In LeBron James' absence, the Golden State Warriors, led by Steph Curry, capitalized fully, initiating the NBA season's final stretch with a victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.

Following the game, Darvin Ham confirmed his expectation of James returning for their next match, the second leg of the back-to-back at home against the San Antonio Spurs on Friday evening.

Steph Curry's remarkable 32-point performance propelled the Golden State Warriors to a 128-110 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA.

At the age of 35, Curry showcased his prowess by shooting 50% from the field, making 12 out of 24 attempts, including 6 of 13 from beyond the arc. He also contributed eight assists. Andre Wiggins provided valuable support with 20 points.

The Lakers had maintained that it was not a significant problem. Speaking afterward, coach Darvin Ham expressed confidence in having his star player back for Friday's match against the San Antonio Spurs.

"We'll receive official confirmation tomorrow morning and see, but it's highly probable he'll be out there tomorrow," Ham informed reporters.

Davis managed to play through his injury, leading the Lakers in scoring with 27 points and grabbing 15 rebounds. However, his ability to communicate with his teammates on the court was severely limited.

Ham acknowledged that the situation wasn't ideal but commended Davis for his determination to play and deliver a commendable performance.

"To navigate a game against such formidable firepower led by the likes of Steph Curry, it's imperative that everyone communicates, stays alert, and executes their roles diligently from the outset,"

"There are moments when you must exert multiple efforts and actively communicate with your teammates,"
