. This is more than good news!
Davis’ potential return depends on this evaluation. We have every reason to believe that he will see action at the end of the month. Wojnarowski reported that AD may join his teammates in the next 7-10 days. That’s more than great news!
Davis may play next Saturday. LA has a two-game series with the Utah Jazz. He will get a chance to play against the top team in the West. Lakers players will have a chance to deliver a message to the Jazz. This is more like a warning for the postseason.
LA sits seven games behind the Jazz in the Western Conference standings. LA has a lot of games left on the schedule. Hopefully, they will win most of these. They need to improve the record in order to make the postseason. LeBron will have to wait a little longer to get back in action.
