According to Lakers reporter Mike Trudell, Davis is expected to return to action on Tuesday, Jan. 25 vs. the Nets after being listed as “probable” on the official injury report.

After Davis went down with a right knee injury on Friday, Dec. 17, an MRI revealed a sprained MCL in his right knee. Initial reports indicated that his knee would be re-evaluated in four weeks’ time.

Los Angeles’ visit to Miami was the second game of a six-game trip that continues with trips to take on the Nets, 76ers, Hornets and Hawks.
