Anthony Davis (groin) starting for Lakers Thursday; Markieff Morris to bench

Los Angeles Lakers forward/center Anthony Davis will start Thursday in the team's game against the Phoenix Suns.

What It Means:

Once it was announced that Davis was cleared to return to the court for Game 6 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals following a groin injury, this was a given. He'll take his usual spot as starting power forward alongside Andre Drummond down low. Markieff Morris will come off the bench in a corresponding move.

Our models project Davis for 20.0 points, 7.4 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 38.8 FanDuel points across 29.2 minutes of action.
