Anthony Davis is not on the injury report for Sunday's game against the Thunder.
This is good news after Davis gave us a scare with a right shoulder injury. There wasn't any concern about him after the game, so he's apparently good to go. Coach Alvin Gentry did say the Clippers limiting Davis on Friday was "a little bit of both" regarding the defense and his injury. Dec 3 - 3:14 PM

Date:

Anthony Davis (right shoulder) returned to Friday's game vs. the Clippers and looked fine, scoring 21 points on 8-of-17 shooting in 31 minutes.

He bumped into Marreese Speights in the first quarter and was in the locker room for about 10 minutes, but it didn't seem to bother him down the stretch. This isn't the same shoulder that had a partial tear last season, so there's no real concern here and we haven't heard anything about the Pelicans running any tests. He grabbed six rebounds with four assists, one steal and one block and he should be ready to go for Sunday's game vs. the Thunder.

Anthony Davis (right shoulder) has returned to Friday's game vs. the Clippers.

He played the whole first quarter before heading to the locker room, but returned with three minutes left before halftime. The replay showed Davis colliding with Marreese Speights, but it looked very minor. It looks like Davis is in the clear, but this is why it's important to handcuff him with Terrence Jones on your fantasy team. We'll have an update after the game.

Anthony Davis (right shoulder) is questionable to return Friday night against the Clippers.

This is the same right shoulder he had problems with two seasons ago, but not the left shoulder with a partial tear from last year. Davis didn't appear to be hurt, so it's all a guessing game right now. We'll have another update once we have more info.
Dec 2 - 8:43 PM

Anthony Davis torched the Lakers for 41 points, 16 rebounds, three assists, four steals, two blocks, a 3-pointer and just one turnover in 41 minutes in Monday's blowout win over the Lakers.

Wow. He had 75.7 Fanduel points, hit 14-of-27 shots and 12-of-14 free throws, so hopefully you didn't fade him tonight. Since scoring just 13 points in 19 minutes against the Hawks a week ago (when he tweaked his knee), he's scored at least 31 points in four straight games and is averaging 38.3 points, 13.0 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 2.0 steals, 2.3 blocks, 1.3 3-pointers and just 2.0 turnovers over that stretch. He's an obvious sell-high candidate based on his injury history, but that's easier said than done when you're enjoying the fruits of his labor right now.

Anthony Davis exploded for 36 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 40 minutes on Sunday, making 12-of-22 FGs and 12-of-14 FTs in a losing effort.

Davis padded his league-leading scoring average of 31.3 points per game and continues to hold down the No. 1 spot for roto value. Unfortunately, he got absolutely no help tonight with his teammates shooting a combined 18-of-55 from the field (32.7 percent) against one of the league's worst defenses. They'll look to get back on track vs. the visiting Lakers on Tuesday.
Nov 27 - 10:31 PM

Anthony Davis scored 31 points with 13 rebounds, two assists, five blocks and two 3-pointers in 43 minutes vs. the Blazers on Friday.

The loss snaps a four-game winning streak for the Pelicans. It was just another day at the office for Davis, as he registered a season-high five blocks with his 11th game of 30 or more points on the season. Davis is the No. 1 player in 8-cat and 9-cat leagues, so his trade value can't be any higher.
Nov 26 - 1:40 AM

Anthony Davis (right knee) blew up again on Wednesday with 45 points (17-of-27 FGs, 9-of-10 FTs), 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

This is already Davis' third 40 & 10 game of the young season, and he's on pace to return No. 1 fantasy value in 9-cat and 8-cat leagues. The standard injury caveat applies, and he's dealt with a few minor ailments in the past week alone, but he's still the ultimate high-risk, high-reward player in the NBA. If you're leery of his health and looking to trade him, at least make sure you're getting elite value in return.
Nov 24 - 1:20 AM

Tim Frazier, E'Twaun Moore, Dante Cunningham, Anthony Davis and Omer Asik will start against the Wolves on Wednesday.

Davis and Terrence Jones were both expected to play today, so they should be good to go. Hopefully, Davis doesn't jump into the stands today.
Nov 23 - 8:49 PM

Anthony Davis (knee) and Terrence Jones (illness) are both expected to play on Wednesday, according to coach Alvin Gentry.

Both guys were considered probable so this merely confirms that they're on pace to play tonight. Plug both guys into your lineups with confidence.
Nov 23 - 7:57 PM

Anthony Davis (right knee) and Terrence Jones (illness) are probable to play Wednesday vs. the Timberwolves.

Davis exited Tuesday's game with the knee contusion, but he eventually returned despite the game being a blowout and he didn't appear to be favoring the knee. Jones has been playing through his illness, and that trend looks likely to continue on Wednesday night. Owners of both Davis and Jones can deploy them with confidence.
Nov 23 - 12:25 PM

Anthony Davis suffered a right knee contusion in the first quarter of Tuesday's blowout win against the Hawks, then returned to the game with the Pelicans up by about 30 late.

He finished with 13 points, three rebounds, a steal and three blocks in just 19 minutes of action. Alvin Gentry said after the game that he played Davis in the blowout to see how he looked on his knee as the Pelicans get ready for Minnesota on Wednesday night. Davis looked fine and a contusion is nothing more than a bruise, and X-rays were negative. He did have some swelling, but at this point it looks like he'll be a go on Wednesday, although we're still not really sure why he was playing on a balky knee in a game that was already decided. The Pelicans have now won three straight games.
Nov 22 - 10:41 PM

Anthony Davis (right knee contusion) returned to Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks.

He was in the locker room since the 6-minute mark of the first quarter, but coach Alvin Gentry put his superstar back in for the fourth quarter. Pelicans reporter Jennifer Hale said that X-rays were negative, but added that he does have a little bit of swelling in his right knee. We'll have an update after the game.
Nov 22 - 9:21 PM

Anthony Davis (right knee contusion) is questionable to return Tuesday vs. the Hawks.

Davis banged his right knee against a chair after diving after a loose ball in the stands. X-rays came back negative, but the Pelicans' training staff are still evaluating him in the locker room and we may not get another update until after the game -- the Pelicans are blowing out the Hawks so they might just keep him in the locker room the rest of the night. Terrence Jones is having an excellent game and shouldn't be on the waiver wire.
Nov 22 - 8:20 PM

Anthony Davis left Tuesday's game vs. Atlanta and went back to the locker room.

Davis dived for a loose ball and ended up colliding with a chair in the third or fourth row. He played one possession after that and was seen limping around and grimacing, then immediately went to the locker room during the timeout. Stay tuned.
