EL SEGUNDO — Going into his first game at Staples Center as a Laker, Anthony Davis knows the challenge that lies ahead.Driving eastbound on the 10 Freeway during the afternoon is a nightmare. But he’s ready for it.“I’ll be fine,” he said with a smirk. “I’ll leave a couple hours earlier to make sure I’m there on time.”His sprained right thumb? That’s apparently no problem at all: Davis will be in the starting lineup Wednesday night for the preseason game against the Warriors.

With not much time to build cohesiveness before the season begins Oct. 22, the Lakers want to squeeze a little more time out of their core rotation players, most of whom are expected to play in the game. Davis was adamantly in favor of getting at least one more game in.“I just want to play,” he said. “I’ll have so many games to play here at Staples, but I never want to sit out. So obviously I want to keep getting better. I’ve only played two games and a quarter so I want to continue to get better, continue to get to know the team, get the team better. Any time I’m able to do so I want to take advantage of it.”Coach Frank Vogel said the team will use “common sense” in its minutes for Davis, who is unlikely to play more than a half.After resting a few veterans Monday night on short rest after the return from China, the Lakers should be playing most of their regular rotation players, including LeBron James. Quinn Cook and Jared Dudley, who have missed a few preseason games, are expected to play. Troy Daniels, Kyle Kuzma and Talen Horton-Tucker continue to be sidelined.Related Articles
