Recommendation: "He responded to treatment, but (head trainer) Jon Ishop didn't like the way he looked before the game," said head coach Monty Williams. "We're just going to make sure he's right. We have a lot of days before our next game, so we don't want to chance him hurting himself." This doesn't sound like something that will keep Davis out for too long, but it's certainly worth monitoring for fantasy purposes. The No. 1 pick in the draft was off to a great start in the preseason before hurting his groin. He had a total of 42 points and 26 rebounds through the first three games, although only two blocked shots is mildly disappointing.
Update: Davis "tweaked his groin" during Thursday's game and is not playing in Friday night's preseason game against the Rockets, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
