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.
Davis is in the starting lineup Saturday against the Nets, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports. The 22-year-old is coming off a 17-points, eight-rebound performance Friday against the Pacers, and he'll join the starting lineup a day later in place of Kyle Lowry (neck). Davis is averaging 19.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.0 steal in 26.7 minutes over the last three games.
Davis ended with 17 points (7-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 25 minutes during Friday's 115-106 victory over the Pacers. Davis continues to flourish in the absence of Norman Powell (finger). He has been a top-75 player over the past two weeks, climbing to be inside the top-50 over the past week. Powell could miss extended time meaning Davis should continue to get plenty of run off the bench. Although the value is somewhat short-term, Davis is worth considering in standard leagues.
Davis poured in a career-high 31 points (12-15 FG, 6-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go with four rebounds and one assist in 28 minutes in Sunday's 129-102 win over the Bulls. With sixth man Norman Powell sitting Sunday for the first game of what's expected to be an extended absence due to a fractured finger, Davis stepped in to fill the scoring void on the Raptors' second unit. The rookie's exceptional outing should help his case for sticking around in a 20-plus-minute role as the Raptors' first guard off the bench, but he'll be hard pressed to match this level of efficiency from the field and three-point range on a regular basis. That said, Davis has shown the ability to fill out the stat sheet nicely when given meaningful minutes, so he might be worthy of a speculative pickup in 14-team leagues or deeper.
Davis finished with 15 points (5-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 23 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's 130-114 win over the Hawks. The rookie's role had grown smaller in recent weeks with the Raptors gaining several key contributors back from injury, but he picked up some extra minutes Tuesday with both Marc Gasol (hamstring) and OG Anunoby (shoulder) exiting early. Gasol in particular looks at risk of missing additional games, which could aid Davis' chances of reaching the 20-minute mark with more regularity.
