Ed Davis came off the bench and played just 22 minutes, but had 14 points, nine rebounds and a steal in Wednesday's OT win over the Wolves.
Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill have been taken out of action, in our opinion, for tanking purposes, so Davis is worth a look if you need a big man. We'd like him more if he were starting over Ryan Kelly or Tarik Black, but there's a possibility he ends up in the starting five at some point. None of them look like must-own players though, despite the opportunities that are coming their way. Mar 26 - 1:31 AM

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis made all five of his shot attempts on Tuesday, but he played only 16 minutes and finished with 12 points, three rebounds, one steal and one block.

Byron Scott has suggested that he'll start Davis soon, possibly for the remainder of the season, making him a sneaky pickup despite tonight's lackluster numbers. With top-80 value as a reserve over the past month, Davis doesn't even need a promotion to help fantasy owners in standard leagues.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis could soon join the starting lineup, but it's unclear who he'd replace.

It would either be Jordan Hill or Tarik Black. As a starter, Davis is averaging 8.8 points, 6.8 rebounds, 0.5 steals and 1.1 blocks on 56.8 percent shooting over 24 games. Seeing as how he's producing that line in just 26 minutes per contest, Davis has plenty of room to contribute for fantasy owners if he's ever unleashed.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis came off the Lakers bench for eight points, 11 rebounds and four blocks on Sunday, helping L.A. hold on for a 101-87 win vs. the visiting Sixers.

His play was bigger than the stat line reveals, particularly in the decisive fourth quarter, but Davis is trapped as a late-round value due to limited playing time -- he's played 30+ minutes just three times since Jan. 1.
Mar 23 - 12:38 AM
Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis played just 18 minutes on Monday against the Warriors, scoring four points on 1-of-2 shooting with four rebounds, three assists and three blocks.

Davis has been running well lately and owners can forgive this low-minute outing. The Lakers were in a tight game with the Warriors, so naturally Byron Scott turned his veterans -- for better or worse.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis came to life late in Sunday's home loss, which he finished with seven points, a game-high 13 rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocks.

He did his damage in just 24 minutes and was the catalyst for a late charge by the Lakers, but it proved to be too little, too late. Davis has done enough for standard league value despite his awful FT shooting (1-of-3 tonight), but he won't truly break out while stuck in a reserve role behind Jordan Hill and Tarik Black.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis played 23 minutes against the Knicks on Thursday with seven points, 10 boards, one assist and three steals.

He had his bad game on Sunday, but only played next to Carlos Boozer and Jeremy Lin in that game. However, now Davis is getting run in a number of lineup combinations, which will help him get his minutes in the mid-20s. Davis is still a hold in standard leagues due to his blocks and great field goal shooting.
Mar 13 - 2:34 AM
Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis had 14 points, 12 rebounds, three steals and a block on 7-of-10 shooting in Wednesday's loss to the Heat.

Davis has been rebounding the ball well, but his scoring is still suspect. He's averaging 10.0 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.8 blocks over his last five games, making him worth a look in many leagues.
Mar 5 - 1:22 AM
Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis came off the bench for 12 points, nine boards, a steal and three blocks on 6-of-8 shooting in 28 minutes in Wednesday's win.

Davis is kind of hot right now, averaging 9.4 points, 9.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.0 steals, 2.0 blocks and is shooting 64 percent in 25 minutes over his last five games. And that makes him worth owning, especially if you're trying to squeeze some juice out of a guy like Al-Farouq Aminu.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis scored 16 points on 8-of-10 shooting with 14 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 28 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Nets.

Davis has been playing well enough to be a must-own player lately and he solidified that position tonight. Byron Scott is all over the board lately, but Davis has been surviving the randomness and chaos of Lakers basketball.
Feb 21 - 5:03 AM
Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis came off the bench for eight points, 11 rebounds, three assists, a steal and three blocks on 4-of-7 shooting.

He played 24 minutes and is coming on, averaging 8.2 points, 10.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.8 blocks in 25 minutes over his last five games. Carlos Boozer will continue to be a buzzkill for Davis, but he's playing well enough to be owned in fantasy leagues right now.
Feb 12 - 1:13 AM
Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis confirmed that he plans to opt out of his contract after the season, but expressed a desire to remain with the Lakers long-term.

"This is definitely my first option," Davis said. "They’re a team that gave me a look last summer when not too many teams were calling. This is definitely where I want to be at. Hopefully I can stay here for the rest of my career." Even with Julius Randle (leg) returning next season, re-signing Davis makes a ton of sense for the Lakers. Los Angeles would be wise to lock him up on a reasonable multi-year deal in free agency.
Feb 9 - 10:13 AM
Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis flirted with a double-double during Sunday's blowout loss to the Cavs, scoring 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting (4-of-4 from the stripe), with nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block through 24 minutes of action.

Davis has emerged as one of the primary beneficiaries with Jordan Hill (hip) sidelined, and he's worth a look in deeper leagues for those seeking some shot blocking and rebounding. However, as a guy coming off the bench for a team that is interested in losing, consistency will certainly be an issue.
Feb 8 - 6:43 PM
Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis will turn down his player option for next season in the hope of signing a long-term deal with the Lakers.

The move comes as no surprise as Davis is in line for a significant raise after averaging 8.0 points, 7.3 boards and 1.1 blocks in 24.1 minutes per game. "I’m hoping for a long-term deal," said Davis. "I’d love to return here. I know this will turn around eventually." While Davis made it clear that he wants to remain in Los Angeles, he is sure to command a lot of interest prior to the Feb. 19 trade deadline due to his reasonable contract, so he's definitely a name to watch in the coming weeks.
Feb 6 - 9:21 AM
Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis hit just 2-of-8 shots for seven points, but also added a season-high 20 rebounds, three assists and a block in 33 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

His previous high in boards this season was 14 and he was a beast on the glass. As long as he's coming off the bench, he'll see inconsistent minutes, but he might be able to overtake Ryan Kelly (who has been useless) or Tarik Black (who is unproven) for a starter's job at some point soon. The Lakers blew a late lead and ended up losing to the Bucks in overtime.
