Anthony Davis started on Tuesday, but hit just 1-of-9 shots for three points, six rebounds and three blocks in 24 minutes in a brutal 118-88 loss to the Magic.
Well, that's not a good look. Normally, when a star falters like this they simply had a 'bad' or 'off' night, but things are a little different with Davis and the Pelicans after his trade demands and the fact he's still there. Coach Alvin Gentry has already said that Davis will play on Thursday against the Thunder (the Pels will be fined $100K every time he gets a healthy scratch), but his words after the game weren't exactly encouraging. "We sucked," Davis said. "Seemed like nobody was interested in playing." So, he demanded a trade, didn't get it, and is now calling out teammates? Additionally, Gentry said after the game that "he's done" talking about AD. If you own Davis and he's stressing you out too much, wait for him to have a better night before trading him. His fantasy value's probably as low as it's ever been when he's healthy.

when you guys saying the 100k fine report was fake news, here is another report talking about it. This is horrible when Gentry said: he is done. Really hope Pelican can right the ship and show some integrity to the game. Crossing my finger and am ready to go down with the ship. Thanks AD for a wonderful dream of winning championship this season.
