Davis rolled up 33 points (14-24 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT) with 16 rebounds, two steals, an assist and a blocked shot over 41 minutes in Friday's 117-107 loss against the Rockets. Davis has been performing well on the road lately, averaging 33.4 points, 12.4 rebounds, 1.4 blocked shot with 1.6 steals per game over his past seven games away from home. Regardless of venue he is an obvious must-start option in all fantasy formats. He'll face the Nuggets on Sunday, a team he scored 50 points against back on Oct. 26. In that game Davis became the first NBA player to post at least 45 points, 15 rebounds, five assists and five steals in a game since steals were recorded in 1973-74.
Davis is dealing with an illness, but will play through it during Tuesday's game against the Grizzlies, Justin Verrier of ESPN.com reports. Davis is expected to start as usual, but the fact that he's dealing with an illness could mean coach Alvin Gentry closely monitors his minutes. He should continue to be activated in season-long leagues, but Davis will be a risky DFS play Tuesday with the potential for the illness to mess with both his playing time and production.
Davis scored 24 points (10-18 FG, 0-1 3 Pt, 4-5 FT) to go along with 15 rebounds, three assists, two blocked shots and a steal across 38 minutes in Friday's 128-112 win over the Rockets. David recorded his 40th double-double of the season Friday, in a game where the Pelicans were without DeMarcus Cousins (knee). Where do we stand with Davis since the 'Two Towers Experiment'? Honestly, not much has changed for Davis, as his output has remained almost identical with his season averages, as his scoring and rebound averages before and after Cousins are all within one percentage point of each other. I'm sure it pains Pelicans fans to say it, but Davis and the rest of the team look pretty darn good without Boogie out there, but it doesn't seem to affect Davis either way. He remains one of the most dependable sources of massive stat lines in the league, and it will be interesting to watch the Pelicans figure out how to deal with Davis and Cousins together moving forward.
Davis contributed 27 points (7-17 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 13-18 FT), eight rebounds, three steals, three blocks and one assist across 35 minutes during a 120-112 loss to the Heat on Wednesday. Davis didn't shoot the ball all that well for the second straight game, but his 27 points were a team high and he also matched a season high with 18 free throw attempts. The three steals were a nice bonus, as he hadn't had at least three swipes in a game since Jan. 29. Davis continues to post excellent all-around numbers, and expect him to start shooting the ball better soon.
Davis (ankle) posted 15 points (5-15 FG, 5-6 FT), 15 rebounds, three blocks, two steals and two assists across 29 minutes during Tuesday's 100-77 win over the Trail Blazers. Davis went to the locker room after coming down awkwardly on his ankle in the second quarter, but he was cleared to return and came back to play 16 more minutes in what was a comfortable victory. The ailment did not appear to hamper Davis upon his return, as he actually posted a better field goal percentage in the second half and was active on the glass while rounding out his double-double. While it appears to be a non-issue at this point, the All-Star bears watching over the next couple of days to ensure there are no lingering effects.
