Anthony Davis will return to basketball activities by early August and be “100 percent” by training camp in September according to Pelicans general manager Dell Demps.
We were uncomfortable with blanket predictions from big box sites that had Davis as the prohibitive No. 1 pick in fantasy leagues last year, because there wasn’t a ton of separation between Davis and Stephen Curry and that was a really basic call to make. Owners that went heavy on Davis probably lost those leagues, and those that went with Curry had one helluva ride. Perhaps no player is primed for a market overcorrection as much as Davis, and we look forward to projecting his stats knowing there’s probably some profit to be had.
