Los Angeles Lakers superstar Anthony Davis will be reassessed by team medics in Los Angeles this week and could return to play within the next 10-14 days and LeBron James could be right behind him, sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of ‘ESPN.
Davis, out since Feb. 14 with a calf strain and right leg tendinosis, will be examined Thursday after the Lakers return from their current five-game trip to the East Coast, sources said.

And James, who suffered a sprained right ankle three weeks ago, is on track to return to the roster in three weeks, sources said.

The nine-year veteran Davis averaged 22.5 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and 1.3 steals per game this season before the injury.

James was considered one of the league’s top MVP contenders – averaging 25.4 points, 7.9 rebounds and 7.9 assists – before Atlanta Hawks forward Solomon Hill plunged into James’ ankle with the weight of his body while attempting to fly.

Heading into Saturday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets, the Lakers have compiled an 11-13 record since Davis came out, dropping from second to fifth in the Western Conference standings.

Dave McMenamin of ESPN contributed to this report.
