Anthony Davis powered the Pelicans to a 108-89 win on Sunday with 34 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 33 minutes.
The Celtics had no answer for AD tonight, as he dropped 14-of-24 field goals with a 6-of-8 mark at the line. He also committed just one turnover without a single personal foul, and continues to feast in a post-DeMarcus Cousins offense tailored entirely to his strengths. Davis did hit the court hard a number of times tonight, but he got up every time and should be fine for Tuesday's game vs. Dallas. Mar 18 - 9:10 PM

Anthony Davis double-doubled in Saturday's 107-101 loss to the Rockets, tallying 26 points, 13 rebounds, one assist, one block and two turnovers in 36 minutes.

Davis dominated down low, as the Pelicans made it an effort to feed him in the post early, and he also did a nice job of finishing through contact and picking up bonus points at the line. However, after a hot first half, the Rockets did a really nice job of loading up on AD, denying him the ball and doubling him as soon as he touched the rock, so his production tallied off after halftime. The Pelicans also were a bit over-reliant on Davis and didn’t do a great job of moving the ball, but Rajon Rondo should help them get things back on track on Monday.

Anthony Davis kept it going on Tuesday, hitting 13-of-26 shots and 5-of-6 free throws for 31 points, 14 rebounds, three assists, two steals and five blocks in 39 minutes of a 119-115 win over the Hornets.

He was 0-for-3 from downtown, but the rest of his game was on point. Davis is out of his mind lately, averaging 28.5 points, 10.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.5 steals, 6.0 blocks and 1.8 3-pointers over his last four games. He's the No. 1 player in fantasy this season, any way you slice it, and the Pelicans are in a tense battle for not only playoff seeding, but just to make sure they get in. And that's great news for AD's fantasy teams, as the Pelicans simply have to have him out there every night the rest of the way. Apparently, his ankle is just fine.
Mar 13 - 10:45 PM

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

Davis headed to the tunnel early on Sunday after posting a point-boards-blocks triple-double, but the game was already out of hand and he was likely just gassed. There was also no discussion of an injury after the game, so it looks like owners can plan on having The Brow available on Tuesday night.
Mar 12 - 4:46 PM

Anthony Davis recorded his first career triple-double on Sunday, racking up 25 points, 11 rebounds, 10 blocks, three assists, three steals, one 3-pointer and two turnovers in 40 minutes.

Davis tied his season-high in swats (six) before the first half ended, which tied a franchise record (held by Davis) for the most blocks in a half, and his 10 blocks not only set a personal best but also set the new franchise record for most swats in a single game. This was the first points-boards-blocks triple-double since Hassan Whiteside did it back in 2016, and AD is just the second player in NBA history to amass 9,000 points and 9,000 swats prior to turning 25. The other guy? Shaquille O'Neal. He did, however, exit the game during the closing minutes, but maybe he was just gassed after going wild on his birthday.
Mar 11 - 7:29 PM

Anthony Davis (ankle) will return to the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Jazz, sending Nikola Mirotic back to the bench.

Davis will be back out there following a one-game stint on the sidelines, and Alvin Gentry said he'll be without a minutes limit, so owners shouldn't hesitate to get him active. Mirotic tends to get his minutes regardless of how he enters the game, so the demotion to the second unit won't have much of an impact on his fantasy value.
Mar 11 - 3:23 PM

Anthony Davis (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Sunday against the Jazz, according to coach Alvin Gentry.

"He seems to be OK," Gentry said. Davis went through warmups on Friday and wasn't ruled out until about 50 minutes before tip time. Gentry was encouraged Davis would play in this Sunday game before and after the Friday game, so there's certainly a chance AD can get his third game of the week in here. Expect an update at shootaround tomorrow.
Mar 10 - 3:20 PM

Coach Alvin Gentry said that he is hopeful Anthony Davis (ankle) will play Sunday vs. Utah.

Davis injured his ankle in Wednesday's victory over the Kings. An MRI on the ankle revealed a sprain and Davis did not play Friday vs. the Wizards. "I’m assuming that he will (return)," said Gentry on Friday night when asked about AD's availability for Sunday. "I don’t know that for sure. If he’s healthy and ready to go, we’ll play him. If not, we’ve got to line up and play." Nikola Mirotic started in place of Davis on Friday and finished with nine points and 12 rebounds.
Mar 10 - 10:36 AM

Anthony Davis (ankle) has been ruled out vs. the Wizards on Friday.

This will be the fifth and final update on AD this afternoon, and the Pelicans will indeed hold him out for at least one game. The good news is he has a good chance to play on Sunday, so his fantasy owners could still get three games this week. Nikola Mirotic is likely to start while Emeka Okafor, Ian Clark, Darius Miller and Cheick Diallo may benefit.
Mar 9 - 7:19 PM

Anthony Davis (ankle) is not listed with the starters for Friday against the Wizards.

He is very unlikely to play, but we won't get an official word on him until right before tip. Nikola Mirotic will start and should be busy, and we should see more Darius Miller, Ian Clark and Emeka Okafor. Hopefully, Cheick Diallo gets some extra run, too.
Mar 9 - 7:10 PM

Coach Alvin Gentry confirmed Anthony Davis (ankle) "tried it" in warmups, but the decision on his status won't be made "until there's about 40 seconds left on the clock."

OK then. While AD is doubtful to play today and Gentry said he's unlikely this afternoon, the coach did say he's "optimistic" on AD playing Sunday. "I don't think think it's that big of a deal," Gentry said. "It's a sprained ankle. It'll be OK." With him likely out, we'll see a slew of guys stepping up.
Mar 9 - 6:34 PM

Coach Alvin Gentry said Anthony Davis (ankle) probably won't play on Friday against the Wizards.

He isn't ruled out yet and most signs point to him going through warmups. We'll be updating him every step of the way, so settle in as we look for more updates. How 'bout those Cleveland Browns?
Mar 9 - 6:16 PM

Anthony Davis (ankle) could be going through pregame warmups to feel out whether or not he’s able to play against the Wizards on Friday.

Translation: AD is probably a game-time decision. He doesn't have structural damage in his ankle, and he is technically doubtful to play. We'll obviously be watching this closely with updates along the way. If he's out, there will be more Darius Miller, Emeka Okafor, Ian Clark and hopefully Cheick Diallo.
Mar 9 - 6:00 PM

An MRI on Anthony Davis (ankle) revealed a sprain and he is doubtful to play on Friday against the Wizards.

The MRI was negative for any ligament damage, and he's only day-to-day. This is good news for the Pelicans after AD rolled his ankle as he stepped on Kosta Koufos' foot and he was unable to return on Wednesday. The Pelicans have a huge game coming up against the Jazz on Sunday, so the team may choose to be careful on Friday. If he's out, we'll see more Darius Miller, Emeka Okafor, Ian Clark and Cheick Diallo. Jrue Holiday and Nikola Mirotic will get more shots, too.
Mar 8 - 5:34 PM

Anthony Davis will undergo an MRI on his left ankle Thursday afternoon.

The latest report on Wednesday night was that Davis' ankle started "swelling significantly" prior to their plane ride back to New Orleans. There have been no new updates on Thursday morning, but we'll pass along any additional details. If he does miss time, we can expect to see more of Nikola Mirotic, Emeka Okafor, Cheick Diallo and Darius Miller.
