Anthony Davis scored a game-high 27 points in a win over the Wolves on Monday, adding eight boards, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.
The Pelicans won this one comfortably, so Davis was able to get some valuable rest in the fourth quarter. New Orleans snapped a four-game losing streak tonight, but they still have seven more losses than the eighth seed in the West (Utah). If the Pelicans don't turn their season around, the shut-down risk for Davis will grow. Feb 8 - 11:57 PM

Anthony Davis scored 24 points during a 99-84 loss to the Cavs on Saturday with 11 rebounds and two blocks in 40 minutes.

This might have been the first time in a while Davis didn't have any concerns of injury. Since returning from his concussion, Davis averaged 26.8 points, 11.4 boards, 2.0 assists, 2.0 blocks, 1.2 steals and 0.4 treys in those five. The bad news is that the Pelicans lost again and are now seven games behind the Jazz.
Feb 6 - 10:47 PM

Anthony Davis scored 39 points with 11 rebounds, one steal and one block in 39 minutes against the Lakers during a 99-96 loss on Thursday.

This one will sting a bit. The Pelicans are cold again with a three-game losing streak. Davis did look like he hurt his hand a bit, but he was fine. His fantasy owners have to be rooting for wins to lower the chances of a shutdown later this year. At least he's filling it up again.
Feb 5 - 12:58 AM

Anthony Davis scored 28 points with 10 rebounds, four assists, four steals and four blocks during a 110-97 loss to the Spurs on Wednesday.

Kevin Durant exploded and Stephen Curry dropped 51, so this near 5x5 will probably not get much attention. He is the only player in the last 20 seasons to drop two lines of at least 25 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, four blocks and four steals in his career (Dec. 2, 2014). Stay healthy, big fella.

Anthony Davis scored 23 points during a 110-95 loss on Monday, adding nine rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

His wrist injury from the weekend didn't seem to bother him. Davis isn't quite putting up the same per-minute numbers as he was last year, but his owners won't care as long as he's not missing games.
Feb 2 - 12:14 AM

Anthony Davis scored 20 points in his return from a concussion on Saturday, adding 16 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes.

He had a horrendous start, missing all 10 shots from the field before finishing 9-of-22 overall. Davis did not completely come out of this game unscathed with an apparent left wrist injury. He did play through it and actually turned it on after that. Stay healthy, Mr. Brow.

Anthony Davis (concussion) will play against the Nets on Saturday.

His concussion issue is behind him, which is a pleasant surprise after the scary incident on Monday. Ryan Anderson will move to the bench for tonight's game, but he should still have plenty of chances to score with Tyreke Evans (knee) out.
Jan 30 - 5:27 PM

Anthony Davis (concussion) is not listed with the probable starters for Saturday's game vs. the Nets.

Game notes are very unreliable, but Davis' status is still unclear because the Pelicans did not have a morning shootaround. Davis is still considered questionable, but he is probably a little closer to doubtful. Ryan Anderson will benefit the most if he is held out.
Jan 30 - 1:36 PM

Anthony Davis (concussion) and Tyreke Evans (knee) are questionable to play against the Nets on Saturday.

The probable starters are Norris Cole, Bryce Dejean-Jones, Alonzo Gee, Ryan Anderson and Omer Asik. Davis is improving and may have a shot to play. If he can't go, Ryno will get a chance to build off his 36-point gem. Omer Asik was also very good, but he can't be trusted.
Jan 29 - 6:22 PM

Anthony Davis (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Kings.

Davis has passed the first two parts of the concussion protocol testing, so there's a chance he's able to get back on the court for Saturday's game vs. the Nets. However, with him on the sidelines Thursday night, Ryan Anderson will draw the start, and he'll make for an excellent DFS play with a favorable matchup against Sacramento. Jrue Holiday will also be busy on offense, and he too figures to be a quality DFS target tonight.
Jan 28 - 6:26 PM

Anthony Davis (concussion) is doubtful to play against the Kings on Thursday.

He still has not been cleared and didn't do anything in practice. If Davis can't go, Ryan Anderson should move into the starting lineup while Alexis Ajinca would soak up some center minutes. Considering Davis flirts with a 30 usage rate, so there will be a lot of shots to go around to basically the whole team.
Jan 27 - 5:38 PM

Anthony Davis has yet to clear the league mandated concussion protocol testing, putting him in jeopardy of missing Thursday's game vs. the Kings.

The Pelicans will have a better idea of Davis status on Thursday, so owners will need to check back for another update following Thursday morning's shootaround. If Davis is forced to the sidelines on Thursday, Ryan Anderson would return to the starting lineup, and he'd make for a quality DFS play with a favorable matchup against the Kings. Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans (knee) would also be asked to do more on offense.

Anthony Davis has been diagnosed with a concussion and will not return to Monday's game vs. the Rockets.

He took an elbow to the head before halftime and didn't look right when he was walking to the locker room, so this is not a surprise. Davis is likely looking at some time on the shelf, meaning Ryan Anderson could be poised for a massive week. We will update Davis' status when we know more.
Jan 25 - 9:52 PM

Anthony Davis took an elbow to his head on Monday vs. the Rockets and and is doubtful to return.

He was visibly shaken up and stayed down on the ground for a while, so he will surely be tested for a concussion in the locker room. We will have an update momentarily.
Jan 25 - 9:08 PM

Anthony Davis scored 22 points with seven rebounds, five assists, one steal, four blocks and one 3-pointer during a 116-99 win over the Bucks on Saturday.

He didn't dive into the stands tonight, but he did have a fall around the basket -- he's fine. The Pelicans have won their last three games by at least 15 points, so maybe they're not dead after all. Davis has been a top-four player since returning from his back injury six games ago.
