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.

Ed Davis (ankle) is likely to play against the 76ers on Friday.

Coach Terry Stotts and the Blazers may not give us another update on Boss, but it makes sense to use him with how Stotts like Davis against skilled bigs. Obviously, fantasy owners shouldn't be reacting to this news at almost any depth.

Ed Davis (sprained left ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Friday's game vs. 76ers

Davis missed Wednesday's game due to the ankle sprain. There is only minimal fantasy impact here, as Davis will split minutes off the bench with Meyers Leonard and Noah Vonleh
Jan 20 - 11:08 AM

Ed Davis (sprained left ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

Davis only lasted five minutes on Monday night before the ankle flared up on him, so he could be spending a few games on the shelf here as he gets his ankle back to 100 percent. Meyers Leonard and Noah Vonleh will likely split Davis' minutes, but that means very little in fantasy hoops.
Jan 17 - 5:02 PM

Ed Davis (sprained left ankle) is available to play on Monday vs. the Wizards.

He was considered questionable, but he said his ankle felt fine after warmups. Davis has played 21 or less minutes in three straight games, so he shouldn't be in many fantasy lineups.
Jan 16 - 12:41 PM

Ed Davis (sprained left ankle) is a game-time call on Monday vs. the Wizards.

It's unclear exactly when Davis suffered this injury, but we should have a better idea on his status following Monday morning's shootaround. If he's out, Meyers Leonard would have the opportunity for some extended minutes off the bench, but he's too inconsistent to rely upon in standard settings.
Jan 15 - 4:50 PM

Ed Davis moved to the bench on Monday vs. the Clippers and played just 14 minutes, scoring seven points with five rebounds and one steal.

He was a career 60.0 percent free throw shooter prior to Monday, but calmly hit 7-of-8 attempts from the line tonight. Davis might find himself back in the starting lineup for certain matchups, but standard-league owners should be able to find a better and more consistent option on the waiver wire.

Ed Davis will come off the bench on Monday vs. the Clippers.

Al-Farouq Aminu (back) was upgraded to probable earlier in the day and the Blazers are going to throw him into the starting lineup to guard Blake Griffin. Aminu was the original starter at PF earlier this season, so Davis' owners can move on if we learn that this is a permanent switch.
Mon, Dec 12, 2016 10:30:00 PM

Ed Davis moved back into the starting lineup on Saturday vs. Indiana, scoring six points with 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 34 minutes.

He saw plenty of action with Al-Farouq Aminu (back) out and took his spot back in the starting lineup at the expense of Meyers Leonard. Davis' upside is pretty low and he averaged 5.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.0 block per game in 10 previous starts this season, so he's just a low-end asset if you'e desperate for a big.

Ed Davis will start against the Pacers on Saturday.

Meyers Leonard will return to the bench. Al-Farouq Aminu (back) likely won't play Saturday, so there should be plenty of minutes available for Davis. In 10 starts this season, he's averaging 5.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.0 block per game.
Sat, Dec 10, 2016 06:58:00 PM

Ed Davis is not on the injury report for Saturday's game against the Pacers.

He suffered an ankle tweak on Thursday and had his ankle heavily taped leaving the FedEx Forum in Memphis. Davis' playing time could rise again with Al-Farouq Aminu (back) questionable to play.
Fri, Dec 9, 2016 04:19:00 PM

Ed Davis took his demotion to the bench in stride on Thursday, racking up 10 points, 10 rebounds and two blocks in just 18 minutes in a 88-86 loss to the Grizzlies.

This was Davis' best game in a while, as he had failed to score more than nine points in his previous seven games. Maybe he'll be better off the bench, if the move lasts. Meyer Leonard didn't even score in the start tonight, lasting just 17 minutes and missing all three of his shots.
Thu, Dec 8, 2016 11:01:00 PM

Ed Davis will move to the bench on Thursday against the Grizzlies.

Davis saw his playing time drop on Wednesday, so he may see even a bigger hit tonight. He's a drop candidate in most leagues.
Thu, Dec 8, 2016 07:57:00 PM

Ed Davis played 17 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday with two points and five rebounds.

With Al-Farouq Aminu now back in action, Davis could see his playing time take a hit. Although, Aminu isn't having the strongest season. Whatever the case, most of Aminu's minutes should come from Davis, so his owners in deeper leagues should expect a hit there.
