Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis was a full participant at practice Wednesday and said he expects to play Thursday as the NBA season restarts.
Davis was poked in the eye during a scrimmage Saturday, and doubt was cast Tuesday about his availability to be ready for the Lakers' game against the Los Angeles Clippers.
"That's the plan," Davis said after Wednesday's practice, according to ESPN. "I'll get evaluated again tonight by one of the doctors here and kind of get an update from them. That's the plan, for me to play."
Davis missed Monday's scrimmage and Tuesday's practice after an inadvertent poke from Orlando's Michael Carter-Williams on Saturday.
Davis practiced Wednesday wearing protective eyewear.
Playing in his first season with the Lakers, the 27-year-old Davis averaged 26.7 points, 9.4 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 2.4 blocks in 55 games.
The Lakers are in first place in the Western Conference, 5.5 games ahead of the Clippers.
