Los Angeles Lakers superstar Anthony Davis to be re-evaluated in two weeks with calf injury

Los Angeles Lakers will continue to play without star big man Anthony Davis for the foreseeable future.

The Athletic's Shams Charania is reporting that Davis will be re-evaluated in two weeks time as he continues to progress from a calf/achilles injury.

The 28-year-old missed the Lakers' final nine games before the All-Star break, in which the team struggled to win just three of those contests. In his absence, much of the load has fallen onto the shoulders of LeBron James, who at 36 years old has missed just one game so far this season.

Prior to today's contest against the Indiana Pacers, ESPN's Dave McMenamin says the team has announced that Davis has "been cleared to enter the next phase of his return to play process."

Davis is averaging 22.5 points and 8.5 rebounds per game in his 23 appearances so far this season.
