Anthony Davis (adductor) will not play against the Clippers on Friday night.
The good news is that he's not dealing with a serious injury, but the Pelicans usually are cautious when it comes to playing their superstar at less than 100 percent. With Davis out, Ryan Anderson will start while Dante Cunningham and Alexis Ajinca should play a little more. Plus, expect to see more of Eric Gordon in the offense. Davis' fantasy owners can consider him as questionable for Monday against the Hawks. Jan 30 - 6:26 PM

Anthony Davis (groin) said that he is unsure if he will suit up for Friday's game against the Clippers.

Davis added that will try and do everything in his power to get on the floor tonight, and it's looking like he's destined for the dreaded game-time decision. We'll continue to monitor his status closely, but if he's forced to sit, Ryan Anderson, Alexis Ajinca, and Omer Asik will all likely see extended minutes for the Pelicans.

Updating a previous report, Anthony Davis (groin) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Clippers.

He is dealing with a Grade 1 abductor strain, and he'll be re-evaluated during Friday morning's shootaround. "[Davis is] getting treatment," said head coach Monty Williams. "He’s walking around normally and doing some stuff, but nothing to break a sweat. We’ll see how he feels tomorrow." If Davis sits, Ryan Anderson, Alexis Ajinca, and Omer Asik will be the primary beneficiaries. Stay tuned.

Anthony Davis (groin) has a Grade 1 abductor strain and will be listed as day-to-day.

Though not great news, this is much better than the original reaction when Davis went down Wednesday night. We'll consider him questionable for Friday's game against the Clippers, while Ryan Anderson, Alexis Ajinca, and Omer Asik would stand to benefit if Davis is unable to play.

Anthony Davis (groin) will have an MRI on Thursday.

It was great to see him return from an injury, but coach Monty Williams pulled his star forward because he was laboring. The Pelicans tend to take it easy on Davis when he's not at 100 percent, so we would consider him questionable to play on Friday against Blake Griffin. Davis finished with 24 points, 12 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 37 minutes.

Anthony Davis returned to Wednesday's game in the fourth quarter.

Jan 28 - 10:02 PM

Anthony Davis went to the locker room with a right leg injury in the third quarter of Wednesday's game.

Not good. He needed help off the court and couldn't put much weight on his leg. Davis is probably going to be out for the rest of the game and we'll provide an update as we receive the information. Ryan Anderson, Dante Cunningham and Alexis Ajinca would get more run if he needs to miss time.
Jan 28 - 9:47 PM

Anthony Davis was all over the court against the 76ers during a 99-74 win on Monday, scoring 32 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, three steals and four blocks on 12-of-19 from the field.

Yeah, that toe injury from last week is behind him. In his last four games since that injury, Davis averaged 27.5 points, 10.0 boards, 1.8 assists, 2.5 blocks, 3.3 steals and 1.3 turnovers. He'll get the struggling Denver frontcourt at home on Wednesday, so he's likely looking at another 30-point game for that one.
Jan 26 - 10:40 PM

Anthony Davis returned from his toe injury and hit 11-of-18 shots for 29 points, eight rebounds, three steals and four blocks.

Welcome back, AD! Now get him back in your lineup and put your seatbelt on.

Anthony Davis (toe) will start against the Lakers on Wednesday.

His toe injury was never considered serious, but the Pelicans are obviously going to be extremely cautious with their franchise player. Davis' return will send Ryan Anderson back to bench, while Alexis Ajinca will lose almost all of his fantasy value.
Jan 21 - 11:22 AM

Anthony Davis (toe) has been upgraded to probable for Wednesday's game against the Lakers.

After missing the last three games, it looks like Davis' fantasy owners will get their star player back Wednesday night. Assuming Davis plays, Ryan Anderson will return to a bench role while Alexis Ajinca's fantasy value will take a big hit.
Jan 20 - 2:00 PM

Anthony Davis (toe) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Lakers.

Ryan Anderson will likely get the start if Davis is unable to play for the the fourth consecutive game on Wednesday, but he has been a disappointment as a starter over the last three games. Fantasy owners will want to keep Alexis Ajinca on stand-by in case Davis sits on Wednesday as he's been the biggest beneficiary of Davis' absence.
Jan 20 - 12:56 PM

Anthony Davis (toe) has officially been ruled out for Monday's game.

Pelicans coach Monty Williams suggested that Davis could return vs. the Knicks, but he was ultimately ruled out 90 minutes before tip-off. Ryan Anderson has been underwhelming as a fill-in starter for Davis, and the real winner has been Alexis Ajinca, who is averaging 19.0 points and 10.0 rebounds over the past two games. Owners should consider Davis questionable to return to action during Wednesday's game vs. the Lakers.
Jan 19 - 4:06 PM

Updating a previous report, Pelicans' head coach Monty Williams said that Anthony Davis (toe) could return to the lineup for Monday's game vs. the Knicks.

"[Davis has] a lot better chance of playing [Monday at New York], rather than risk a longer injury," said Williams. "He had a good workout [Sunday], but he still had some soreness. We feel like the best way to go about it is to reevaluate [Sunday] and give him the best chance of playing [Monday]." We'll be monitoring Davis' status closely, but if he sits, Ryan Anderson and Alexis Ajinca will be the primary beneficiaries. Stay tuned.
Jan 18 - 2:36 PM

Anthony Davis (toe) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raptors.

This will be Davis' second consecutive game out of the lineup, and Ryan Anderson will likely draw the start again on Sunday with Alexis Ajinca seeing extended minutes off the bench. Anderson really struggled during his last outing, which was unfortunate considering he was going up against the Sixers, but he'll look to bounce back after Friday's disappointment. Ajinca busted out with a 16-point, 14-rebound outing on Friday, so he makes for an interesting play in daily leagues.
