I was way ahead of my time. I was like Bruno Caboclo. 2 years away from being 2 years away.

It's not weird because he can actually play right now and it won't make the injury worse, but the finger is going to be very painful during the initial few days. The injury is technically a fracture,

If brow sits I’ll retire from fantasy basketball until the nba institutes a rule for this style of sh!t...   I spend my hard earned bucks to play in a competitive league only to be stabbed i

Anthony Davis will see a hand specialist and there are fears that he suffered a solar plate avulsion fracture in his left index finger, according to his agent, Rich Paul.

While that sounds absolutely horrible, if confirmed, it means that Davis would be out anywhere from two to four weeks, theoretically putting him back in action for the fantasy playoffs. It's also possible that he doesn't have a fracture, but at this point, owners should probably plan on Davis missing more time with the injury. Julius Randle should be owned everywhere and Jahlil Okafor, who went off for 20 points, 10 boards and two blocks on Monday, will also be a hot pickup. However, Okafor has proven to be anything but reliable up to this point in his caree

It sounds worse than it is.  For people in regular leagues (no playoffs, etc.), obviously the extra time out would suck, but it wouldn't be the end of the world.  Still applies to even leagues with playoffs as he would be back for them.


At the end of the day, obviously I'm hoping he doesn't have a fracture.  I'll just have to wait and see rather than freak out.  That does no good.

The guy in my league who owns Davis is just outside the playoffs looking in and is aggressively shopping him around now as he fears he won’t make them without him. 


I feel like if youre almost a lock for the playoffs like myself, people should be trying to buy low on him but its just so scary man

What’s the chances he returns this seasonal you guys reckon? Have a feeling in 3-4 days he will seek a specialist, then it will be he requires surgery and he will be out for the season. 

Just have this funny feeling that’s what will happen? 

Fukn knew it!

He should tape his injured finger to the healthy finger beside it and tough it out!!!

But he won't be able to bend it.

2-4 weeks doesn’t that bad. I’m more worried about the Pelicans possibly falling behind the playoff race after that timeline.  Assuming worst case AD takes max 4 weeks to recover... do the Pels shut him down or does Rich Paul then tell them AD sits longer until he gets traded?
