Jeremy Lin, Ryan Kelly will start for Lakers Tuesday


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(3/24/2015) The Lakers will juggle their starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Thunder, giving guard Jeremy Lin his first start since a December demotion and moving forward Ryan Kelly into the first five, per the Daily News.

Lin has played well of late, including a season-high 29 point performance against the 76ers on Sunday. He started 20 games this season, but was benched due to a lack of consistency.

"It's a matter of him going out and doing it, and the last couple weeks, he’s had some really good games," Lakers coach Byron Scott said.

Kelly will receive his first start since March 6. It had been speculated that Ed Davis might move into the starting lineup, but Scott said things will be re-evaluated after the team's five-game road swing.


Lakers forwards Ryan Kelly, Tarik Black could start Tuesday in OKC


(3/23/2015) The L.A. Times reports that forwards Ryan Kelly and Tarik Black are expected to start for the Lakers Tuesday at Oklahoma City.

Both Kelly (20 of 38) and Tarik (25 of 49) have started a little more than half of the games they've played for the Lakers this season.

Also reported Monday by the L.A. Daily News, guard Jeremy Lin and forward Ed Davis may also get the start Tuesday as well.

The Lakers are 11-point underdogs against the Thunder.

Lakers' Lin, Davis moving into starting lineup?


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(3/23/2015) The combo of guard Jeremy Lin and forward Ed Davis has been so effective coming off the bench that the Lakers may decide to move both players into the starting lineup, according to the Daily News

Lin scored a season-high 29 points and Davis garnered 11 rebounds and four blocks in Sunday's win over the 76ers, and have played well enough together that Lakers coach Byron Scott may have to juggle his rotation. 

"I'll consider it," Scott said. "It's something I'm thinking about. But I'll let you guys know soon."


Lakers' Ed Davis doubles up vs. Heat Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Lakers power forward Ed Davis scored 14 points on 7 of 10 shooting while racking up 12 rebounds in his team's 100-94 loss to the Heat Wednesday.

Davis was one of seven Lakers to score in double digits, including all four bench players who saw action, but his 14 shared the team lead in the close loss. The double-double was just the fifth of the season for Davis, who also chipped in three steals and one block in 28 minutes off the bench.

The Lakers bring a three-game losing streak into Friday's matchup with the Grizzlies.


Lakers PF Ed Davis doubles up vs. Nets Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2015) Lakers power forward Ed Davis scored 16 points on 8 of 10 shooting while hauling in 14 rebounds in his team's 114-105 loss to the Nets in Los Angeles Friday.

Davis played 28 minutes off the bench on a night where five Lakers reserves played at least 24 minutes but no starter played more than 24 minutes. As a result, he turned his fourth double-double of the season and his first since Jan. 9. Davis also kicked in three assists, two steals and one block in 28 minutes.

The Lakers have lost seven straight games and 16 of their last 17 heading into Sunday's matchup with the Celtics.


Lakers' Boozer, Davis to keep coming off the bench


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2015) Though the Lakers were unable to defeat the Bucks on Wednesday, coach Byron Scott was pleased with how veterans Carlos Boozer and Ed Davis played coming off the bench.

Boozer posted 28 points and Davis brought down 20 rebounds in a 113-105 loss. With the way they played, a case can be made for both Boozer and Davis to re-enter the starting lineup. However, coach Byron Scott appears to be keeping them in their current roles.

“I like that combination and they play together,” Scott said, via the Los Angeles Daily News. “There’s an argument for everything. I don’t pay a lot of attention to that. I like the way they play together. Both of them off the bench provide us with something special.”

The Lakers are near the bottom of the NBA at 13-36 this season and seem committed to developing the young players on the roster. However, the Lakers are receiving some solid support from these two veterans, who are providing some energy in relief roles.

“We play well together," Boozer said. "The more Ed and I play together, the more we play off each other,” Boozer said. He plays above the rim. Hes’ a very underrated passer. He’s a very good player.”


Ed Davis on future with Lakers: 'I'm hoping for a long-term deal'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2015) Lakers forward Ed Davis told the Los Angeles Daily News on Thursday that he will opt out of his player option worth around $1 million in hopes of a long-term deal with the Lakers. He has until June 25 to formally announce his opt out.

"I'm hoping for a long-term deal," Davis said. "I'd love to return here. I know this will turn around eventually."

