No Andrea Bargnani, no problem. Amir Johnson and Ed Davis are filling in admirably for the former No. 1 pick, who could be on his way out of Toronto, if the trade rumors are true. Bargnani has been out of action with an elbow injury since December 10. In 15 games as a starter, Davis is averaging 11.9 points (55.3 FG% and 64.7 FT%), 7.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists, .7 steals and .9 blocks in 30.5 minutes. On Sunday, Davis double-doubled with 20 points and 12 rebounds to go along with two assists and a steal. Yet, Davis is only owned in 30 percent of Yahoo leagues. His ownership numbers are incredibly off given that he's likely to keep his starting job even when Bargnani returns. Raptors coach Dwane Casey has expressed his love for the second-year big man out of North Carolina. Johnson is also woefully under-owned. The preps-to-pros star is owned in 32 percent of leagues despite averaging 11.3 points (61.3 FG% and 67.7 FT%), 7.3 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.4 in his last 10 games. Johnson has been even better as a starter: 17 points, 9.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, a steal and two blocks in 36.3 minutes. On Sunday, Johnson got his fourth started and played 44 minutes for 22 points (9-16 FG and 4-4 FT), 14 rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocks. Johnson is prone to some lapses in judgement. He's a major hacker, averaging 3.6 fouls per game. In a January 4 loss to the Sacramento Kings, he managed to foul out in just nine minutes. Both should be owned in all leagues going forward, especially with a four-game slate this week.
