NEW YORK (AP) — Anthony Davis will play for the Los Angeles Lakers against the Brooklyn Nets after missing 17 games with a sprained left knee. Coach Frank Vogel said 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. His return is a boost for a team that has played below expectations all season and entered play 23-24, eighth in the Western Conference. Davis has not played since Dec. 17. The Lakers went 7-10 in his absence.
