NBA: No limits for returning Davis

Anthony Davis says he doesn't feel he needs to have his minutes limited after making a return for Los Angeles Lakers in Tuesday's win over Brooklyn Nets.

The Lakers are in action on Thursday as they make the trip to Philadelphia 76ers and they are 6/5 to win in the Money Line, while the Sixers can be backed at 5/7.

Davis spent over a month on the sidelines with a knee injury and missed 17 games in a row but impressed on his comeback.

The 28-year-old was limited to 25 minutes against the Nets, but Davis feels he doesn't need any restrictions and has no concerns over his fitness after making a return to action.

"I feel ready," Davis said, via Silver Screen & Roll. "We don't practice much, don't have much practice time but was still able to get some 1-no-1, 2-on-2s and see how it felt. I was ready enough to go tonight.

"I don't know about the whole minute restriction thing. I think that might, for me, come off. I might tell them I don't need that but we'll see."

Davis not being held back

He added: "I don't want to babysit it. I feel like if I have to babysit it then I shouldn't be on the floor.

"So, when I'm out there playing, I just try to go out there and do what I have to do to help the team win and let the rest just take of itself. I don't think 'Oh this move bothered me before, don't do it'. I just go out there and play."

The Lakers sit in seventh spot in the Western Conference with a 24-24 overall record, but they are just two-and-a-half games behind Denver Nuggets in the final automatic play-off spot and a top-six seeding is still achievable as they bid to avoid the play-in tournament.
