Anthony Davis being traded to Lakers

The New Orleans Pelicans have agreed to a deal to trade Anthony Davis to the Lakers for Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, and three first-round picks – including the No. 4 overall in 2019 Draft.

Fantasy Impact

This is a clear sign that the Lakers are in a win-now mode while they still have LeBron James. Pairing Davis with LeBron doesn't hurt either player's value for fantasy. It remains to be seen what the surrounding cast will look like in the 2019-20 season, but both players should continue to be near the top of draft boards in fantasy. Per agent Rich Paul, Davis plans to go into free agency in 2020, but a potential championship run could certainly play a role in keeping the All-Star in Los Angeles.

Anthony Davis traded to Los Angeles Lakers

Former New Orleans Pelicans all-star center/forward Anthony Davis has been dealt to the Los Angeles Lakers. The Pelicans will receive Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart, and three first-round picks. The number four overall pick in the 2019 NBA draft is included in the deal.

Fantasy Impact

The Lakers get the player they coveted in Davis. Davis will undoubtedly be an upgrade over Lebron James’ previous number two options. The Lakers now have another superstar to help in their quest of an NBA title.

Anthony Davis (back) will not play in regular season finale

Anthony Davis has been ruled out for the regular season finale on Tuesday against the Warriors, effectively ending his season.

Fantasy Impact

Davis was a major disappointment this season due to all the trade rumors and injuries along the way. Those owners, like myself, who drafted him at #1 had a hard time this season. Davis owners next season require an offseason trade in order to avoid this nightmare again next season.

Anthony Davis (back) will not play on Sunday

Anthony Davis has been ruled out for Sunday's game despite being listed as probable with a back injury. With Davis out, Jahlil Okafor, Cheick Diallo and Christian Wood will pick up more minutes.

Fantasy Impact

With Davis out again, Julius Randle is an elite option in fantasy while Wood presents the most appeal in terms of daily lineups over the likes of Okafor and Diallo. Davis could easily be shut down so stay tuned.

Anthony Davis (back) ruled out for Thursday

Anthony Davis has been ruled out for Thursday's game versus the Kings due to back spasms. With Davis out, Jahlil Okafor and Cheick Diallo will pick up more minutes.

Fantasy Impact

With Davis out, Julius Randle and Elfrid Payton will be leaned on for more on the offensive end while Okafor and Diallo become at least daily worthy against the Kings.
