Davis (back) is starting Friday's game against the Trail Blazers, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.

Davis left Thursday's game against the Clippers in the first quarter due to back spasms, but he was confident in his ability to start Friday. Davis should continue to handle a significant role for the Lakers with LeBron James (ankle) and Dennis Schroder (COVID-19 protocols) unavailable.
