Ed Davis scored five points with five boards in 13 minutes against the Magic on Thursday.
He was basically the backup to Jusuf Nurkic in this game. Davis is not going to have much value while Nurkic is playing anywhere close to how good he looked today. Feb 23 - 10:12 PM

Ed Davis will come off the bench on Thursday against the Magic.

The Blazers went big with Davis starting next to Meyers Leonard in their last game against the Jazz, but that was obviously about the matchup. We'll see what happens today with Jusuf Nurkic starting for the first time. Davis may split the backup minutes with Leonard, which means both don't have much value.
Feb 23 - 7:04 PM

Ed Davis scored seven points with five rebounds as the starter against the Jazz on Wednesday.

It was a tough matchup against Rudy Gobert for his 19 minutes, but coach Terry Stotts even starting Davis next to Meyers Leonard bodes well. Davis did also outplay Leonard over the last two games, so he may wind up being the No. 2 big in the rotation -- Jusuf Nurkic looked terrific today. Davis is only worth a look in deeper leagues.
Feb 16 - 12:32 AM

Ed Davis will start and Noah Vonleh will come off the bench against the Jazz on Wednesday.

It makes sense. Vonleh is the only healthy true power forward and the Jazz have a big frontline, so coach Terry Stotts will go big early against Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert. Davis is coming off a double-double, so he could be a viable option in DFS today. He's a sneaky deep-league guy, especially if Jusuf Nurkic doesn't start.
Feb 15 - 8:46 PM

Ed Davis played 27 minutes and had 11 points, 13 rebounds and a block off the Blazers' bench in Monday's 109-104 overtime loss to the Hawks.

Davis was nice and finished the game tonight, but it's important to note that starter Meyers Leonard was on the bench down the stretch with five fouls. Either way, Jusuf Nurkic should be starting for this team after the All-Star break, meaning neither Davis, nor Leonard, are guys you want to be targeting right now. Especially if you take a look at the game logs for Davis and Leonard this season.

Ed Davis (wrist) played 16 minutes on Friday vs. the Mavericks, scoring five points with two rebounds.

He returned from a five-game absence and slotted right back into his usual role. The frontcourt is crowded in Portland and Davis was averaging 17.0 minutes per game before the injury, so he's not a fantasy pickup.
Feb 4 - 2:26 AM

Ed Davis (wrist) is active for Friday's game vs. the Mavericks.

He's available, but that doesn't mean he's a lock to play since he's been out for five straight games. He has very little fantasy value in Portland's crowded frontcourt and is not a pickup.
Feb 3 - 10:32 PM

Ed Davis (wrist) said he's planning on returning to the court for Friday's game against the Mavericks.

Davis has spent the past five games on the sidelines with the wrist issue, which has resulted in Meyers Leonard and Noah Vonleh seeing an uptick in minutes. Davis is only averaging 16.9 minutes per game this season, and he'll likely be eased back into things after spending nearly two weeks on the sidelines, so there's no reason to own him anywhere.
Feb 1 - 11:34 AM

Ed Davis (wrist) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against Charlotte.

It'll be his fifth straight game on the sidelines, but he said he's hoping to return on Friday vs. the Mavericks. Meyers Leonard and Noah Vonleh will continue to split Davis' minutes, which means very little in fantasy hoops.
Jan 30 - 4:46 PM

Ed Davis (wrist) is out for Sunday against the Warriors.

It'll be Meyers Leonard stepping up as the backup big man. Leonard saw 100 percent of the 14 backup center minutes, but that's still not enough to add him in most leagues. Davis can remain on the wire.
Jan 28 - 5:26 PM

Ed Davis (wrist) will not play on Friday against the Grizzlies.

No revenge game for Boss. With him out, Meyers Leonard has seen most of the backup minutes at the five. Based on the matchup, Leonard could be looking at 17-22 minutes as a low-end lottery ticket in deeper leagues for a stream.
Jan 26 - 6:04 PM

Ed Davis (left wrist sprain) will not play against the Lakers on Wednesday night.

This is a different injury from his ankle sprain. Davis probably wouldn't have played in this game too much because the Lakers don't have a strong center down low. Meyers Leonard and Noah Vonleh benefit, but not enough to pick up.
Jan 25 - 9:28 PM

Ed Davis (ankle) is doubtful to play Wednesday against the Lakers.

Davis averages just 16.9 minutes a night, so his playing status doesn't carry much weight in fantasy hoops. If he can't give it a go on Wednesday, Meyers Leonard and Noah Vonleh would split his minutes, but that doesn't mean all that much.
Jan 24 - 4:12 PM

Ed Davis (ankle) is out for Saturday against the Celtics.

He didn't exactly look right on Friday and it wasn't just because he had to guard Joel Embiid. With Davis back, there could be a few extra minutes for Meyers Leonard, Al-Farouq Aminu and Noah Vonleh. There's no need to react to this news.
Jan 21 - 3:50 PM

Ed Davis (ankle) played 15 minutes with two points, six rebounds, one assist and five fouls in 15 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

This is definitely one of those Ed Davis games for coach Terry Stotts. The coach loves to use Davis against the stud bigs and put Davis on Joel Embiid quite a bit tonight. He does not have much fantasy value.
