First of all, Davis, who has been missing due to an injury to his right foot, is known to be likely to return to the court in a home game against San Antonio on the 26th (Korean time). After the game against the Clippers on the 25th, coach Davin Ham directly mentioned Davis’ appearance through the press, and the possibility of Davis appearing on this day is very high.
Manager Hamm said, “If there are no problems in the warm-up before the game, he will play in the game. The playing time will be limited to 20 to 25 minutes,” suggesting Davis’ return. In 20 games with Davis out injured, the Lakers went 10-10 with a 500% win rate.스포츠토토
While LeBron James (38, 206cm) shows performances reminiscent of his heyday and is raging day after day, Thomas Bryant (25, 208cm), who replaced Davis as the main center, and backup center Wenyan Gabriel (25, 208cm), exceeded expectations. He is filling the void left by Davis brilliantly.
With Davis’ return, the Lakers’ big man rotation operation is expected to become more diverse, and the news of Davis’ return will in many ways be like heaven for the Lakers, who are aiming to advance to the playoffs.
Likewise, Ingram, who had been out of power for over two months, confirmed his return to the home game against the Minnesota Timberwolves on the 26th. According to ESPN’s report, Ingram went through all of his training without much difficulty, including joining training in earnest and wrestling with his fellow players. While Ingram and Zion Williamson (22, 198cm) are out with injuries, New Orleans is putting more pressure on the remaining players, including CJ McCollum (31, 190cm). In a situation where the atmosphere of the team is about to subside, such as being mired in a five-game losing streak, the return of Ingram, the main scorer, is good news that will instantly lift the atmosphere of the team.
