They already targeted their center... Solomon Alabi... he killed it in their min-camp in June and he really started to come around. I talked with some people at the Raptors camp, and they said hands down Solomon was the best player there. Dwyane Casey really likes him and he will get a real chance. Not saying they won't look to bring in bigs, but they think they have a possible starter in Solo and with Bargs and Ed Davis able to play the 5 spot, they may not have the gap you think they do.

Ed Davis on a lockout possibly lasting a year: “Man, I don’t know. A whole year? That’s a long time. That’s a long time. If it’s guaranteed for a year, I’ll talk to my agent about something. Hopefully it’s just a couple months or something.” National Post

Former Duke University basketball players Brian Davis and Christian Laettner were going to oversee a half-billion dollar real estate venture around FedExForum and turn the Grizzlies into NBA champions. That was their bravado in the fall of 2006. Today, Davis and Laettner can hardly pay their bills. And to think that there is a segment of local fans who fret over multibillionaire Michael Heisley's owning the Grizzlies. Things could have definitely been worse. Last month, a federal judge in Maryland ordered Davis and Laettner to pay NFL linebacker Shawne Merriman nearly $3.8 million and give him ownership stakes in their projects in downtown Durham, N.C., Baltimore and Atlanta.

(Ed) Davis averaged 10 points and five rebounds a game in his two games before his quick call-up. ``One, I never want to go back down there again,'' Davis said. ``It's a struggle down there. It's rough. I had a five-, six-hour bus ride to Fort Wayne. It's really a struggle. You get in the mindset that you just really want to work hard and not go back down there.'' canada.com

Baby steps. At times it’s frustrating but when you’ve been watching your teammates playing for almost seven weeks while you itch to get back in game action, baby steps are all Ed Davis has. Wednesday night in Philadelphia he took another step exchanging the bulky brace for a lighter one that puts him another step closer to making his NBA debut. Davis gave the new brace the thumbs up. Monday in Miami he went through his first full contact practice. It all points to a return to the court as early as next week. Toronto Sun

Solomon Alabi and Ed Davis are with the team today but not for long, I’m told. I think you’ll see Alabi assigned to Erie of the D League the first of the week so he can go down there and get some practice and game work with the Bayhawks. And I’m told Davis may get some time down in the minors in the next little while (maybe a week or so away) to get some game work in as he comes back from knee surgery. I guess both moves make sense, although I do think each of the young bigs would benefit almost as much from practicing against NBA guys than playing in a guard-oriented minor league, but as long as they’re not gone long, there’s no big problem.

Ed Davis can see the light at the end of the tunnel. But it’s still another 10 days before the Raptors No. 13 overall selection in last year’s draft can engage in any contact drills and at least another two weeks (and that is Davis’ best-case scenario, not the team’s) after that before he could get into a game. For this 21-year-old, the past five weeks have been one huge exercise in frustration. “It’s been very hard,” Davis said. “Very hard.” Toronto Sun

Raptors rookie forward Ed Davis (FSY) is recovering after undergoing arthroscopic surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his right knee. The team said Monday in a statement that Davis is expected to sidelined up to six weeks. He hurt his knee in a pickup game last Wednesday. Toronto selected the 6-foot-10 Davis with the 13th overall pick in this year's draft after he played two seasons at North Carolina. USA Today

According to sources, Davis was taking part in an unsupervised “run” with fans and strangers at a Mississauga gym when he landed awkwardly going after a rebound and suffered what the team is calling a torn meniscus in his right knee. The sources gave no indication anything untoward occurred in the pick-up game with non-professionals, but some were concerned because Davis had already been through a scrimmage and workout earlier that day with teammates at the Air Canada Centre.

The Toronto Raptors announced Monday that rookie forward Ed Davis underwent arthroscopic surgery this morning to repair a meniscus tear to his right knee. He is expected to be participating in basketball-related activities within six weeks. Davis sustained the injury last Wednesday playing basketball. NBA.com

Kid goes out to run with the masses at some gym in Mississauga, suffers a knee injury playing and now no one’s entirely sure what the course of treatment is going to be or how long he’ll have to sit before starting his first NBA training camp. And there are those in the organization who are worried the rookie big man might have to have a scope to find out just what’s going on inside that knee and while that’s not 100 per cent certain right now, I don’t think anyone should be entirely surprised if it happens.
