AD returns from 17-game absence in Lakers win


NEW YORK — Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis returned Tuesday night against the Brooklyn Nets after missing 17 games with a sprained MCL in his left knee.

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.
