Coach Frank Vogel says Davis wanted to play the second half of a back-to-back Wednesday night, but the team decided otherwise. He expects Davis to return Friday at home against Sacramento.
Davis had 24 points and 12 rebounds in a 123-115 victory at Phoenix on Tuesday night.
Davis is averaging 26.3 points, 10.4 rebounds and 2.9 blocks in his first season with the Lakers. He started the first 10 games.
