Hometown hero Anthony Davis was named the MVP of Sunday's All-Star game in New Orleans, scoring an all-time record 52 points on 26-of-39 shooting with 10 rebounds and two steals in 32 minutes.
Davis blew past Wilt Chamberlain's previous record of 42 points, set in the 1961-62 season, and his Western Conference teammates were looking for him in the Pelicans' home arena -- his 39 shots tonight were almost equal to the rest of the West's starting unit combined. Feb 19 - 11:06 PM

Anthony Davis called Russell Westbrook one of his closest friends in the league.

The two share the same agent and are frequently asked questions about teaming up down the line. In fact, Westbrook was asked about joining Davis this weekend, but he answered with a question about fashion. Davis will be starting for his home team on Sunday night.
Feb 18 - 4:34 PM

Anthony Davis scored 19 points with seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks, one steal and three turnovers during a 95-91 win in Memphis on Wednesday.

The Grizzlies continue to do an outstanding job on Davis. In his previous two, Davis averaged 19.0 points, 11.5 boards, 1.0 assists, 3.5 blocks, 1.5 steals and 1.0 treys on 32.5 percent from the field. As he heads into the break, his fantasy owners have to be pleased to see he hasn't missed a game since Jan. 23. The Pelicans are also just 2.5 games out of the eighth spot.
Feb 15 - 11:51 PM

Anthony Davis said he has no plans of leaving the Pelicans.

"I don't plan on leaving, so make sure you write that down," Davis said when asked about trade speculation. Davis also shot down the recent rumors that he's planning on joining up with Russell Westbrook in Los Angeles, saying, "I don't pay attention to [the rumors]. I don't know who said it or how it came about. I'm with the Pelicans right now." Davis is in the first year of a five-year deal, so it would be absolutely shocking to see the rising superstar change jerseys anytime soon.
Feb 15 - 11:01 AM

Anthony Davis led the Pelicans in a 110-108 win over the Suns on Monday, scoring 24 points on 8-of-16 shooting in 40 minutes.

AD was a perfect 8-of-8 from the line and grabbed 10 rebounds with four blocks, two assists and three turnovers. This was Davis' ninth game of the season with 20+ points, 10+ rebounds and 4+ blocks, while the rest of the NBA has 11 such games combined. Davis' outlook should be fine as long as the Pelicans keep their eyes on the No. 8 seed out West.
Feb 14 - 1:37 AM

Anthony Davis scored a game-high 32 points on Sunday, making 11-of-24 field goals and 9-of-9 free throws in road loss to the Kings.

Davis added 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer. The all-around performance negated his six turnovers in most leagues, and he's cruising into the break with top-three roto value (8-cat and 9-cat). The Pelicans are just 3.0 games out of the playoffs, moreover, which reduces the risk that AD will be shut down in the final weeks of the regular season. He's missed only four of the Pelicans' 55 games this season.
Feb 12 - 11:41 PM

Anthony Davis scored 42 points during a 122-106 win in Minnesota on Friday, adding 13 rebounds, two assists, one block, one steal and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He bounced back nicely from a 12-point dud against Rudy Gobert on Wednesday. Davis picked up his 750th block of his career to become the fourth-youngest player to hit that mark. He also had his sixth 40-point scoring game and hit double digits in the first quarter for the 23rd time this season. After a showdown with fellow Kentucky big man Karl-Anthony Towns today, he'll get another one against DeMarcus Cousins on Sunday.
Feb 11 - 1:34 AM

Anthony Davis made just 4-of-12 from the field for 12 points with 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and a season-high six blocks in 30 minutes.

Don't spit in the wind, don't tug on Superman's cape and don't play centers against the Jazz in DFS. Davis' four makes were all dunks and that was it. He was coming in fairly hot and he's also been healthy, so his owners can just throw this one out. He gets a much better matchup against the Wolves on Friday. Davis did tie Rudy Gobert for the lead in blocks per game with 2.5 per outing.
Feb 9 - 12:28 AM

Anthony Davis (quad contusion) scored 34 points on 12-of-21 shooting in Monday's 111-106 win over the Suns.

Davis popped up on the injury report right before tip-off, but played through his quad contusion and looked great, adding nine rebounds, one assist, two steals, five blocks and one triple in 40 minutes. "He’s sore," coach Alvin Gentry said before the game. "It’s just one of those nagging injuries, any time your thigh has an opportunity to tighten up when you’re cooling down. But he’s going to play and give it a shot, and we’ll see what happens with it." The Pelicans play more three more times this week and Sunday's game vs. the Kings is on the front end of a back-to-back set, but Davis' owners know by now that they should double check the injury report prior to every game.

Anthony Davis (quad) will play Monday vs. the Suns.

Davis was spotted limping at times during Saturday's game, but he'll continue to fight through the pain, and he's obviously a must-start guy tonight with a favorable matchup against Phoenix. "He’s sore," Pelicans Coach Alvin Gentry said. "It’s just one of those nagging injuries, any time your thigh has an opportunity to tighten up when you’re cooling down. But he’s going to play and give it a shot, and we’ll see what happens with it."

Feb 6 - 6:57 PM

Anthony Davis scored 25 points with 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and no turnovers in 39 minutes during a 105-91 loss to the Wizards on Saturday.

He was actually below his season average for every one of those stats, but today is a good day for his fantasy owners. Davis has been able to complete each of his last five games, which is a very pleasant sight after the locker room fest we saw last month. Hopefully, he can keep it going.
Feb 4 - 10:14 PM

Anthony Davis scored a team-high 31 points with 12 rebounds, four blocks, two assists and two steals on Wednesday, but it wasn't enough to avoid another road loss.

The last time Davis played in Detroit, he piled up 59 points with 20 rebounds, and Stan Van Gundy joked before the game, "Our goal is to hold him to 58 tonight." The key for Detroit tonight was actually keeping everyone else in check, and New Orleans walked away with their third straight loss. They now trail the Blazers by 3.0 games for the No. 8 seed.
Feb 1 - 11:58 PM

Anthony Davis hit just 4-of-18 shots, missed his only 3-point attempt and missed two free throws in overtime, but still managed to finish Tuesday's 108-106 loss with 18 points, 17 rebounds, three assists, a steal, three blocks and zero turnovers in 41 minutes.

There are a handful of players in the league who can salvage a solid stat line when nothing is going right, and the Brow is definitely in that category. He did play solid defense down the stretch, made some nice stops and hit a couple key shots for the Pelicans, but had he been on his game this likely would have been a relatively easy win over the Raptors.
Jan 31 - 9:50 PM

Anthony Davis scored 36 points with 17 rebounds, three assists, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in Sunday's 107-94 loss to the Wizards.

Davis has played his full allotment of minutes in back-to-back games without suffering any setbacks and appears to have no lingering effects from his quad injury. He filled the stat sheet once again tonight and continues to have a great season, averaging career highs with 27.8 points, 12 rebounds and 2.2 assists (tied career-high) per game. He is injury prone and that is the lone risk in owning him, but when he is on the court, he produces elite numbers.
Jan 29 - 8:17 PM

Anthony Davis (quad) returned to action in Friday's 119-103 win over the Spurs, scoring 16 points with 22 rebounds.

More importantly, Davis didn't go to the locker room tonight -- he went to the locker room in five out of his previous six games and that doesn't include the two DNPs in that span. Davis shot 6-of-11 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line with two assists, one block and one steal, but his team will need to keep in winning in order to decrease the shut-down risk. He gets a matchup with the Wizards on Sunday.
