Anthony Davis played through an illness on Tuesday vs. the Grizzlies and led his team to a 95-82 win with 19 points.
DeMarcus Cousins carried the Pelicans with 41 points, but AD deserves a lot of credit for playing even though he clearly wasn't 100 percent. He finished 9-of-18 from the field after a rough start to the game, adding 13 rebounds in 40 minutes. The Pelicans are only 3.5 games behind the Nuggets for the No. 8 seed, so Davis will finish the season strong if his team remains competitive. Mar 21 - 11:39 PM

Anthony Davis (illness) will play Tuesday vs. the Grizzlies.

Davis also got poked in the eye and hit in the shins during Sunday's game, but none of these ailments will force him to the sidelines. Make sure you've got The Brow active.
Mar 21 - 6:43 PM

Anthony Davis survived a few minor injuries on Sunday to finish a 123-109 home victory with 28 points (11-of-16 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs), 12 rebounds, three assists and five turnovers.

Davis got hit in the eye and banged shins with Karl-Anthony Towns, but neither injury cost him any time. We'll let you know if there's cause for concern. The good news is that the Pelicans' victory moves them closer to playoff contention, ensuring that New Orleans will do whatever they can to keep Davis on the court for a final push.
Mar 19 - 8:55 PM

Anthony Davis scored 24 points during a 128-112 win over the Rockets on Friday, adding 15 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks.

It was still a solid game, but most AD owners probably had higher hopes. In fact, Davis has a 37.4 usage rate in his minutes without DeMarcus Cousins (knee, ribs) since the break, which tops his 29.1 usage rate with Boogie. He's also way better on the glass with a terrific 19.2 total rebounding rate without DMC. If Cousins is out again, AD vs. Karl-Anthony Towns should be a treat.

Anthony Davis (ankle) logged 35 minutes on Wednesday, posting 27 points, eight rebounds, three steals and three blocks, while making 7-of-17 field goals and 13-of-18 free throws.

Davis briefly exited Tuesday 's game with a left ankle injury, but he was never in danger of sitting out tonight. He's a brutal matchup for any big man and Miami starts Luke Babbitt at PF, so it wasn't shocking to see him parade his way to the free throw line tonight. The loss drops New Orleans 5.5 games out of the No. 8 seed, but they show no inclination to rest their key players.
Mar 15 - 11:47 PM

Jrue Holiday, Wayne Selden Jr, Solomon Hill, DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis will start against the Heat on Wednesday.

The Brow is back after an injury scare on Tuesday. He looked fine in his return and even checked back in late in the fourth quarter with a 19-point lead. He should he all set for tonight and hopefully he can avoid another trip to the locker room.
Mar 15 - 7:18 PM

Anthony Davis is not being listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Heat.

Davis tweaked his left ankle during Tuesday's win over the Blazers, but he played through it, and him not being on the injury report suggests that he'll be just fine for tonight's game against Miami. Feel free to get him active.
Mar 15 - 12:53 PM

Anthony Davis finished Tuesday's blowout 100-77 win over the Blazers with 15 points, 15 rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocks on 5-of-15 shooting in 29 minutes, despite suffering an ankle injury during the game.

Davis missed about half of the second quarter after twisting his left ankle, but was able to start the second half. He also re-entered the game with six minutes left in the fourth quarter and the Pelicans up 20, which wouldn't have happened if there were any concerns about AD's ankle, at all. He's fine.
Mar 14 - 11:13 PM

Anthony Davis (ankle) will return to Tuesday's game vs. the Blazers.

He went to the locker room a few minutes before halftime with a slight limp, but X-rays came back negative and he had his ankle re-taped. We'll have an update after the game, but his fantasy owners just dodged a bullet.
Mar 14 - 9:20 PM

Anthony Davis turned his left ankle on Tuesday vs. the Blazers and limped back to the locker room.

Davis rolled his left ankle while guarding Al-Farouq Aminu and tried to play through it for nearly a couple minutes. He was able to walk back to the locker room under his own power, but he will undergo X-rays. We should have another update before the second half, but Jrue Holiday and DeMarcus Cousins will get a bump in usage if AD can't return.
Mar 14 - 8:56 PM

Anthony Davis exploded during a 125-121 overtime win over the Hornets on Saturday, scoring 46 points with 21 rebounds, three assists, one block and four 3-pointers in 45 minutes.

That's not a bad way to celebrate a 24th birthday. He's the first player since 2001 with at least 46 and 21, he's just the sixth player to score more than 44 points on his birthday and this was his 11th 35-point, 15-board game of the season -- the rest of the league has 12. Obviously his wrist injury looked fine with his clutch shooting late, so his owners have a big leg up next week with four games.
Mar 11 - 11:18 PM

Anthony Davis (left wrist contusion) is starting on Saturday vs. the Hornets.

This isn't a surprise after Davis went through a full practice on Friday. X-rays on his wrist were negative and he's dealing with just a minor bruise. Deploy him in all season-long leagues.
Mar 11 - 6:17 PM

Anthony Davis (left wrist contusion) practiced on Friday and will play Saturday vs. Charlotte, according to coach Alvin Gentry.

Davis injured the wrist late in the first half of Wednesday's loss to the Raptors and was unable to return to the game. Fortunately, the X-rays came back negative and it now appears Davis is in the clear. His fantasy owners can finally exhale. Davis has been able to maintain elite fantasy production since the DeMarcus Cousins trade. AD averaged 31.3 points, 10.6 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.3 blocks in his first six games playing alongside Cousins.
Mar 10 - 1:33 PM

X-rays were negative on Anthony Davis' bruised left wrist.

That means he's day-to-day for now, but the Pelicans could be giving him another evaluation to make sure he's OK. It's also worth mentioning that he played through a shoulder injury for a while. The Pelicans are going nowhere fast and look to be sliding out of the playoff race, which could lower the incentive on playing him late. If he misses games, DeMarcus Cousins and Jrue Holiday should dominate while Dante Cunningham should get more minutes.

Anthony Davis (left wrist contusion) will not return against the Raptors on Wednesday.

He had a really hard fall with just six seconds left in the first half, but he did shoot the free throws. He did not show up on the bench from halftime until the time of this report in the fourth quarter. Davis did have a minor left wrist injury back in January, but it's tough to say this is related. As we all know, he's dealt with a lot of bumps and bruises and it's anyone's guess how long he'll be out. He finished with seven points, four rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 17 minutes. If he's out, DeMarcus Cousins and Jrue Holiday will lead the charge and there will be shots to go around to all. Nobody is really a pickup expect for Jordan Crawford or Dante Cunningham in deeper leagues.
