He finished with 8 points, 2 rebounds, 4 blocks and 2 assists in the Lakers’ 106-96 win, which brought them back to .500 at 24-24.
Coach Frank Vogel said pregame there was no set minutes level for the All-Star big man, but the Lakers had a range they wanted to keep him in Tuesday night. Davis ended up playing 25 minutes.
His return is a boost for a team that has played below expectations all season and sits seventh in the Western Conference.
Davis had not played since Dec. 17. The Lakers went 7-10 in his absence.
