Lakers star Anthony Davis to return from 20-game absence due to foot injury vs. Spur

Davis, new forward Rui Hachimura expected to be available Wednesday against San Antonio

The Los Angeles Lakers star is set to return Wednesday for the team's game against the San Antonio Spurs,

barring any setback in warmups, after missing 20 games due to a foot injury, according to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin.

Davis will be on a minutes restriction and shouldn’t play more than 24 minutes in the game at Arena.

It’s unclear how long that minutes restriction will be in place moving forward.

Davis sustained a fractured bone spur and a stress reaction in his right foot on Dec. 16 against the Denver Nuggets.

He went up with Nuggets star Nikola Jokic in the paint and started hopping in pain almost instantly after landing on his feet.

The Lakers then ruled him out indefinitely.

Davis was playing some of the best basketball in his career before he went down, too. He averaged 27.4 points, a career-high 12.1 rebounds and shot a career-best 59.4% from the field this season
