They can rest easier.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:
Davis should return around the time of the Lakers’ opener, Oct. 22 against the Clippers. Maybe he’ll be back in time for that game. Maybe it’ll be shortly after.
There’s a lot of excitement around opening night, and Davis playing in Los Angeles is a big part of the appeal. But the Lakers are gearing up for a long season. They shouldn’t place too much emphasis on the first regular-season game.
