The Utah Jazz traded F/C Ed Davis and two 2023 second-round picks to the New York Knicks.
The Knicks recently waived Taj Gibson and Bobby Portis and landed another veteran in Davis. He was forced to miss the playoffs due to a knee injury, but all signs point to him being ready to pass a physical and suit up for the Knicks in the coming month. Davis is a decent shot blocker and offensive rebounder who should be a viable replacement in the Knicks' frontcourt in the wake of Gibson and Portis getting waived. Despite his change of scenery, he is not a target for fantasy managers this season.
Per sources, Utah Jazz F Ed Davis (knee) will miss the first-round playoff series versus the Denver Nuggets and will be re-evaluated in a few weeks.
Davis left Thursday’s contest versus San Antonio with an injury to his left knee and after further evaluation, was diagnosed with a sprained MCL. His absence for the first-round series against the Nuggets leaves a vacancy in the Jazz front-court off the bench, and Tony Bradley will likely get more minutes with Davis being out. Mike Conley will also miss the first-round due to the birth of his child.
Ed Davis came off the bench on Friday night and finished with a monster line in only 20 minutes as he notched 14 points along with 15 rebounds in what was a dominating performance against the Lakers' backup big men. Davis also added a block while shooting 7-for-11 from the field.
Davis isn't really a fantasy option right now just due to the fact that he's coming off the bench and is only averaging 18 minutes a game over his last 10.
Ed Davis came off the bench and played 16 minutes. He made an impact with his seven points, 10 rebounds and one assist.
Davis has been a one category contributor in fantasy leagues this season. However, he has been consistent, averaging 8.6 rebounds for the season. He's worth a look for teams needing a rebounding boost.
Ed Davis benefited from the triple overtime win on Wednesday night. He played 21 minutes off the bench, finishing with six points, eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and three blocks.
Davis has been a reliable source of rebounds all season. His three blocks were a boon, but don't expect that on a nightly basis. For the season, he averages 5.9 points and 8.6 rebounds.
