LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles Lakers star big man Anthony Davis will return to the lineup Wednesday against the San Antonio Spurs, barring any setback during his pregame warmup, league sources told ESPN.

He will be back in the lineup 5½ weeks after suffering a fractured bone spur and stress reaction in his right foot.

Davis will be on a 20-24 minute restriction, easing back from an injury that had some medical personnel projecting an 8-10 week recovery timeframe, sources said.

L.A. has gone 10-10 in Davis’ absence.
