Davis will have a time restriction imposed on him, so he shouldn’t play for more than 24 minutes at Crypto.com Arena. The duration of the minute limit going forward is still up in the air.

On December 16 against the Denver Nuggets, Davis suffered a broken bone spur and a stress reaction in his right foot. In the paint, he competed against Nikola Jokic of the Nuggets. He landed on his feet and almost quickly hopped in agony. The Lakers then declared him permanently injured.

Before he was injured, Davis was also engaged in some of the finest basketball of his career. This season, his fourth with the club, he had a career-high 12.1 rebounds, averaged 27.4 points, and shot a career-best 59.4% from the field.

Without Davis, the Lakers went 10-10 while mainly relying on Thomas Bryant. On Monday, the Lakers also acquired center Rui Hachimura from the Washington Wizards. He may make his Lakers debut on Wednesday.

The Lakers have won three of their last five games coming into Wednesday. Despite LeBron James’ 46-point performance on Tuesday, they were defeated 133-115 by the Los Angeles Clippers. James is now 178 points shy from breaking Kareem Abdul-all-time Jabbar’s scoring mark.
