Davis continues to nosedive in fantasy (Dec 16 12:00 ET )
Ed Davis missed all five of his shots in Monday's blowout loss to the Pacers, finishing with zero points, four rebounds, two steals and one block in 23 minutes.
Ed Davis' streak of quiet starts continued on Sunday with six points, four rebounds, three assists and one block in just 21 minutes of action vs. the Timberwolves.
The Scoop:It was a close game and Davis wasn't in any foul trouble, but coach Byron Scott opted to play him just 21 minutes for the second game in a row. Carlos Boozer notched 22 points and 13 rebounds off the bench and seems inspired to regain his starting job, but Davis has enough upside to take a wait-and-see approach in typical fantasy leagues.
Ed Davis continued to sputter on Friday against the Spurs, scoring just two points on 1-of-3 shooting with six rebounds, four assists and one steal in 21 minutes.
The Scoop:Carlos Boozer went for 14 and 13 with two blocks and Davis is clearly the better player for the Lakers, but Byron Scott isn't ready to bench the veteran and unleash the younger player just yet. Davis has moved into the starting lineup and hasn't been too bad this week, but he's not a must-own player even if he's a guy to watch very closely.
Sometime between Ed Davis' phantom basket and his short jumper that rattled around the rim and out, Kobe Bryant realized this wasn't going to be his milestone night. The Los Angeles Lakers star came into Friday's NBA game needing 31 points to pass Hall of Famer Michael Jordan for third place on the NBA's all-time scoring list as he seeks to finally escape Jordan's shadow. Nick Young bailed the Lakers out Friday by nailing a desperation three pointer with seven seconds left to lift Los Angeles to victory.
Ed Davis scored 11 points in Tuesday's win over the Kings, and added six boards and two assists in 26 minutes.
The Scoop:He did shoot a perfect 5-of-5 from the field, but he failed to block a shot or record a steal which was a little disappointing. However, Davis is now the starting power forward for the Lakers and he should be better than this on most nights. If you are in need of a big who can contribute steady blocks and rebounds, Davis may be your man.
