All the guys I mentioned have injury histories.
Have I gone completely mad or am I just buying into the pre season hype machine too much?
IMO, he's as big of an injury risk as the guys on your list. Davis missed quite a bit of games last season due to several mishaps too. He'll only be 20 for most of the upcoming season, so plenty of risk still exists.
As for the preseason, temper expectations. Gordon and Evans haven't played and NBA defenses haven't kicked it into regular season gear yet. I'm as high as anyone you'll find on Davis, but I wouldn't take him ahead of the guys on your list. Now if it's several picks later, I'd gladly agree.
