Anthony Davis made 3-of-14 from the field against the Blazers on Saturday with seven points, six rebounds, one assist, one steal and five blocks in 28 minutes.
He was actually held in check by Joel Freeland tonight and he had an up-close view of LaMarcus Aldridge hitting midrange jumpers all night. Davis didn't shoot below 33.3 percent from the field in any of his previous games, so this is obviously is worst offensive showing. He gets a date with Serge Ibaka on Sunday. Dec 20 - 9:14 PM

Anthony Davis went off against the Rockets on Thursday during a 99-90 win with 30 points, 14 boards, three assists, two steals and five blocks.

He made 10-of-17 from the field, 10-of-12 from the line and only turned it over once. Davis already has eight 30-point games and raised his scoring to 24.8 points per game, ranking fourth in the NBA. The future is now for the best power forward in the NBA.

Anthony Davis scored 31 points in a win vs. the Jazz on Tuesday, adding nine boards, one assist, one steal and three blocks in 35 minutes.

After missing Sunday's game vs. the Warriors with a chest injury, Davis returned in style and was a force on both ends of the court. He shot 12-of-15 from the field and a perfect 7-of-7 from the free throw line to the delight of his owners. Davis has been the No. 1 player in fantasy basketball this season, and barring another injury he should be able to maintain that status moving forward.

Anthony Davis will wear a protective flak jacket for Tuesday's game vs. the Jazz to protect his chest from further injury.

Davis has not practiced while wearing the flak jacket, but stated that it will not be an issue. Go ahead and get the No. 1 player in fantasy basketball active for an extremely favorable matchup vs. the Jazz.
Dec 16 - 6:55 PM

Anthony Davis (chest) will return to the Pelicans' lineup on Tuesday against the Jazz.

The Brow is back! Fantasy owners can feel free to plug Davis back into their lineups for Tuesday night, while Ryan Anderson, Tyreke Evans, and Jrue Holiday will miss out on the value bump they would've seen if Davis was unable to play on Tuesday.
Dec 16 - 12:15 PM

Anthony Davis (chest) was present at shootaround on Tuesday in advance of the Pelicans' game against the Jazz.

Davis was also seen shooting trick shots from the stands, so we'll take that as a good sign for his availability. We'll update Davis' status as soon as information becomes available, but Ryan Anderson, Tyreke Evans, and Jrue Holiday would all see a bump in their fantasy value if Brow can't go.
Dec 16 - 11:37 AM

Anthony Davis (chest) is questionable to face the Jazz on Tuesday.

The team ruled him out before shootaround on Sunday, so he's likely headed to the dreaded game-time decision. The Pelicans get four games this week, so fantasy owners in weekly leagues should probably roll with fantasy basketball's best player. One would think two games would be the worst case, but it's possible he misses time.
Dec 15 - 6:33 PM

Anthony Davis (chest) will not play Sunday vs. the Warriors, and he is being listed as day-to-day with no official timetable for a return.

Ryan Anderson will start in Davis' place on Sunday, and there will be more shots to go around for guys like Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans. Evans put up 31 points and 10 assists during his last outing, and he'll look to carry that momentum into Sunday's game. Holiday, Evans, and Anderson will all see their value increased with Davis sidelined and make for solid options in daily leagues.

Anthony Davis (chest) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Warriors, though X-rays and an MRI came back clean.

He didn't participate in practice on Saturday and he was actually held overnight in a hospital for testing, but that is what you will come to expect when you are dealing with a player of this magnitude. New Orleans will likely be extremely cautious with Davis, and it would come as no surprise if he sat out on Sunday. Ryan Anderson would be the biggest beneficiary if Davis misses any time, and we should know more after Sunday's shootaround. Stay tuned.
Dec 13 - 1:17 PM

Anthony Davis (chest contusion) is OK and it will be up to him on whether he will play on Sunday vs. the Warriors.

His owners can finally breathe easy as there had to be some concern after Davis said the pain in his chest did not get better as the game went on. However, there is still a chance that he sits out on Sunday given how cautious the Pelicans will want to be with their superstar so owners will want to check back for official confirmation before tip-off. Consider him day-to-day for now and expect to see a lot of Ryan Anderson if Davis sits.
Dec 13 - 11:39 AM

Coach Monty Williams said the team will have a better idea of Anthony Davis' (chest contusion) injury on Saturday.

Davis said the pain in his chest did not decrease as the night went on, but the good news is that nothing is broken in his ribcage. He looked like Superman earlier this year, but he's had a jammed toe and this injury in the past three days, suddenly reminding us about his injury concerns heading into the season. Hopefully he can suit up against the Warriors on Sunday.
Dec 13 - 2:28 AM

Anthony Davis (chest contusion) went to the locker room with a chest injury on Friday and is questionable to return.

X-rays were negative, so that's a great sign for Davis. He might just be dealing with some bruising and it doesn't sound like a long-term injury at this juncture. Stay tuned.
Dec 12 - 8:46 PM

Anthony Davis had 31 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, zero steals and two blocks, hitting 11-of-20 shots and 9-of-9 free throws in Wednesday's loss to the Mavericks.

Owners can complain about the lack of steals, but no one is going to feel sorry for you. Davis suffered a toe injury tonight, but played through it and said after the game that he's "fine." It doesn't sound like a big deal and if he stays healthy, he's going to easily finish as the No. 1 fantasy player this season.
Dec 11 - 12:40 AM

Anthony Davis had his first game of the season without a steal against the Clippers during a 120-100 loss, adding 26 points, three rebounds and one block.

He made 9-of-15 from the field and 8-of-9 from the line, so it wasn't all bad considering he also had a season low in boards (previous low was eight). Davis will get the Lakers on Sunday, so he'll probably bounce back with a career night following this dud. By the way, calling this game a dud is just a testament to what kind of season he's having this year.
Dec 7 - 1:01 AM

Anthony Davis was doing Anthony Davis things again on Thursday against the Warriors with 30 points, 15 rebounds, three assists, two steals and three blocks.

He joined DeMarcus Cousins as the only two players this season with multiple 30-point, 15-board games. Davis is putting up one of the biggest seasons in the history of the NBA and there is really no sign of him slowing down. On top of all of the offense, the big man averaging over three blocks and two steals per game is something special. The only two players to ever do that for a season are David Robinson and Hakeem Olajuwon (three times). Those guys were pretty good.
