Davis was arrested in New York City on Tuesday for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports. According to the police report, Davis was booked on third-degree assault and criminal mischief charges stemming from an incident that occurred shortly before 10 p.m. local time at an apartment building in Manhattan. The Raptors acknowledged in a statement Wednesday that they are aware of Davis' arrest and are gathering more information on the matter. After going undrafted out of Mississippi last summer, the 23-year-old Davis showed promise off the Toronto bench in his first NBA season, averaging 7.5 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.3 three-pointers in 16.8 minutes per game over 72 appearances. Davis was expected to have his contract guaranteed for the 2020-21 season prior to the start of free agency in November, but his arrest could prompt the Raptors to re-evaluate his future in the organization.
Davis totaled 14 points (5-10 FG, 4-8 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists across 23 minutes in Sunday's 150-122 win over the Nets. The Raptors hope they won't need a heavy dose of Davis' services anytime soon, but he could be in line for an increased role if Kyle Lowry's (ankle) keeps him sidelined. Davis is just another example of Toronto's depth of talent, which should come in handy against the Celtics, who run with a much tighter rotation.
Davis will start Friday's game against the Nuggets, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports. With most of the Raptors' key players sitting, Davis will make his fourth start of the season. In his previous nods, he's averaged 17.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 27.7 minutes.
Davis tallied 15 points (5-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds and two steals across 19 minutes in Friday's 94-83 scrimmage win over the Rockets in Orlando. Davis is in line to continue his excellent rookie campaign with the Raptors, though a healthy Kyle Lowry and Norman Powell will decrease his contributions to a degree. Still, he will be the first guard off the pine as the second unit shooting guard but can pop on any given night.
Davis posted 20 points (7-15 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one steal in 30 minutes during Saturday's 119-118 win over the Nets. Davis drew the start with Kyle Lowry (neck) and Norman Powell (finger) sidelined and reached double figures in scoring for the fourth straight game. Davis has scored at least 20 four times in his last 16 appearances, though he has also been held scoreless four times during the same stretch of games. The rookie remains somewhat inconsistent due in large part to his fluctuating minutes and role. Nevertheless, Davis is off to a superb start through the first four games of February.
