The Los Angeles Lakers head coach Frank Vogel says big man Anthony Davis, who was sidelined since Feb. 16 due to a mid-foot sprain, returning tonight against the New Orleans Pelicans. The Lakers forward LeBron James is a game-time decision.

Davis has played only 37 games this season, first dealing with the knee sprain suffered in Minnesota in December, and then the foot sprain in the game before the All-Star break. He’s steadily been ramping up activity for the past few weeks and cleared all hurdles to return.
