Dave McMenamin: Lakers star big man Anthony Davis will return to the lineup Wednesday vs. SAS, barring any setback during his pregame warmup, league sources told ESPN. He will be back in the lineup 5 1/2 weeks after suffering a fractured bone spur and stress reaction in his right foot. Davis will be on a 20-24 minute restriction, easing back from an injury that had some medical personnel projecting an 8-10 week recovery timeframe.

Final: Clippers 133, Lakes 115
The Lakers drop to 22-26. They are 10-10 since AD’s right foot injury. LeBron James had 46 points, becoming the first player to score 40 points against all 30 NBA franchises. He also made a career-high nine 3s.
Up next: vs. Spurs tomorrow. – 12:24 AM

Tomorrow will be a brighter day, Lakers fans.
Rough loss, but things will almost certainly improve with a healthy AD and Rui added into the mix.
And who knows, maybe another deal is around the corner. Bojan would be ideal! – 12:22 AM

AD back as early as tomorrow? Okay! AD and Rui vs. Spurs will be a must-watch for Lakers fans. AD hasn’t suited up since Dec. 16. – 10:57 PM

More on this storyline

To Riley, that hope, that opportunity to compete for a championship, is everything at this stage in a player’s career. “That’s where LeBron is,” he said. “I’m not speaking to anything that he might say in the media, but that’s his only reason to continue to play. Breaking the scoring record will be big for him if it happens, and it will happen. But he wants to win titles; that’s what drives him. And so for him to continue to play at this level, with that hope that this team is going to come together out there and Anthony Davis gets back, I think they got a shot. I really do. And I believe he believes that too.” -via ESPN / January 24, 2023
Kyle Goon: Darvin Ham said Anthony Davis played yesterday with the “Stay Ready” group and “looked phenomenal” — taking some contact, which is a huge step in his rehab. -via Twitter @kylegoon / January 22, 2023
