Davis, in whispers that may soon become shouts, is believed by many in the game to already be the best player in the league. He certainly is already the best big, possessing dominant skill sets at both ends of the floor -- leading the league in PER, total blocked shots and blocks per game, while currently fourth in total Win Shares. He's lethal in transition, learning at an accelerated, SkyNet-like pace in the halfcourt -- and if he can step out past the 3-point line? Game over, man. NBA.com

With only six games remaining in the regular season, Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday's possible return still remains in question because of his stress reaction injury in his lower right leg. And although coach Monty Williams hasn't ruled out hope for Holiday's possible return, it is starting to appear doubtful. If the Pelicans do decide to pull the plug on Holiday's return, it will be made in collaboration from Mickey Loomis, the Pelicans executive vice president, General Manager Dell Demps and Williams. ''Mickey obviously will make the last call on that, but I am sure that's on the table,'' Williams said. New Orleans Times-Picayune

Last season, Holiday was limited to playing only 34 games after he suffered fracture i that required surgery to implant a steel rod in right tibia. ''I know we don't have as many games left, but my hope is that he can play this year and help us,'' Williams said. ''Even if it's in a limited role. I hate to say day to day. But it does have that kind of feel, especially when you have limited games to go. I still don't know. I hope it's tomorrow. ''His (point guard) position, that's a tough position to come back and play effectively after you've been out almost 40 games.'' New Orleans Times-Picayune

Instead, during a Monday visit to "The Dan Patrick Show," the New Orleans Pelicans big man cast his hypothetical MVP ballot for Houston Rockets shooting guard James Harden. "You know, it's tough," Davis said. "There's a lot of guys playing out of their minds. James Harden, Russ[ell Westbrook], Steph[en Curry], you know, LeBron [James]. But ... [long pause] I mean, James Harden. It'd probably have to be James. He's out of his mind. He's definitely playing out of his mind. We talk about this with my team every day. Like, every day." Yahoo!

After missing 17 games with a knee injury, Pelicans forward Ryan Anderson is expected to make his return at some point on their upcoming crucial three-game road trip that begins Wednesday night against the Lakers at the Staples Center. Coach Monty Williams said Anderson has been working out a lot lately and said it looks he will be ready to play soon. ''I'm definitely going to be back on this road trip,'' Anderson said after Monday's practice. ''That's my full intention.'' New Orleans Times-Picayune
