Anthony Davis is ready to return to the field in early February

Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis, out for over a month before stopping due to injury on December 17, has set the timetable for his return to the field in early February. He will play a handful of games before the All-Star weekend break, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Davis is recovering from a stress fracture in his right foot, a problem not new to NBA players and not easy to treat. A fundamental come back for the Lakers, who at the moment, despite the enormous difficulties at the beginning of the season in getting results, find themselves just two games away from the 6th place occupied by the Clippers.

Having Davis available as soon as possible therefore becomes fundamental, given that a couple of wins more or less can make the difference between taking the postseason or staying at home and watching.

About Anthony Davis

Versatile and dynamic player, he is able to cover both the role of strong forward and centre.

He is decisive both in the offensive phase, during which he makes use of his remarkable repertoire in the low post, and in the defensive one, both in rebounding and, above all, in blocks, a statistic in which he was the best in the NBA in the 2013-14 seasons , 2014-15 and 2017-18.

Precisely because of these characteristics, he is considered one of the best players in the NBA and one of the best big forwards ever. On June 16, 2019, the Lakers obtained Davis in exchange for Josh Hart, Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, the fourth first-round pick in the 2019 Draft, and other first-round picks in subsequent years, beating competition from, among others, the Boston Celtics .

Growing up on the South Side of Chicago, Davis played in Perspectives Charter High School, which was in the Blue Division of the Chicago Public High School League. Remained practically unknown to insiders until 2010, also due to his short stature, he was discovered in the spring of the same year after a sudden growth and a series of exhibition matches in the Amateur Athletic Union, and was immediately considered by Scout.com the best high school player in the nation.

In 2011, he was selected for the Jordan Brand Classic, for the McDonald's All-American, in addition to being included in the first team All-American by Parade, SLAM Magazine, DIME and USA Today.
