Anthony Davis is building up his conditioning in preparation for his return to the Los Angeles Lakers lineup.

Davis has been out of the lineup since Feb. 14 due to a calf strain and tendinosis in his right leg. 

"The biggest thing is conditioning right now. He's healthy. But having not played and not really being able to ramp up his physical on-court activity over the last two months, it's going to take some time before he gets his wind under him and obviously, that's the biggest thing," said Frank Vogel.

The Lakers play the Mavs on Thursday. Davis will be restricted to 15 minutes in his first two games.

LeBron James is still "weeks away" from returning to the court, sources told ESPN.
