Davis finished with 25 points (10-16 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 10 rebounds, four blocks and two assists in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 115-108 victory over the Bucks. Davis returned after a one-game absence, scoring 25 points on just 16 shots. He didn't appear to have a minutes restriction, playing in 36 minutes of the ballgame. He continues to put up first-round numbers on a consistent basis, and barring any setbacks to his adductor injury, he should be good to go when the Pelicans travel to Denver to face the Nuggets on Friday.

Anthony Davis scored 25 points during a 115-108 win over the Bucks on Wednesday with 10 rebounds, two assists and four blocks in 36 minutes. He and DeMarcus Cousins put up a pair of 20-10 lines for the first time this month. Coach Alvin Gentry doesn't really like to limit AD when he's active with this game and a 40-minute effort against the 76ers on Sunday, but AD did not play on Monday. For now, Davis looks like he's healthy as he keeps his fantasy owners on pins and needles most nights.

Davis (groin) will get the start in Wednesday's matchup with the Bucks, Will Guillory of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. After missing the four of the past six games with a groin injury, Davis will get the start against Milwaukee. Davis has averaged 35.0 minutes per game this season, and his return will likely cause Dante Cunnigham and Darius Miller's minutes to decrease.

Anthony Davis (left adductor) is "expected to play" vs. the Bucks on Wednesday. Davis said after shootaround that he "should be able to go," and that was confirmed by the Pelicans' official twitter feed. We'll update his status once lineups are announced, but it should be safe to activate him in all season-long leagues.

Anthony Davis (left adductor) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with the Bucks. Davis said he was feeling good after shootaround, and that he "should be able to go" against Milwaukee barring a setback, but ultimately this decision will be made by Alvin Gentry and the Pelicans' medical staff. AD will need to go through his pregame routine before an official decision is made, but if he is able to get back out there, Darius Miller will return to the bench, and DeMarcus Cousins won't be quite as active on offense.

Davis (groin) said he "feels good and should be able to go" for Wednesday's game against the Bucks, but will ultimately be a game-time decision. Davis appears to be more probable than questionable heading into Wednesday's game, though an official call won't be made until close to tipoff. Assuming he returns, Dante Cunningham (knee) will likely see a slight downtick in minutes if he plays. Davis has missed four of the past six games while nursing the groin injury, but has averaged 23.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.5 blocks in the two games he did play.

Davis (groin) is questionable for Wednesday's tilt against the Bucks. Davis has missed four of the past six games while nursing left adductor soreness, averaging 23.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.5 blocks in the two games he did play. More information on his status should be available after he tests out the injury during Wednesday's morning shootaround. If he's held out, Dante Cunningham (knee) will likely draw the start and be the main beneficiary of Davis' absence. If Cunningham, who is also questionable, is unavailable, Cheick Diallo may see more run.

Anthony Davis (left adductor), Dante Cunningham (knee) and Jameer Nelson (ankle) are being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bucks. Davis has missed four of the past six games with this groin issue, so they likely won't be bringing him back until he's cleared 100 percent. We'll have a better idea on his status following shootaround, but if he's out again and Cunningham joins him on the sidelines, Darius Miller would be forced into heavy minutes while DeMarcus Cousins and Jrue Holiday would dominate the offense. If Nelson is out, that'll be good news for Rajon Rondo.

Davis (groin) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Rockets. Davis aggravated a left adductor injury during Sunday's matchup with the 76ers and after testing it out during pregame warmups Monday, the team decided it was in his best interest to sit out and avoid any additional strain. Davis' next opportunity to play will be Wednesday against the Bucks, though tentatively consider him questionable for that contest. With Davis out, Dante Cunningham will draw the start at power forward and could be a potential punt-play option for Monday's DFS slate.
