Anthony Davis expects to return as Lakers visit Mavs

The reigning NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers expect to have Anthony Davis back on Thursday night when they play the Mavericks in the first game of a two-game series in Dallas.

Davis' return is the first major step for the Lakers (35-23) to get back to full strength in advance of the postseason. Los Angeles continues to await the return of four-time NBA Most Valuable Player LeBron James from an ankle injury.

The Lakers have gone 14-16 without Davis and 7-9 without him and James, dropping to fifth in the Western Conference standings. The Lakers have especially struggled lately, suffering wire-to-wire losses to the Boston Celtics and Utah Jazz on their recently completed three-game homestand.
