Davis has been out since Dec. 17, when he got injured against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Lakers start a six-game road trip on Jan. 21 against the Orlando Magic. The next five opponents: Miami Heat, Brooklyn Nets, Philadelphia 76ers, Charlotte Hornets and Atlanta Hawks.
According to McMenamin, Davis' movement is in good shape:
Without Davis in the fold, the Lakers have adjusted by slotting LeBron James at center. Los Angeles got off to a 5-0 record with James starting at the 5, but the defense still needs Davis' presence.
If the Lakers can maintain a record at or above .500 these next few games, then getting Davis back could help them make a push in the playoff standings.
The star big man is slated to get re-evaluated early next week.
