Anthony Davis (knee) is probable to play against the Jazz on Saturday.
He had to be carried off the court on Friday, but his outlook was looking a lot better when he showed up on the bench without ice on his knee. Davis' injuries always tend to be overblown, so his fantasy owners have been uneasy numerous times this season. He gets a bad matchup tonight against Rudy Gobert, so he's not the strongest DFS play. You obviously need to start him in season-long leagues. Nov 28 - 3:59 PM

Anthony Davis has been diagnosed with a right knee contusion, and he is questionable to return to Friday's game against the Clippers.

This news can be seen as a positive given that Davis needed to be carried off the court, and the Pelicans medical staff is saying that he did not suffer any structural damage with the injury. He's probably not going to return to Friday's game with the Clippers currently blowing out the Pelicans, but he has returned to the New Orleans bench and is walking under his own power. For now, we're going to consider him on the doubtful side of questionable for Saturday's game against the Jazz.

Anthony Davis suffered a right knee injury and had to be carried to the locker room.

Oh no. He had some contact with Chris Paul and it looked like a contact injury as CP3 got him from the side. Davis also had a right leg injury earlier in this game and the team is currently examining his knee. He left the game with 17 points, six boards and three turnovers. As of right know, he's looking very doubtful to play against the Jazz on Saturday.

Anthony Davis made 11-of-14 from the field for 26 points against the Suns during a 120-114 win on Wednesday, adding 17 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 39 minutes.

Now this is the guy fantasy owners took first in drafts. Since his return from a hip injury, Davis averaged 26.0 points, 18.0 boards, 1.3 steals, 2.7 blocks and 0.3 treys on 52.5 percent from the field and 78.9 percent from the line in those three games. He is dominating around the rim on both ends and he just needs to stay healthy.

Anthony Davis lit up the Suns for 32 points, 19 rebounds, one assist, two steals and four blocks in a narrow victory on Sunday, making 11-of-22 FGs and 9-of-11 FTs.

After overcoming a few minor injuries, Davis is rolling along nicely in his past two games -- he even sank a clutch 3-pointer tonight to maintain the lead with under a minute left. He'll get a few days to rest before heading to Phoenix for a rematch, the first of three road games for New Orleans next week.
Nov 22 - 9:01 PM

Anthony Davis returned from a two-game absence on Friday during a 104-90 win over the Spurs, scoring 20 points with 18 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 39 minutes.

He did have a mild scare today with a small shoulder tweak, but he was fine. The Pelicans finally got a win and now move to 2-11 on the season. Davis' shoulder bothered him before he missed time, so hopefully he can put it behind him. As long as he's healthy, he should be a high-end fantasy asset.

Anthony Davis (shoulder) will play on Friday vs. the Spurs.

He made it through shootaround unscathed, and while coach Alvin Gentry said that he will be a game-time decison, Davis confirmed that he will play. His injury never looked serious, so he shouldn't have any restrictions. Ryan Anderson's value just took a hit, but he is still worth starting in all leagues. Get Davis in your lineup.
Nov 20 - 12:10 PM

Anthony Davis (shoulder) participated in the team's shootaround prior to Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

Davis is listed as questionable, but it's possible that the Pelicans could update his status after the practice. His injury isn't expected to be serious, but the Pelicans are usually always very cautious with their franchise player. If Davis can't go, expect Ryan Anderson to benefit the most.
Nov 20 - 12:07 PM

Anthony Davis (left shoulder) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Spurs.

Davis will likely be a game-time decision on Friday, and if he can't give it a go, Ryan Anderson will be forced into heavy minutes (he played 44 minutes on Wednesday) as the Pelicans starting power forward with zero depth behind him. Stay tuned.
Nov 19 - 4:21 PM

Anthony Davis (left shoulder) will not play vs. the Thunder on Wednesday.

He was listed as a 'probable starter' earlier in the day, but this is just the latest example of game notes being wrong. Details have been scarce but Alvin Gentry said Davis got "a bump" on Sunday and may have aggravated the injury during Tuesday's game -- he's reportedly having trouble raising his arm. We're optimistically considering him day-to-day. Expect Ryan Anderson to get all the minutes he can handle tonight, with extra opportunities opening up for Dante Cunningham, Luke Babbitt and Alexis Ajinca.
Nov 18 - 7:21 PM

Anthony Davis (shoulder) is doubtful to play against the Thunder on Wednesday.

There is still no word on whether or not the Pelicans are going to give him an MRI or really any specific regarding what part of his shoulder is hurting. If he is out, there will be a lot of Ryan Anderson, Luke Babbitt, Dante Cunningham at the five, and three-guard lineups tonight.
Nov 18 - 6:32 PM

Anthony Davis (shoulder) and Omer Asik (illness) are being listed as the probable starters for Wednesday's matchup with the Thunder.

Both players are officially questionable, so them being listed as probable starters in the game notes doesn't mean much. It sounds like both could be headed for a game-time decision, and if neither guy is able to give it a go, Ryan Anderson would be a safe bet to start with either Alexis Ajinca or Dante Cunningham replacing Asik. Anderson is the guy to target in daily leagues sans Davis, but he'll draw a tough matchup against Serge Ibaka, making him a slightly risky option.

Anthony Davis (shoulder) is questionable to play in Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

Davis traveled with the team to OKC, but his status remains up in the air after he forced out of Tuesday's game with a left shoulder injury. Hopefully we get another update on Davis after shootaround, but it sounds like he may be a game-time call tonight. Ryan Anderson would get the start if Davis is forced to sit, but with a tough matchup against Serge Ibaka of the Thunder, Anderson would make for a slightly risky DFS play. Stay tuned.
Nov 18 - 9:49 AM

Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry said that he is uncertain as to whether or not Anthony Davis (left shoulder) will play vs. the Thunder on Wednesday.

The good news is that Davis is traveling with his teammates, but we still don't know the severity of the injury. Davis has three left shoulder injuries on his record and isn't the most durable player, and it's important to note that the Pelicans tend to be very cautious with him. If Davis is unable to play on Wednesday we should see a lot of Ryan Anderson, while Alexis Ajinca should play more as well since Omer Asik is dealing with an illness.
Nov 18 - 12:00 AM

Anthony Davis (shoulder) will not return to Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

We still don't know the severity of the injury, but his shoulder was clearly bothering him and the Pelicans tend to play it safe with Davis. For what it's worth, general manager Dell Demps went to the locker room with Davis. The Pelicans will likely run some tests on him, so we should have another update very soon. Ryan Anderson will benefit the most if Davis misses time, while Alexis Ajinca would play more as well. Davis has three left shoulder injuries on record.
