Davis (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Trail Blazers.

EDGE Analysis

Davis will be missing a second consecutive game with what's being listed as a sore left knee, but it's likely just the Pelicans resting their veteran down the stretch with no real reason to keep the oft-injured star on the court in a meaningless outing. With Wednesday marking the season finale, Davis ends his 2016-17 campaign playing in a career-high 75 games, while averaging 28.0 points, 11.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 2.2 blocks and 1.3 steals across 36.1 minutes. With DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) also out, Dante Cunningham and Alexis Ajinca should start at power forward and center, respectively, on Wednesday.

Davis (knee) will not play Tuesday against the Lakers.

EDGE Analysis

Davis will be held out for the second straight game as the Pelicans continue to list him on the injury report with a sore left knee. With DeMarcus Cousins also sitting Tuesday, it seems rather likely that the Pelicans are simply making a last-ditch effort to improve their lottery position, as they lose their pick to the Kings if it falls outside of the top three. In the absence of Davis and Cousins, expect Dante Cunningham, Chieck Diallo, Alexis Ajinca and Donatas Montiejunas to pick up most of the frontcourt minutes.

Davis will not play Saturday against the Warriors due to a sore left knee.

EDGE Analysis

Whether Davis is actually dealing with an injury is up for debate, but the Pelicans will hold the All-Star out of action on the second night of a back-to-back. With DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) set to miss a second straight game, New Orleans will be shorthanded up front, meaning Donatas Motiejunas, Alexis Ajinca and Dante Cunningham should all see big minutes. Consider both Davis and Cousins questionable for Tuesday's matchup with the Lakers.

Davis could be rested on the second night of their upcoming back-to-back sets, Justin Verrier of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Pelicans have four games left on the schedule, with two back-to-backs on tap, so with the team already eliminated from playoff contention, there's no real reason to push the workload of the injury prone Davis. Coach Alvin Gentry mentioned that if Davis saw 30 minutes or more in the first game of either set, he'd probably get the night off in the second contest, so it seems like there's more than a realistic chance of that happening. That said, Davis should be a full participant in Friday's game against the Nuggets, so activate him as usual there before monitoring his status following the contest.

Davis scored 41 points (18-31, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and added five rebounds, four blocks and one steal in 41 minutes during Tuesday's 134-131 loss to the Nuggets.

EDGE Analysis

Davis is such a dominant fantasy force that some managers might be disappointed by Tuesday's performance, since he brought down less than half his average number of rebounds. He's scored at least 30 points in six of his last seven games - the one exception came against the Kings, when he deferred some to former King DeMarcus Cousins.

Davis collected 30 points (8-19 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 13-14 FT), 11 rebounds, three steals, two assists and one block across 40 minutes during Sunday's 117-110 loss to the Bulls.

EDGE Analysis

Though Davis suffered a right ankle sprain during the first half of Sunday's game, which caused him to be sidelined briefly, he returned during the second half to cap off an impressive performance. He was stellar getting to the free-throw line and knocking down his freebies, making up for his subpar 1-for-4 game from beyond the arc. Davis has been on a tear over the past 11 games, averaging 28.0 points, 13.9 rebounds, 1.9 blocks and 1.5 steals across 36.5 minutes per game. He continues to be a premier threat in all fantasy formats.

Davis returned to Sunday's game against the Bulls after sustaining a right ankle sprain during the first half.

EDGE Analysis

Davis was shaken up after rolling his right ankle during the first half of Sunday's game but felt good enough to return to the game during the third quarter. If he happens to miss any time, Dante Cunningham would likely be the main beneficiary.

Davis recorded 19 points (9-19 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 12 rebounds, five blocked shots, three assists and two steals over 34 minutes in Friday's 117-89 win over the Kings.

EDGE Analysis

While Davis recorded his 47th double-double of the season on Friday, this was a reunion game for DeMarcus Cousins and the Kings, so understandably Boogie was set on being dominant. Davis had some highlights of his own with five blocked shots, a number he hasn't eclipsed since February 8 against the Jazz where he swatted six balls. With Davis and Cousins at full steam, they have a viable path to the playoffs as they face the Bulls and then two straight against the Nuggets, who are just ahead of them in the West. Davis should be started in all formats as there should be some inspired play in this final push.

Davis posted 30 points (11-21 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 8-8 FT) with 13 rebounds, two assists, two steals and a blocked shot over 36 minutes in Wednesday's 121-118 win against the Mavericks.

EDGE Analysis

Davis didn't seem to skip a beat despite the return of DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) after a two-game absence. He has grabbed 11 or more rebounds over each of the past seven outings. Davis is also averaging 32.5 points, 15.3 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 1.5 blocked shots over his past four starts.

Davis finished with 36 points (12-23 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 11-14 FT) with 17 rebounds, three assists, three steals and three blocked shots across 41 minutes in Monday's 108-100 loss against the Jazz.

EDGE Analysis

Davis had another giant performance with DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) missing in action again. He is averaging 33.4 points, 16.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.7 blocked shots and 1.7 steals per game over the past three outings. The Pelicans are fighting to keep their slim playoff hopes alive, and as long as they're not eliminated Davis should continue to log big minutes.
