Anthony Davis said that he was getting closer to returning to the Los Angeles Lakers lineup after missing the last 3 games due to injury.

"Zero [pain] right now. It's the movement that kind of gets me. But ... I'm getting closer to getting back on the floor with these guys," said Davis.

The Lakers have won all 3 games without Davis. 

Davis added that the team's success is allowing him to take it slow in his recovery.

"The last three games, it looks like they don't need me. So kind of taking it slower than usual," said Davis.

Davis has yet to return to 5-on-5 practice or take part in any contact drills.
