Ed Davis started in place of Zach Randolph (illness) on Wednesday, but played just 13 minutes, missed both his shots and finished with zero points, one rebound and one block.
So much for that. Z-Bo won't be out for long and we're just hoping you didn't take the bait and toss Davis into a lineup tonight. Mar 5 - 11:37 PM

Ed Davis will start at power forward in place of Zach Randolph (illness) for Wednesday's game vs. the Nets.

When Randolph hasn't been on the court, most of the minutes at power forward have gone to James Johnson, so he might be in for plenty of playing time especially against a smaller Nets team. Davis is a risky play in most leagues while Johnson is a pick-and-play option.
Mar 5 - 7:23 PM

Ed Davis stepped up on Wednesday with 14 points, nine boards and one assist on 7-of-8 shooting vs. the Bucks.

Marc Gasol played just 14 minutes tonight and Davis was a more effective player. That won't happen too often, so fantasy owners can pretty much disregard Boss' explosion tonight.
Jan 16 - 12:37 AM

Ed Davis double-doubled with 10 points and a career-high 17 rebounds in 30 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Suns.

Davis also chipped in with three blocks and he had a similar line on Sunday, but he and fellow reserve Jon Leuer have oscillated in their production, and with Marc Gasol's return on the horizon he's a short-term desperation pickup at best.
Jan 11 - 1:31 AM

Ed Davis was outstanding vs. the Pistons on Sunday with 17 points, 11 boards and one block on 7-of-11 shooting in 17 minutes.

He had a horrible start to the game with his first two minutes including two fouls, two turnovers and one rebound. Davis was getting the ball on the move in pick-and-rolls while also hitting the glass hard on both ends. He's been a little too inconsistent to pick up in most leagues, especially with Marc Gasol doing light workouts.
Jan 5 - 4:23 PM

Ed Davis cooled off on Friday against the Nuggets, playing just 19 minutes with five points on 1-of-5 shooting, two rebounds and one steal.

Davis went for 16 and 11 on Thursday but predictably couldn't keep things up given his tenuous bench role. With Marc Gasol returning soon there's not enough to grab onto here for fantasy owners.
Jan 4 - 2:11 AM

Ed Davis hit 8-of-11 shots on his way to 16 points, 11 rebounds, two steals and zero blocks in just 22 minutes on Thursday.

This was quite a game for Davis, considering Zach Randolph had 20 points and 15 rebounds and Davis came off the bench. Davis is averaging 10.6 points and just 4.8 rebounds over his last five games and Marc Gasol is rumored to be nearing a return. Therefore, we'd recommend just leaving Davis on waivers for now. While this wasn't a season high in rebounds for Davis, it was the first time he hit double figures there since Dec. 3.
Jan 3 - 12:41 AM

Ed Davis hit 6-of-8 shots for 17 points (and just one rebound) in 23 minutes off the bench on Saturday, but also had a steal and a block.

He appears to have passed Jon Leuer on the depth chart, but as long as Zach Randolph is healthy, probably won't have any fantasy value. Just keep an eye on him.
Sun, Dec 29, 2013 01:11:00 AM

Ed Davis made his third start of the season on Saturday, notching 10 points, four boards and two blocks in 25 minutes vs. the Knicks.

He played center and reduced Kosta Koufos to just 16 minutes off the bench, while fellow big man Jon Leuer played 17 minutes. Leuer has been the most consistent value of the trio in December, but a reliable 25-minute role would be enough for Davis to provide a trickle of high-percentage points, rebounds and blocks.
Sat, Dec 21, 2013 02:59:00 PM

Ed Davis scored 12 points against the Mavericks on Wednesday with two boards on 6-of-11 shooting.

He hasn't really be making much of a splash for the shorthanded Grizzlies and isn't worth owning in most formats. Davis' value is even less considering Marc Gasol (knee) ditched his crutches this week.
Thu, Dec 19, 2013 01:32:00 AM

Ed Davis played 24 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday, scoring 12 points with three boards, one steal and two blocks on 5-of-8 shooting.

He more or less split time at power forward with Zach Randolph in a bit of foul trouble, so the 28 minutes is a little misleading. Davis missed four games with an ankle sprain and is only worth a look in deeper leagues for now.
Sat, Dec 14, 2013 12:02:00 AM

Ed Davis will return to the lineup to face the Pelicans on Friday.

He missed four games with an ankle sprain and it's unclear how many minutes he'll get tonight. Jon Leuer has been terrific in his last three games, averaging 16.0 points and 8.0 boards. Davis can be kept on the wire in the majority of leagues.
Fri, Dec 13, 2013 06:54:00 PM

Ed Davis (ankle) is expected to return on Friday after going through shootaround without any setbacks.

His return is welcome news for the short-handed Grizzlies, but it won't help fantasy owners who are capitalizing on Jon Leuer's recent hot streak.
Fri, Dec 13, 2013 01:55:00 PM

Ed Davis (ankle) is targeting a Friday return to the court for the Grizzlies' game against the Pelicans.

Davis had been playing well before missing the Grizzlies' last three games, but that was also while Zach Randolph was out of the lineup. The UNC alum is still worth owning in deep leagues, however, as he should still see 20-plus minutes while he and Kosta Koufos fill in for the injured Marc Gasol. Owners who have been riding Jon Leuer's increased playing time will want to take note of Davis' status for Friday, as a return to the lineup would push Leuer's minutes back down.
Thu, Dec 12, 2013 11:03:00 AM

Ed Davis (ankle) is not expected to play vs. the Thunder on Wednesday.

He went through part of shootaround but his ankle is still sore, leaving Jon Leuer as the likely first big man off the bench. In the past four games, Leuer is averaging 15.0 points, 8.5 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 0.8 blocks, while shooting well from the field and the FT line.
