Before the Los Angeles Lakers played the Miami Heat on Thursday, LeBron James posted a picture of himself and Anthony Davis with a caption that raised eyebrows.

James’ post was just the latest hint that at least Davis is close to making his return for the Lakers. Earlier this week, Marc Stein of the New York Times reported that the Lakers are “hopeful” that Davis will be cleared to play when they return from their Eastern Conference road trip on April 15, a week from today.

While that’s obviously good news, the Lakers have a tough slate of games leading up to Davis’ potential return, starting with a matchup against the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday. On today’s episode of “The 30,” Jas and Christian previewed the Lakers’ new few games and discussed the probability of them falling into a play-in spot.

But first, they recapped the Lakers’ 110-104 loss to the Miami Heat, in which the Lakers showed that they can compete against good teams even with James and Davis sidelined. They also went over Andre Drummond’s first extended run with the team, and what they expect from him when James and Davis are back in the lineup.