The 25-year-old is shooting a career-best 58.4 percent from the floor this season. He's posted averages of 8.0 points and 7.3 rebounds through his first 49 games with the Lakers.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Nine of Davis' 20 rebounds came on the offensive end. While he was a beast on the boards, Davis had trouble scoring from the field. Davis scored seven points on 2 of 8 shooting. He also added three assists and one block.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2015) Lakers power forward Ed Davis scored a season-high 20 points on 7 of 9 shooting in his team's 109-106 loss to the Grizzlies Friday.

Davis had the opportunity to tie the game after getting fouled in the final seconds, but he was only able to make one of his two free throws, leaving the Lakers with a loss after a pair of incosequential free throws on the other end. The power forward saw 28 minutes of action Friday, picking up eight rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal. Davis will square off with the Pacers Sunday.

Lakers' Ed Davis worth a flier


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Lakers forward Ed Davis has a real chance to earn a large role, although he still has some obstacles in his way early in the season.

Davis has long been a productive player on a per-minute basis, but has always struggled to find consistent minutes. His career high in minutes per game came back in 2010-11 when he averaged 24.6 minutes per game for the Raptors. He could exceed that total this season, and the injury Julius Randle suffered on opening night might open up that path.

Davis played just 22 minutes in the opener, but that was mostly a result of foul trouble as he struggled to deal with Dwight Howard. On most nights, Davis won't be quite so overmatched, so we will start to get an idea of what his role is moving forward. He should be the primary backup center, but can also fill in at power forward in a pinch if the team needs more defense than Carlos Boozer provides.

Davis has averaged 11.9 points and 10.2 rebounds per-36 minutes in his career, so he probably isn't a nightly double-double threat even with a larger role. However, he can provide help in defensive categories as well as with percentages, and is worth taking a flier on waivers just in case he takes advantage of this opportunity.  


Ed Davis signs two-year deal with Lakers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Davis averaged 5.7 points and 4.1 rebounds in 15.2 minutes over 63 games for the Grizzlies last season.

Ed Davis just misses double-double vs. Wolves


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) Grizzlies forward Ed Davis enjoyed a solid performance off the bench on Monday, falling three boards shy of a double-double in a 109-92 victory over the Timberwolves.

Davis scored 12 points on 6 of 8 from the floor. He also chipped in with seven rebounds and one block while logging 18 minutes of game action. He is averaging 9.0 points and 9.0 rebounds over his last two appearances.

Grizzlies asking little from reserve bigs


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/8/2014)  Grizzlies reserve big men Ed Davis and Kosta Koufos continue to make little impact, as they played just 19 combined minutes Saturday, in a 79-76 win over the Hawks.

Davis played a bigger role than Koufos in the win, though he ended up with just two points in 14 minutes of action. He was more impactful on the boards, however, grabbing seven rebounds and blocking one shot on defense.

Koufos played just five minutes, and did little to stand out despite attempting six quick shots. He connected on just two of them for four points, while adding three rebounds.

Neither player has managed to do much recently, with Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph both healthy. Koufos is averaging just 3.8 points and 2.5 rebounds over the last five games, while Davis is putting up 2.5 points and 4.0 rebounds in that same span. 


Grizzlies reserve big men take a backseat


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2014) With the return of center Marc Gasol from a knee injury, the Grizzlies big man rotation shrank immediately Tuesday, in a 90-87 win over the Thunder. Reserve big men Ed Davis, Jon Leuer and Kosta Koufos all saw their diminished roles in Gasol's return.

Davis saw the most playing time of the trio at 22 minutes, still a tad lower than his total for the month of January entering the game. He finished with six points and six rebounds on 3 of 6 shooting.

Leuer and Koufos barely saw the floor upon Gasol's return. Though Gasol was limited to just 24 minutes, Leuer and Koufos played just three minutes each, both finishing scoreless, with Leuer adding just a single rebound between them.

The Grizzlies are going to lean heavily on their All-Star big man duo of Gasol and Zach Randolph, leaving little room in the rotation for their backups moving forward. 


Ed Davis grabs career-high 17 rebounds in double-double Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2014) Grizzlies forward Ed Davis turned in his third double-double in five January games Friday, scoring 10 points on 5 of 9 shooting and grabbing a career-high 17 rebounds in his team's 104-99 win over the Suns.

Davis played a season-high 30 minutes while matching a season high with three blocks and adding one assist in the win. He has averaged 7.7 points and 4.7 rebounds over 29 games played.
