Coach Says Anthony Davis Progressing "Really, Really, Really Well"

He's been out for over a month now, but Anthony Davis and the Los Angeles Lakers can start to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Head coach Darvin Ham had some superlatives to describe AD's progress in his return from yet another devastating foot injury.

Ham said Davis is progressing “really, really, really well."

He has been ramping up to one-hour on-court workouts, he's getting his shot up pain-free, and he even did some pick-and-roll drills today with the team, added Ham. 

"He did jump in with the group today, did some non-contact stuff, pick-and-roll drills, a little offensive scripting. He’s looking good. Moving well. ... Got a great sweat in [during an] individual workout," said Ham. 

Davis has been out of the lineup since December 16th due to a stress injury and bone spur in his foot. The Lakers have gone 8-9 in his absence in the past month.

Earlier this week, Shams Charania reported that they hope to have him back before the All-Star Break, which could mean up to three more weeks before Davis returns.
