Anthony Davis News

Anthony Davis    F/C  Pelicans

 

 

The Pelicans are close to hiring assistant Chris Finch to their coaching staff. It's an interesting move for the Pelicans to add the former Nuggets assistant. Finch is somewhat responsible for Nikola Jokic becoming such an amazing offensive weapon and he's also part of the reason the Nuggets offense thrived in the second half. To be fair to Jokic, he's been an incredible passer since his first Summer League, so it's not like Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins will transform overnight. Regardless, this is positive news for both the Pelicans bigs.

James Harden, LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, Kawhi Leonard and Anthony Davis were named to the All-NBA first team. Not many surprises here with four of the five basically being locks while Rudy Gobert had an outside chance to take the last spot over Davis. Despite going to the locker room more than any player, Davis still managed to play 75 games, averaging 28.0 points, 11.8 boards, 2.1 assists, 2.2 blocks and 1.3 steals.

Anthony Davis (knee) and DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) will not play against the Blazers on Wednesday. That's a wrap for Anthony Davis' big season. Despite going to the locker room more than anyone else, Davis sits at the top for total value in nine-category fantasy leagues with his 75 games played. Next year, it'll be interesting to see how AD fits in with Cousins after AD posted a 27.4 usage rate next to him compared to the 32.7 he had before the break. For tonight, it should be a heavy dose of Alexis Ajinca and Cheick Diallo up front. Dante Cunningham should play a lot, as well.

Anthony Davis (left knee soreness) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Lakers. Even though it's more than likely that the Pelicans are resting him, they are ruling him out pretty early which suggests that he may not play in the regular-season finale on Wednesday vs. the Blazers as well. Dante Cunningham, Alexis Ajinca, Donatas Motiejunas and Cheick Diallo will all see more run, but fantasy owners can probably find a much better option on the wire.

Anthony Davis (left knee soreness), DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) and E'Twaun Moore (ankle) have been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Warriors. Coach Alvin Gentry hinted on Friday that Davis might get a night off on Saturday. Speaking with reporters before Friday's game vs. Denver, Gentry said that he would rest Davis if The Brow hit the 30-minute mark. Davis ended up playing only 24 minutes, but with the Pelicans already eliminated from the playoffs, New Orleans decided they will sit their superstar anyway. Dante Cunningham, Alexis Ajinca, Donatas Motiejunas and Cheick Diallo will all see a significant bump in minutes.

Anthony Davis played 24 minutes during a 122-106 loss to the Nuggets on Friday, scoring 25 points with six rebounds, one assist and one turnover. If he had hit the 30 minute mark today, coach Alvin Gentry said he would "probably" rest Davis on Saturday. Even though that didn't happen, there's still a good chance that could happen in a road game. Davis' fantasy owners will want to check back for an update Saturday afternoon. The Pelicans will not shootaround on Saturday.
