Ed Davis said that his knee "feels funny."

He was questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Thunder with a right knee bruise, but he played 22 minutes and looked really good. "It doesn't hurt it just feels funny," Davis said. An MRI taken on Saturday came back clean, and he also made it clear that he doesn't have any pain or swellling. Davis should be good to go for Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz.
Jan 11 - 9:32 AM

Ed Davis (right knee bruise) played well in 22 minutes off the bench Sunday, scoring 10 points with nine rebounds, three assists and one block.

Davis shot 4-of-6 from the field and 2-of-2 at the free throw line, giving no indications that his knee was limiting him. Although he fared well tonight, Davis' role isn't robust enough to bother with him in typical leagues.
Jan 11 - 12:05 AM

Ed Davis (knee contusion) said that he will try to play on Sunday vs. the Thunder.

His role has been steadily declining, as he is averaging just 17.4 minutes over his past five games. Davis is better suited for deeper leagues until further notice.

Ed Davis is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Thunder with a right knee contusion.

This is the first we are hearing about a knee contusion, and the severity of the issue is still unclear. If Davis is unable to give it a go, Mason Plumlee will log heavy minutes if he can stay out of foul trouble, while Meyers Leonard could spend some time at the five as well.
Jan 10 - 2:10 PM

Ed Davis notched his seventh double-double of the season on Wednesday, scoring 12 points and grabbing 12 boards in 24 minutes off the Blazers' bench.

He's double-doubled in all three games vs. the Clippers this season, which is worth remembering when the teams meet again on Mar. 24. It will take an injury or two for Davis to earn standard-league relevance in Portland.
Jan 7 - 2:29 AM

Ed Davis (left ankle bone bruise) is probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

He was a full participant in Tuesday's practice, so Davis should be good to go on Wednesday. His playing time has been trending down lately and he is averaging just 5.6 points, 7.0 boards, 1.2 assists and 0.6 blocks over his last five games, so he is better suited for deeper leagues. His return could take some minutes away from Mason Plumlee and Meyers Leonard, though.

Ed Davis (left ankle bone bruise) was a full participant during Tuesday's practice.

Portland has not yet updated his status for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets, but him being a full participant at practice is certainly an encouraging sign. He did say on Sunday that he was hopeful to only miss a coupe days, so Wednesday is a realistic return date for Davis. If he is able to give it a go, Meyers Leonard's minutes will likely take a hit.

Ed Davis is hopeful that his left ankle bone bruise will only force him to miss a couple of days.

His injury is minor, and while he has already been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Kings, it sounds like he has a shot to play on Wednesday vs. the Nuggets. Players tend to be a little too optimistic on their timetables, so take this report with a grain of salt. In the meantime, Mason Plumlee, Meyers Leonard and Al-Farouq Aminu should all benefit in Davis' absence.

Ed Davis (left ankle bone bruise) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Kings.

Mason Plumlee will likely see his playing time in the high-30s tonight with Davis on the sidelines, and with a favorable matchup against the Kings, he'll be someone to consider in DFS. Meyers Leonard will also have the opportunity for some extended run tonight sans Davis, so he too is someone to consider in daily leagues with a favorable matchup against the Kings.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 02:22:00 PM

Ed Davis suffered a left ankle sprain during Saturday's game vs. the Cavaliers and will not return.

The Blazers ruled him out pretty quickly, but it should be noted that the game was a blowout. The Blazers play again on Sunday vs. the Kings, and while Davis said he will try to give it a go, he will undergo x-rays as a precaution. If he is unable to go, Mason Plumlee will have to log heavy minutes at center, while Meyers Leonard would benefit as well.

Ed Davis recorded another double-double on Monday vs. the Bucks, scoring 10 points with 13 boards, two assists and two blocks in 28 minutes off the bench.

Davis has really been trending up lately and he now leads the NBA in double-doubles off the bench with six on the season. He's averaging 10.4 points, 11.0 boards and 1.2 blocks in 26.8 minutes per game over his last five, so he's certainly worth a look if you need a big. His upside is limited by a poor free throw percentage as he was shooting just 53.3 percent from the line coming into the game, but he connected on his two attempts on Monday.

Ed Davis had another strong game in 27 minutes on Saturday, posting 13 points (5-of-6 FGs, 3-of-7 FTs), eight rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

Davis has been a stealthy fantasy option over the past two weeks despite coming off the Blazers' bench. He's helping owners with 9.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.7 blocks, as well as 9.0 points on stellar 71.0 percent shooting. He's a liability as a free throw shooter, but is well worth deploying if you need help in the typical big-man categories.

Ed Davis double-doubled off the bench with 13 points, 10 boards, one assist and one block in 24 minutes against the Clippers on Monday.

This was his his third double-double in his last five games. Davis' playing time has been a lot more consistent lately and he's arguably been the second best big in Portland over the last week apart from Mason Plumlee. He's averaging 11.0 points, 9.0 boards and 0.8 blocks in 26.4 minutes per game over his last five, so he's worth a look as a low-end big in deeper formats. Keep in mind that his value could take a hit if Meyers Leonard gets hot.
Tue, Dec 1, 2015 02:12:00 AM

Ed Davis hit 5-of-8 shots in 35 minutes off the bench on Tuesday, finishing with 12 points, 13 rebounds, three steals and two blocks.

He struggled on Sunday, but was back at it tonight. He's double-doubled in two of his last three games and is someone you should trust for as long as Meyers Leonard is out with his shoulder injury.
