Lakers star Anthony Davis is reportedly optimistic that he will be able to return to play in a few weeks after suffering a stress injury to his right foot.

According to ESPN's Dave McMenamin, Davis is set to begin the ramp-up process this week, which involves aquatic pool workouts and running on an altered-gravity treadmill to keep weight off the foot while it continues to heal.

The team is hopeful that the ramp-up process will only take a few weeks, potentially allowing Davis to return before the Feb. 9 trade deadline.

Davis has been limited to spot shooting so far, but the pain in his foot has been decreasing. The Lakers have gone 8-5 without Davis, winning their last five games.

Thomas Bryant has performed well in his absence, leading the team to consider keeping him as the starting center when Davis returns.

Davis has had a history of injuries in recent years, playing just 76 combined games over the past two seasons following the Lakers' 2020 championship.

If he is not available in the spring, their postseason hopes could be jeopardized.
