Lakers' Anthony Davis progressing in rehab, hopeful of playoff return

Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis is making progress in his rehab from a foot sprain that has kept him sidelined for close to a month.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski said Saturday on NBA Countdown that Davis – who has been sidelined since Feb. 16 – will be reevaluted later this week.

"His walking boot is off, and I’m told this week the next step for him is he’ll get on the court and start to do some stationary shooting," said Wojnarowski. "And they still, with 16 games left for the Lakers and the toughest schedule left in the league, the expectation is that they can still hang on to the play-in and get in the postseason and they can have Anthony Davis back.

“He’ll make more progress this week they hope, and he’ll have another MRI which will be about four weeks out from the injury, and the hope is that he can then start progressing towards returning before the postseason begins."
 
ANALYSIS: It has been a disasterous season for the Lakers, who are currently ninth in the Western Conference with a 29-37 record. The team could desperately use Davis, who has averaged 23.1 points, 9.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists this season.
