Major Help On The Way For Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers have announced that Anthony Davis is probable for Tuesday's game against the Brooklyn Nets. 

Davis has been out of action for the last five weeks due to a sprained MCL. However, after all of this time, the star is finally ready to return. It truly couldn't have come at a better time for the Lakers, as they now have a 23-24 record and are eighth in the Western Conference. However, with Davis set to return, perhaps he can help them get out of this funk and back on track. When looking at their current roster, it's fair to say that they have been underachieving this campaign.

Before his injury, Davis was on fire. In 27 games this season, he has averaged 23.3 points, 9.9 rebounds, and 2.9 assists per contest. That kind of production from him has been missed, but thankfully, the Lakers are finally getting it back. 

It will be fun to see how the Lakers respond from here with Davis returning.
