Lakers News: Anthony Davis Set to Return vs. Boston Celtics

After missing nearly two weeks due to injury, Los Angeles Lakers superstar Anthony Davis is set to return for a marquee matchup versus the Boston Celtics.

According to a Monday morning report, Davis is now available to return to the court.

Davis is averaging 27.1 points, 9.4 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 2.6 blocks per game so far this season.

He has played magnificently alongside fellow Lakers star LeBron James, despite this being the first season of their partnership.

That being said, the Lakers performed quite well in Davis’ five-game absence.

They won four of five games, with the sole defeat coming in a one-point loss to the Orlando Magic.

Davis will certainly be needed in the upcoming handful of games, however. Including Monday’s tilt, four of the next five games for the Lakers will be against teams currently slated to advance to the playoffs.

With Davis back in the lineup, the Lakers have a chance to further solidify their dominance in the league.

Hopefully, they make good on that opportunity.
