Los Angeles Lakers have had to play without Anthony Davis in recent weeks, but they do not lose hope of getting him back as soon as possible after ruling him out indefinitely with an injury to his right foot.Davis himself spoke with reporters on Friday, clarifying how he has evolved from his injury, which could greatly affect the team in its fight for a berth in the postseason. “The pain has decreased tremendously,” Davis said before the game against the Atlanta Hawks.
Davis clarified that although going under the knife to remove a bone spur was a real option, he decided to avoid surgery and go for “rest and recovery” to rehabilitate his foot and return as soon as possible.
Although Davis did not reveal when he will be back in the Lakers dynamic, he hopes to find out in January 2023, when the team’s medical staff will re-examine his foot to stipulate a new diagnosis.
“The reality is that without Anthony Davis we lose height, which we don’t currently have,” LeBron James told ESPN. “We have to find a way to play without him. It’s very difficult and a challenge that we have to face. We have to find a fivesome where maybe Austin Reaves can help us.” “You don’t have to be a scientist to figure this out,” he said.
