Ed Davis is a minus-5 in 236 minutes this season, while starting power forward Carlos Boozer is a minus-118 in 277 minutes.
It's the latest illustration of Boozer's complete and utter ineptitude on the defensive end of the floor. The cries are growing louder for more Davis and less Boozer, and the veteran's offensive numbers are among the emptiest in the NBA. After Byron Scott threatened lineup changes, Boozer could be in line to lose his spot to Davis sooner rather than later. Stay tuned. Nov 17 - 11:48 AM

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis played 27 minutes off the bench against the Pelicans on Wednesday with eight points, 11 boards and two blocks.

His minutes have been holding steady in the low 20s and he entered tonight with averages of 9.7 points, 6.6 boards and 1.6 blocks on 71.4 percent from the field. If not for the woeful 44.4 percent from the line, Boss would be worth owning in standard leagues. Just keep an eye on Davis for now.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis played 21 minutes against the Warriors with 13 points, six rebounds, two assists and one steal.

Coach Byron Scott said he won't change his starting lineup for 15 games or so, which means we're stuck with second-unit Boss. Still, Davis has been useful in three of four games and is worth a look for owners seeking a big man.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis scored 10 points on 5-of-6 shooting with six rebounds and no steals or blocks in 20 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Clippers.

Davis was plagued by foul trouble and it's going to slow some of his momentum as a pickup, but owners should keep in mind that he's bound to play his way into greater minutes as the year goes on.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis turned in a big line against the Suns on Wednesday with 14 points, nine rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in 33 minutes.

He is 2-for-2 with big lines and it looks like he's earning his bump in minutes. The Lakers are getting absolutely torched on defense and Carlos Boozer isn't helping. A move to the starting lineup for Davis could help, but he's still worth owning in most leagues even with his current bench role.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis was outstanding off the bench for the Lakers on Tuesday, in which he scored 11 points while adding six rebounds, one steal, and two blocks in just 22 minutes.

Rookie Julius Randle suffered a fractured leg and will be out indefinitely, so if there was ever a chance for Davis to shine, it would be right now. Davis may be worth a flier, but the Lakers' plans are unclear at the moment. Stay tuned.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis was outstanding in the preseason finale with 15 points, 13 rebounds, four assists and no turnovers in 30 minutes against the Kings.

He's had a couple bright spots and is going to be in the rotation to start the season. Davis probably won't be a big enough part of the offense on opening night, but any injury to a fellow Laker big man would make him an interesting option.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Lakers PF Ed Davis came off the bench for 11 points, six rebounds, one assist, two steals and three blocks in 23 spirited minutes vs. the Suns on Tuesday.

Davis has quickly emerged as coach Byron Scott's preferred backup big man, reducing Robert Sacre to an afterthought. He's worth a flier pick in deep leagues, as he has the potential to average 5+ rebounds and 1+ blocks with low-volume, high-percentage points.
Oct 22 - 1:00 AM
Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis is expected to get the bulk of the backup minutes at center on Thursday.

Robert Sacre played more on Sunday, scoring 12 points with five rebounds, two assists and one block in 27 minutes. Davis received a DNP-CD because coach Byron Scott wanted to get a long look at Sacre. The former Raptor and Grizzly has been terrific at camp thus far and is on the radar in deep leagues, especially considering how tough it's been for Jordan Hill to play big minutes.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis played well in 16 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday with six points, seven boards and one steal.

He continues to crash the boards and had five offensive rebounds tonight. Davis had a solid opener with 12 points and he's probably going to earn a spot in the rotation. Jordan Hill is still worth a look late in drafts.
Oct 10 - 9:17 AM
Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis excelled in his first game in a Laker uniform on Monday with 12 points, one rebound and four blocks in 12 minutes against Nuggets.

He lives around the rim and is a good fit for the second unit. Davis had the pick-and-roll working with Jeremy Lin, so he didn't really have to put the ball on the floor. He is still a little rough around the edges and would probably need a Jordan Hill injury to be worthy of your attention in most fantasy leagues.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Byron Scott hinted that Ed Davis could play some center for the Lakers on Friday.

"I like Ed's size," Scott said. "He's very good around the basket and can also block shots. He's gonna have to play in the post." There are probably about 20-24 minutes up for grabs at center behind Jordan Hill and Davis has logged minutes at center before, but he didn't fare well. Although, before he made his debut with the Grizzlies on Feb. 1, 2012, Davis was fantastic back in January 2012 with the Raptors, averaging 13.9 points 8.1 boards and 1.0 blocks in the month. Still, he didn't perform at Memphis and is not on the fantasy radar in most leagues while Hill is healthy.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Free agent forward Ed Davis has agreed to a two-year deal with the Lakers, reports Yahoo! Sports.

The Lakers need a little bit of everything and while Davis has the potential to be a nice player, he isn't likely to be a difference maker alongside Kobe. The deal is for two years and $2 million, with the second year being a player option.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

The Clippers have reached out to Ed Davis about a contract.

There was reported interest on Tuesday and the Clippers seem serious to replace Glen Davis with a fellow having the same surname. Ed was a bit of a letdown with the Grizzlies after a productive 2012-13 in Toronto. He'd backup Blake Griffin in L.A.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

The Clippers are reportedly interested in unrestricted free agent Ed Davis.

Anybody watching Big Baby flopping around the court during the playoffs knows the Clippers need a quality backup power forward. Davis would certainly fit the bill and his market has softened since his time in Memphis.
