Ed Davis said he "100%" wants to re-sign with the Blazers.
Jusuf Nurkic will be a restricted free agent and Davis will be unrestricted, but the Blazers already have $110.5 million in guaranteed salary on the books and likely can't afford to keep both. Davis gave the Portland second unit a huge lift this season, posting averages of 5.3 points, 7.4 boards and 0.7 blocks in 18.9 minutes. If Davis does return and Nurkic doesn't, we'd rather take a flier on Zach Collins. Apr 23 - 12:10 PM

Ed Davis played 15 minutes and had zero points and five rebounds in Monday's loss to the Nuggets.

Davis missed his last four games with an ankle injury, but was able to get back out there tonight, although he didn't do much of anything. The Blazers may give him some meaningful minutes in Wednesday's finale in order to get him in game shape for the postseason, but we wouldn't plan on trusting him in that one.
Apr 9 - 11:41 PM

Ed Davis (ankle) is not being listed on the injury report for Monday's game against the Nuggets.

While things could change as this is based off the game notes, which aren't all that reliable, Davis did say on April 1 that he was targeting a return to the floor for April 8. We should have official confirmation on his status following shootaround, but if Davis is able to get back out there, Zach Collins' minutes would take a hit.
Apr 8 - 6:34 PM

Ed Davis (right ankle) said he intends to return to action either April 8 in San Antonio or April 9 in Denver.

Davis has been walking without a boot and without a limp, but his right ankle is still very swollen. While he is very optimistic that he'll be able to return sooner rather than later, his optimism means nothing until he is officially re-evaluated by the team. Fantasy owners should make plans to be without him for a few games, and perhaps longer, as the Blazers likely want to make sure he is 100 percent for their playoff run. Zach Collins will continue to take on a larger role behind Jusuf Nurkic until Davis is cleared to return.
Apr 1 - 8:10 PM

An MRI confirmed Ed Davis sustained a right ankle sprain in Friday night’s game against the Clippers and he will be re-evaluated in 1-2 weeks.

That's a brutal blow for the Blazers and their second unit. The good news is Zach Collins is coming off a career night and the Blazers may get this opportunity to see if he can provide meaningful minutes in the postseason. This also means Jusuf Nurkic should have a higher floor most nights, but the Blazers may not want to up his minutes too much given his injury history.
Mar 31 - 5:01 PM

Ed Davis (ankle) will have an MRI on his sprained right ankle. X-rays taken after Friday's game against the Clippers were negative.

Davis suffered a sprained right ankle in the victory, so Caleb Swanigan came on in the second half for a few minutes. The big winner was Zach Collins, however, as he pulled down a career-high 15 points. For now, consider Davis day to day. We'll update his MRI results when available.
Mar 31 - 1:19 AM

Ed Davis left Friday's game against the Clippers due to a sprained right ankle and he was unable to return.

With Davis checking out, Caleb Swanigan entered the game to help fill the void. He finished with four points on 2-of-3 shooting while snagging eight rebounds with two blocked shots in 12 minutes off the bench. He was on his way to a big night, and likely would have played a ton in the second half with the game fairly out of hand. Consider him day to day for now.
Mar 31 - 12:35 AM

Ed Davis (right foot strain) was able to play 18 minutes off the bench Sunday in Oklahoma City.

Davis ended up with just two points, two rebounds, an assist and three turnovers with four personal fouls and a minus-14 rating, so it was an ugly performance. He was also involved in an altercation, taking exception to a hard foul from Terrance Ferguson. A shoving match resulted in a technical foul, but no ejection. Davis usually does better when Jusuf Nurkic is sidelined or in four trouble, but neither of those things were the case. He is only worth using in deeper leagues heading into the four-game work week.
Mar 25 - 10:15 PM

Ed Davis (right foot strain) will play vs. the Thunder on Sunday, as expected.

Jusuf Nurkic (back) is also available, however, which reduces Davis' upside. As usual, he's a hit-or-miss option who tends to fare better when Nurkic gets into foul trouble.
Mar 25 - 5:34 PM

Ed Davis (right foot strain) is probable for Sunday against the Thunder.

It's a new injury for Davis after a mild letdown on Friday with only four points, five boards and one block. Jusuf Nurkic is banged up with his back issue, but Davis is likely just looking at around 20 minutes.
Mar 24 - 4:54 PM

Ed Davis fouled out of Sunday's game in 11 minutes.

Davis made 1-of-3 shots to finish with two points, six rebounds and two turnovers. Fortunately for the Blazers, starter Jusuf Nurkic (17 points, 12 rebounds) avoided foul trouble and helped anchor the frontcourt en route to a 122-109 win vs. the Clippers. Davis has cooled off in a hurry over the past 10 days, and there's no reason to own him unless you're desperate for rebounds.
Mar 19 - 1:22 AM

Ed Davis went for 10 points with 15 rebounds in 26 minutes off the bench Friday against the Warriors.

Davis hit 4-of-5 from the field while adding four assists, a steal and a blocked shot. He has been a rebound machine over the past two games. Davis set a season best with 14 boards on Tuesday, and he bested that in the very next game. Statistically, this was his best game since he had 15 points and 13 rebounds in Dallas on Jan. 26.
Mar 10 - 1:58 AM

Ed Davis ended up with six points, 10 rebounds and a blocked shot over 20 minutes in Saturday's victory against Oklahoma City.

Davis saw a good amount of time at center with Jusuf Nurkic struggling, while Zach Collins picked up the slack at power forward with Al-Farouq Aminu having a rough offensive evening. Despite the 3-of-4 shooting night and the double-digit board total, Davis isn't likely to see an increase in minutes anytime soon. He remains useful only in the deepest of fantasy formats.
Mar 4 - 1:59 AM

Ed Davis scored 10 points with 11 rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 28 minutes against the Wolves on Thursday.

He was big time in the second half, checking in with 6:27 left in the third and not checking out until one minute was left in the game. Jusuf Nurkic was playing fairly well before the second half and leading up to this game, so there really isn't a takeaway on making an add on Boss.
Mar 2 - 1:39 AM

Ed Davis posted six points with eight rebounds across 21 minutes off the bench in Friday's 100-81 win at Utah.

Davis hit 3-of-5 from the field, and he also chipped in with a steal, but didn't offer anything else to his fantasy owners. Still, it was an impressive bounce-back performance after going scoreless in his final game prior to the All-Star break. He remains useful only in the deepest of fantasy leagues at this point as long as Jusuf Nurkic remains healthy.
