Lakers Get Some Good News On Possible Anthony Davis Return

It's pretty clear that any hopes that the Los Angeles Lakers still harbor of making the postseason this year hinge on the return of Anthony Davis—as soon as possible. 

It sounds like things are trending in an extremely positive direction on that front, and with regards to his stress reaction in his foot. 

"It's healing pretty quickly," said AD. "It's at a '2' trending down to a '1' (on a pain scale of 10). 

Lakers head coach Darvin Ham says “the biggest thing is, his pain has just about dissipated” and says Davis is trending in the right direction when it comes to approaching a ramp-up to return to the court. 

Davis has been out since suffering the foot injury on December 16th. The Lakers are 3-5 since then and sit at 15-21, three games back of the Play-In in the Western Conference.
