News: Davis (back) has been ruled out for the season. Impact: After a visit with the Pelicans' medical staff, it was deemed that Davis' lingering back spasms will require 1-to-2 weeks of rest to approach typical health. With just a week remaining on the schedule, the decision is a prudent one, which will allow Greg Stiemsma and Jeff Withey to gather more run than normal. Meanwhile, Davis ends the season with a stranglehold on what is likely the first of many block titles (2.8 per game), with 36 double-doubles spread across 67 games this year.(RotoWire, )

News: Davis (back) is listed as questionable for Friday's contest in Oklahoma City, The Oklahoman reports. Impact: Davis' bout with back spasms is threatening to hold him out for a second game in a row, which would provide a temporary bump in the workloads of Greg Stiemsma and Jeff Withey. Although Davis' owners shouldn't panic yet, there remains the possibility that he takes a seat for the rest of the season.(RotoWire, )

Wed. Apr 9, 2014
News: Davis (back) will not play Wednesday against the Suns. Impact: The big man is currently dealing with back spasms and remains day-to-day as the season winds down. He's been limited over the past week but was healthy enough to put up 15 points, five boards and four blocks in 34 minute Sunday versus Portland. Al-Farouq Aminu figures to garner the start in his place Wednesday, and consider Davis a game-time call for Friday's matchup in Oklahoma City.(RotoWire, )

News: Coach Monty Williams said that Davis is listed as day-to-day and that he will be on the floor if he is capable of playing, the Pelicans' official site reports. Impact: Williams also said that he does not believe that just because his team is out of playoff contention that he should rest his key players. Davis' fantasy owners should keep an eye on his status before every game, but all signs point to him being in the Pelicans' lineup for the remainder of the season, barring another bout with the back spasms he has been dealing with.(RotoWire, )
Apr 6, 2014
News: Davis was a game-time decision Sunday after suffering from back spasms in the Pelicans' previous two games, but he didn't seem to be bothered by the spasms. He was able to play 34 minutes and put up 15 points, five rebounds, one assist, and four blocks. Impact: Davis and the Pelicans have three games this week. While it's always possible his back spasms could recur, we're putting Davis in all of our weekly lineups.(RotoWire, )

News: Davis is in the starting lineup for Sunday's tilt against the Trail Blazers, the Pelicans' official site reports. Impact: The news about whether or not Davis was starting was released right before tip-off. He's seen limited minutes the past two games and we'll need to keep an eye on how much he plays in Sunday's game.(RotoWire, )

News: Davis (back spasms) is a game-time decision Sunday, and Pelicans coach Monty Williams said Davis could have finished Friday's game, the Pelicans' official site reports. "It's not a structural issue; he's just dealing with spasms and soreness every day that he wakes up," Williams said. "He's a lot better than he was. He would've been OK the last game, (but) he took that tumble into the crowd that messed him up. He could've finished the game, but I took him out. I just felt like it was time. ... As long as he's structurally fine, we're OK with playing him if he wants to play." Impact: Davis has been dealing with back spasms for the last two games and was limited by a sprained ankle for the three games prior to that. It sounds as if Davis will play Sunday as the team says there is not structural damage with his back. This makes us more confident about rolling Davis out there in weekly leagues, but make sure to check the news after the game to see if and for how long Davis is able to play without incident.(RotoWire, )

News: Davis (back) was limited in Friday's game against the Jazz, posting just eight points, six rebounds, one assist, and two blocks in 23 minutes. Impact: Davis was dealing with back spasms in the first half but managed to return in the second half and play until the fourth quarter. The Pelicans are likely going to be cautious with him, meaning that even if he doesn't miss games, he may see fewer minutes than usual.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 4, 2014
News: Davis (back) is questionable to return for the second half of Friday's game, the Pelicans' official site reports. Impact: Davis played 16 minutes in the first half but was struggling through back spams and may not play after halftime. Even though he asked to play Friday, it appears his back spasms are not yet fully healed, and he could potentially miss more time with the issue.(RotoWire, )

News: Davis (back) will play Friday, FOX Sports reports. Impact: Davis left Wednesday's game with back spams but participated in Friday's shootaround and reportedly asked to play Friday against the Jazz.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 4, 2014
News: Davis (back) participated in shootaround but remains a game-time call for Friday's game versus the Jazz, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Impact: The All-Star departed Wednesday's game with back spasms after playing just 11 minutes. HIs participation in shootaround is certainly a positive sign, but it would not be a surprise if New Orleans, which has no chance at the playoffs, held out its star as a precaution. If Davis sits, expect Alexis Ajinca to see an uptick in minutes.(RotoWire, )

News: Davis (back) left Wednesday's game against the Nuggets in the second quarter because of back spasms and did not return. He finished with six points, three rebounds and an assist in 11 minutes. Impact: There has not been an update of Davis' status, but fantasy owners should consider him day-to-day and keep an eye on his status for Friday's matchup with the Jazz. Between the back spasms and the ankle injury that caused him to sit out a game last week, the Pelicans may be cautious with their star and hold him out.(RotoWire, )

Impact: Davis left after just 11 minutes, during which he posted six points (3-4 FG) in addition to three rebounds and an assist. With the Pelicans down by nearly 20 points at the half, it's unlikely they'll risk thrusting their star back into action in the second half.(RotoWire, )
