He's going to talk to a doctor tonight, but for now it sounds like he's avoided injury. Luckily for the Pelicans, they're off for a couple days and won't take on the Wizards until Tuesday.

Anthony Davis scored 25 points during a 115-108 win over the Bucks on Wednesday with 10 rebounds, two assists and four blocks in 36 minutes.

He and DeMarcus Cousins put up a pair of 20-10 lines for the first time this month. Coach Alvin Gentry doesn't really like to limit AD when he's active with this game and a 40-minute effort against the 76ers on Sunday, but AD did not play on Monday. For now, Davis looks like he's healthy as he keeps his fantasy owners on pins and needles most nights.
Dec 14 - 12:18 AM

Anthony Davis (left adductor) is "expected to play" vs. the Bucks on Wednesday.

Davis said after shootaround that he "should be able to go," and that was confirmed by the Pelicans' official twitter feed. We'll update his status once lineups are announced, but it should be safe to activate him in all season-long leagues.
Dec 13 - 7:05 PM

Anthony Davis (left adductor) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with the Bucks.

Davis said he was feeling good after shootaround, and that he "should be able to go" against Milwaukee barring a setback, but ultimately this decision will be made by Alvin Gentry and the Pelicans' medical staff. AD will need to go through his pregame routine before an official decision is made, but if he is able to get back out there, Darius Miller will return to the bench, and DeMarcus Cousins won't be quite as active on offense.

Anthony Davis (left adductor), Dante Cunningham (knee) and Jameer Nelson (ankle) are being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

Davis has missed four of the past six games with this groin issue, so they likely won't be bringing him back until he's cleared 100 percent. We'll have a better idea on his status following shootaround, but if he's out again and Cunningham joins him on the sidelines, Darius Miller would be forced into heavy minutes while DeMarcus Cousins and Jrue Holiday would dominate the offense. If Nelson is out, that'll be good news for Rajon Rondo.
Dec 12 - 4:17 PM

Anthony Davis (left adductor) will not play on Monday vs. the Rockets.

Davis did warm up, so hopefully this is just a day-to-day thing. This injury has now sidelined him for four games this season and looks like it could linger for a while. Dante Cunningham will start in Davis' place, but he's a poor fantasy option. DeMarcus Cousins, Jrue Holiday and E'Twaun Moore will all have increased roles in the offense with Davis out.
Dec 11 - 7:20 PM

Anthony Davis (left adductor) will test out his injury in warmups before making a decision on his status for Monday's game vs. Houston.

Davis played 40 minutes on Sunday and aggravated the same injury that sidelined him for three straight games. It sounds like he could be limited if he plays, so we'll keep our eyes peeled for any word on restrictions.
Dec 11 - 6:38 PM

Anthony Davis (left adductor) is questionable for Monday's game vs. Houston.

Davis had his minute restrictions lifted on Sunday and played 40 minutes, but he appeared to aggravate the same injury that sidelined him for three games. He also jammed his right hand on the rim, but that's not mentioned on the injury report. If Davis can't go, DeMarcus Cousins and Jrue Holiday will do the heavy lifting on offense, while Dante Cunningham and maybe Omer Asik would pick up a handful of minutes.
Dec 11 - 1:00 PM

Anthony Davis racked up 29 points on 11-of-19 field goals and 6-of-9 free throws on Sunday, adding eight rebounds, five blocks, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

Davis appeared to jam his right hand on the rim tonight, and he was later seen grabbing his inner thigh, but neither injury caused him to miss any time. The oft-injured star is no stranger to nagging ailments, but we'll leave him off the injury report for now. When asked about an apparent limp in the fourth quarter, Davis replied, "I don't remember that." Barring a pessimistic update, owners can expect to have him for the second half of the Pelicans' back-to-back set on Monday.
Dec 10 - 11:12 PM

Anthony Davis will not have a minutes limit for Sunday's game against the 76ers.

The Pelicans are on the first game of a back-to-back set, so maybe Alvin Gentry hits him with a minutes restriction for Monday's game in Houston. As for tonight, he should be flirting with minutes in the 30s and is a must-start option everywhere.
Dec 10 - 5:57 PM

Anthony Davis returned on Friday against the Kings with 18 points, six rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes.

He was going to have a cap at around 25 minutes, but this game went to overtime. Davis didn't quite have the explosion he normally does, especially late in the game. He did have a strong stretch in the fourth with eight straight Pelicans points, but he didn't take any shots in the final 8:04 of this loss. The Brow gets a day off on Saturday before he welcomes Joel Embiid and the 76ers to the Big Easy on Sunday. His fantasy owners have to be thrilled he's back out there after such a scary injury last week.
Dec 9 - 1:39 AM

Anthony Davis (adductor) is in the starting lineup on Friday vs. Sacramento.

The Brow is officially back after a three-game absence. Davis said he "feels good," but the Pelicans are going to ease him back into action with a 25-minute limit. Even with restrictions, Davis belongs in season-long fantasy lineups.
Dec 8 - 7:29 PM

Anthony Davis (adductor) is expected to play 25 minutes against the Kings on Friday.

He is going through his pre-game workout and coach Alvin Gentry has said all indications are that AD will be back. With a limited AD, DeMarcus Cousins should still be a monster against his former team, especially after a 40-22 line on Wednesday and a 41-23 stat line against the Kings on Oct. 26. We'll let you know when AD gets the official green light, but get him in your lineup.
Dec 8 - 6:27 PM

Anthony Davis (left adductor strain) told reporters he will be a game-time decision for Friday's matchup vs. the Kings.

Davis said he "feels good" and has been doing "a lot of basketball movements." He told reporters his status would depend on whether or not he felt any increased soreness after shootaround. Davis was unsure if he would be on a minutes restriction if he were able to play. We should have a final answer around 6:30 pm EST. Dante Cunningham will get bumped back to the bench if Davis is cleared to play.
Dec 8 - 12:05 PM

Anthony Davis (left adductor strain) is listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Kings.

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said previously that the team will "err on the side of caution" with AD, but we should have a clearer picture of his status after Friday's shootaround. Dante Cunningham should draw another start if Davis can't suit up, but it's DeMarcus Cousins and Jrue Holiday soaking up most of the offensive touches in his absence.
