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. Feb 24 - 12:45 AM

Ed Davis didn't score in 13 minutes of action on Wednesday.

The Blazers' big man grabbed four rebounds with one steal and this just wasn't the matchup for him vs. Golden State. Jusuf Nurkic (back, oblique) also played through injury to log 30 minutes tonight, which made it hard for Davis to hit his required 20+ minutes for fantasy value.
Feb 15 - 1:43 AM

Ed Davis scored seven points on 3-of-5 shooting Sunday, to go with six rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks over 20 minutes.

Davis had failed to hit the 20-minute mark in his previous two outings, so it was nice to see him back in a meaningful role in the rotation today. He's not going to do much for in the scoring column, but when Davis' minutes are in the 20s, he's capable of doing enough on the defensive end to establish himself as a low-end asset in deep leagues.
Feb 4 - 3:08 PM

Ed Davis finished Wednesday's game with four points, seven rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 19 minutes.

Davis came in averaging a double-double in his previous four games, and most fantasy owners will be satisfied with his overall contributions tonight. Jusuf Nurkic also exited late on Wednesday with a bruised left quad, and if he's forced to miss time Davis and Zach Collins stand to gain the most. Check back for updates after Portland's practice on Thursday.
Feb 1 - 12:48 AM

Ed Davis scored a season-high 15 points vs. the Mavericks on Friday, adding 13 rebounds with one assist and three blocks in 28 minutes.

He even nailed a jumpshot outside of the paint which was just his fourth attempt of the season -- coach Terry Stotts joked after the game that he'll have to start drawing up plays for him now. He outplayed Jusuf Nurkic tonight and has been trending up lately, averaging 9.8 points, 10.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.2 blocks in 22.8 minutes over his last five games.
Jan 27 - 12:52 AM

Ed Davis played 24 minutes with six points, 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 24 minutes against the Mavs on Saturday.

He stepped up with Jusuf Nurkic getting into some foul trouble, but there's not much else to this here. Davis is only a handcuff and he probably wouldn't get a big bump anyway.
Jan 21 - 1:21 AM

Ed Davis posted 11 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 26 minutes vs. the Rockets on Wednesday.

Davis closed out the final 5:21 ahead of Jusuf Nurkic tonight, and he finished 4-of-4 from the field and 3-of-7 from the FT line. This was his second double-double of the season, which speaks volumes about his lack of reliability, but we're keeping a close eye on his playing time -- he's hit 23 and 26 minutes in his past two games, so maybe that will continue to trend up.
Jan 11 - 12:38 AM

Ed Davis matched his season-high with 12 points against the Hawks on Friday, hitting 5-of-6 shots and 2-of-2 free throws in 18 minutes.

He made the most of his limited minutes with five rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal. Davis hasn't been worth owning in 12-team leagues for a while and he's not a great handcuff for Jusuf Nurkic's owners either because Portland has been giving rookie Zach Collins more run lately.
Jan 6 - 1:41 AM

Ed Davis scored two points with seven rebounds in 28 minutes against the Lakers on Saturday.

The Blazers second unit came through here and Davis outplayed Jusuf Nurkic again. Davis showed up to camp in the best shape of his life -- #TheBestShapeOfHisLife -- and it's showing on the court. He doesn't really have much value, but Nurk's owners probably don't like Boss Davis sucking so much value out of this rotation.
Sun, Dec 24, 2017 01:41:00 AM

Ed Davis scored two points with four rebounds, one steal and one block in 18 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

His role didn't really change while Jusuf Nurkic was out, so expect Davis to see minutes around 20 regardless of what the injury report looks like.
Sat, Dec 16, 2017 12:39:00 AM

Ed Davis stepped up on Wednesday, playing a season-high 26 minutes to finish with 11 points (4-of-6 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs), five rebounds and one steal.

Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) was ruled out well in advance of this game, which usually indicates that more DNPs are coming, but we'll consider him questionable for games on Friday (at Orlando) and Saturday (at Charlotte). Davis earned more minutes because Meyers Leonard (illness) was also out and Portland needed to counter Bam Adebayo's inside presence, so don't read too much into tonight's playing time.
Thu, Dec 14, 2017 12:29:00 AM

Ed Davis made all four from the field for eight points with nine rebounds, one steal and one block in 15 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

This was kind of a bad matchup for Boss, but he still came through with a solid line -- he was 0-of-2 from the charity stripe. Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) is probably going to miss more time and he gets what could be three favorable matchups for his skill set: Wednesday in Miami, Friday in Orlando and Saturday in Charlotte all before they go to Oakland on Monday. If you want to take a chance on a big with four games, you could do worse than Davis. Although, you would be betting against Nurk returning.
Sun, Dec 10, 2017 04:04:00 AM

Ed Davis will come off the bench against the Rockets on Saturday.

Yep, that's about right. He was listed as a starter, but he'll be in the second unit. We still like Davis to get decent minutes regardless.
Sat, Dec 9, 2017 10:02:00 PM

Ed Davis is listed as a starter over Meyers Leonard on Saturday.

OK. In case you're new to this, we go through this basically every time the Blazers need to make a lineup change because of injury. Regardless, Davis should be busy today and he's worth a look if you need blocks.
Sat, Dec 9, 2017 09:48:00 PM

Ed Davis (ankle) played 22 minutes with two points, eight boards, one assist and one block against the Kings on Saturday.

He suffered an ankle sprain on Friday, but he wasn't limited in this game. Davis has really come on as a rebounder and he may have value if Jusuf Nurkic had to miss time.
