      Trailblazers' Ed Davis: Registers third double-double of season in loss

      Davis tallied 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-4 FT), 13 rebounds (five offensive), three steals, two blocks, and two assists over 35 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Bulls. Though he has yet to start any of the Blazers' 16 games this season, Davis already has three double-doubles on his ledger. Coach Terry Stotts has been using Noah Vonleh or Chris Kaman as his starting power forward while Meyers Leonard (shoulder) has been out, but Davis probably offers more upside than either player, despite his continued presence on the bench. Over his career, Davis has been quite an effective rebounder on a per-minute basis, and that skill should make him a worthy target for those in deep leagues looking for help in that category, at least until Leonard returns.

      Trailblazers' Ed Davis: Posts huge double-double Friday

      Davis posted a season-high 17 points (7-8 FG, 3-4 FT), 15 rebounds and a block over 31 minutes in Friday's 102-91 victory over the Clippers. It was a momentous night for the Blazers' off-season free-agent acquisition, who posted a season best in points and tallied a career high in offensive rebounds with 10. He also became Portland's first player to contribute at least 15 points and 15 boards in a bench role since 2006. Davis has certainly been serviceable in a reserve role and a couple of spot starts to date this season, but the production in Friday's game was largely unexpected. Although it was certainly welcome by those who may have nabbed him as a punt play in daily formats, his overall performance this season would lead one to label the breakout night as an outlier for the moment.

      Trailblazers' Ed Davis: Scores three in Wednesday's game

      Davis scored three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 FT) and grabbed three rebounds in Wednesday's loss to Houston. Davis has't been looked to as an option to start in Meyers Leonard's (shoulder) absence. Despite now being the likely number two power forward on the roster Davis has't seen an uptick in his minutes and has hovered around his season averages of 5.4 points and 6.6 rebounds per game this season.

      Trailblazers' Ed Davis: Bypassed for start in favor of Vonleh

      Updating a previous report, Davis was bypassed for the start at power forward in Sunday's game against the Hornets, as the Blazers decided to go with Noah Vonleh in that spot, Jason Quick of CSN Northwest reports. After Meyers Leonard (shoulder) was ruled out for at least a month a few days earlier, Chris Kaman received the first crack at filling the starting spot in Friday's game against the Grizzlies, and it was initially reported that the next opportunity would go to Davis. However, coach Terry Stotts made the late choice to give Vonleh his first start of the season against the team that drafted him. Davis has ranked ahead of both Vonleh and Kaman in the Blazers' frontcourt rotation throughout the season, so even while he remains relegated to a bench role for the time being, Davis still likely maintains the most fantasy appeal of the three big men.

      Trailblazers' Ed Davis: To start Sunday

      Davis will start at power forward Sunday against the Hornets. Chris Kaman entered the starting lineup Friday against the Grizzlies in what marked the Blazers' first game without Meyers Leonard (shoulder), but he didn't do much to impress, collecting eight points, four rebounds, and three assists in 24 minutes. Prior to Leonard's injury, Davis had ranked ahead of Kaman in the pecking order for playing time in the Portland frontcourt, so it's not too surprising that Davis was quickly able to take the reins of a starting role. With Leonard expected to miss at least a month with the injury, opportunity knocks for Davis, who had already helped out deep leaguers by hauling in 7.4 rebounds per game this season while averaging just 20.3 minutes.

      Trailblazers' Ed Davis: Will not start Thursday

      With Meyers Leonard (ankle) able to start Thursday night, according to Joe Freeman of The Oregonian, Davis will come off the bench like he usually does. Davis had a shot to start Thursday if Leonard was held out, but it turns out Leonard will be able to take his usual spot in the starting lineup. While Davis will come off the bench, he could see more minutes Thursday if Leonard is limited at all.

      Trailblazers' Ed Davis: Could enter starting lineup Thursday

      Davis could enter the starting lineup at power forward for Thursday's game against the Grizzlies. The normal starter at power forward, Meyers Leonard, sprained his ankle a night earlier and is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game, making it likely that Davis, the Blazers' top frontcourt reserve makes his first start of the season. Davis replaced Leonard to start the second half of Wednesday's loss to the Suns and figures to be the primary beneficiary of increased minutes Thursday, though Maurice Harkless will also remain a factor when the Blazers utilize small-ball lineups. Davis has pulled down an impressive 8.2 boards per game while averaging just 22 minutes in five contests, so if he's able to pick up around 30 minutes Thursday, a double-double could easily be attainable.

      Trailblazers' Ed Davis: Near double-double in preseason win

      Davis tallied nine points (4-6 FG, 1-2 FT), 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal and four blocks in a preseason win over the Jazz on Sunday. Davis has a great opportunity here in Portland with most of the talent leaving for other teams. He'll likely be the first big man off the bench for the Blazers, but should still see well over 20 minutes per game with the uncertainty in the frontcourt. If Meyes Leonard or Mason Plumless struggle, Davis is worth an add in nay format to test the waters.

      Trailblazers' Ed Davis: Picks up five points, seven rebounds

      Davis recorded five points (2-2 FG, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, and two blocked shots over 16 minutes in Monday's preseason win over the Jazz. Davis brought plenty of energy coming off the Blazers' bench, though he was a tad too aggressive at times with four fouls. The 6-foot-10 big man has bounced around the league over the last six seasons, but he should find a role in the Blazers' frontcourt rotation after the team noticed several personnel losses during the offseason. Davis and Noah Vonleh are expected to serve as the top two bigs off the bench behind presumptive starters Meyers Leonard and Mason Plumlee.

      Blazers sign Ed Davis on Thursday

      The Trail Blazers made the Ed Davis signing official Thursday, the team announced. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but previous reports indicated the contract was worth $20 million over three years. "Ed's ability to impact the game from both the center and power forward positions will provide us with the opportunity to utilize his length, athleticism and rim protection from multiple areas of the floor," Neil Olshey said, president of basketball operations for the Blazers.
