Anthony Davis to Record Double-Double

The theme of Anthony Davis’ season (and career, really) has been injuries and availability. While the 11-year veteran is having one of his best seasons statistically, he’s played in just 27 of his team’s 51 games.

With Davis coming back from his latest foot injury that sidelined him for more than a month, Lakers head coach Darvin Ham has elected to bring his prized big man off the bench in an effort to ease him back into his regular workload.

Despite the limited minutes, Davis has recorded a double-double in each of his first two games back in action.

In fact, in the 25 full games Davis has played, he’s recorded at least 10 points and 10 rebounds in 20 of those contests. This includes each of his last 15 games. The eight-time All-Star is having a resurgent season rebounding the ball, averaging 12 per game — a mark that would tie his single-season high.

With Davis being load-managed last night, it would not surprise me to see him slide back into the starting lineup against the Knicks. And if not, I’m still comfortable with the workload he’s received off the bench, which included a 34-minute outing against the Celtics on Saturday.

On the other side, the Knicks will be without their man in the middle, Mitchell Robinson. Since he went down with a hand injury, opposing big men have recorded a double-double in 5-of-6 games against the Knicks (the one miss was Clint Capela, who finished with nine boards in only 19 minutes).

I have Davis projected to notch his 21st double-double of the season tonight and would play this line (or over 9.5 rebounds) up to -135.
