Lakers’ Anthony Davis to Return vs. Spurs; Rui Hachimura Available

Lakers forward/center Anthony Davis is expected to return to the lineup on Wednesday vs. the Spurs, more than five weeks after a right foot injury, per Dave McMenamin of ESPN.

Along with that new forward Rui Hachimura will be available to play vs the Spurs, coach Darvin Ham said, via McMenamin. Hachimura was acquired in a trade with the Wizards on Monday.

Davis suffered the injury in a Dec. 16 win over the Nuggets and was forced to exit the game. He made just 40 appearances last season and just 36 the season before that.

He is averaging 27.4 points and 12.1 rebounds in 25 appearances, shooting 59 percent from the field.

The Lakers (22-26) are coming off a home loss to the Clippers and sit in 13th place in the Western Conference.
