Lakers' Ed Davis worth a flier
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Lakers forward Ed Davis has a real chance to earn a large role, although he still has some obstacles in his way early in the season.

Davis has long been a productive player on a per-minute basis, but has always struggled to find consistent minutes. His career high in minutes per game came back in 2010-11 when he averaged 24.6 minutes per game for the Raptors. He could exceed that total this season, and the injury Julius Randle suffered on opening night might open up that path.

Davis played just 22 minutes in the opener, but that was mostly a result of foul trouble as he struggled to deal with Dwight Howard. On most nights, Davis won't be quite so overmatched, so we will start to get an idea of what his role is moving forward. He should be the primary backup center, but can also fill in at power forward in a pinch if the team needs more defense than Carlos Boozer provides.

Davis has averaged 11.9 points and 10.2 rebounds per-36 minutes in his career, so he probably isn't a nightly double-double threat even with a larger role. However, he can provide help in defensive categories as well as with percentages, and is worth taking a flier on waivers just in case he takes advantage of this opportunity.

Grizzlies asking little from reserve bigs
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

 Grizzlies reserve big men Ed Davis and Kosta Koufos continue to make little impact, as they played just 19 combined minutes Saturday, in a 79-76 win over the Hawks.

Davis played a bigger role than Koufos in the win, though he ended up with just two points in 14 minutes of action. He was more impactful on the boards, however, grabbing seven rebounds and blocking one shot on defense.

Koufos played just five minutes, and did little to stand out despite attempting six quick shots. He connected on just two of them for four points, while adding three rebounds.

Neither player has managed to do much recently, with Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph both healthy. Koufos is averaging just 3.8 points and 2.5 rebounds over the last five games, while Davis is putting up 2.5 points and 4.0 rebounds in that same span.

Grizzlies reserve big men take a backseat
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

With the return of center Marc Gasol from a knee injury, the Grizzlies big man rotation shrank immediately Tuesday, in a 90-87 win over the Thunder. Reserve big men Ed Davis, Jon Leuer and Kosta Koufos all saw their diminished roles in Gasol's return.

Davis saw the most playing time of the trio at 22 minutes, still a tad lower than his total for the month of January entering the game. He finished with six points and six rebounds on 3 of 6 shooting.

Leuer and Koufos barely saw the floor upon Gasol's return. Though Gasol was limited to just 24 minutes, Leuer and Koufos played just three minutes each, both finishing scoreless, with Leuer adding just a single rebound between them.

The Grizzlies are going to lean heavily on their All-Star big man duo of Gasol and Zach Randolph, leaving little room in the rotation for their backups moving forward.
