Is Anthony Davis playing tonight? Latest injury update for Lakers vs Spurs, January 25

The Los Angeles Lakers are desperately waiting for Anthony Davis to return so the team can turn the season around. LeBron James has been able to will the Lakers to at least remain relevant in AD’s absence but the clock is ticking and the team needs AD to go on a run.

With how Davis was playing before his injury, there is legitimate potential for this Lakers team once he returns. They might not look like it right now, but the rest of the league should not sleep on the Lakers as a dark horse contender that makes some noise once they get right.

Lakers fans have been counting down the days until AD returns and that count may stop tonight. Here is everything you need to know.

Anthony Davis injury status for tonight’s game vs Spurs:

The current plan is for Anthony Davis to return to action on Wednesday against the San Antonio Spurs. Nothing is yet set in stone but as long as Davis does not suffer a setback during his pre-game warmups, he will be suiting up for the purple and gold.

If Davis does not return tonight against the Spurs then it is almost certain that he will return on Saturday against the Boston Celtics. The Los Angeles Lakers kick start a long road trip after Wednesday that they are going to need Davis for.

Lakers vs Spurs injury report:

Outside of Davis, there are several other players on the injury report for both teams. Austin Reaves and Lonnie Walker IV are both still out with their respective injuries that have kept them out of action for multiple weeks.

Devin Vassell is out for the Spurs after having a procedure on his knee in early January. Romeo Langford is listed as questionable with a minor hip injury.
