Cougars in the NBA: Week ending January 26th

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

How have some of your favorite former BYU basketball players been faring in the NBA recently? Find out here.

It's time to check in again on some of our former Cougars currently playing in the NBA.  Let's take a closer look at a couple of the key players from BYU's 2010-2011 NCAA Tournament team, Jimmer Fredette and Brandon Davies.

Jimmer Fredette (Sacramento Kings): Jimmer and the Kings had a pretty rough week on the backside of a six-game road trip at the Thunder, Pelicans, and Rockets. Jimmer saw less than 10 minutes of game time in Oklahoma and didn’t sink a single shot. Fredette turned it around against the Pelicans and Rockets where he shot 66.7 percent from the field and shot 71.4 percent from behind the arc. The Kings returned home for an exciting game against the Pacers that went into overtime where the Pacers outlasted the Kings. Jimmer averaged 11 minutes, 6 points, 0.5 rebounds, 0.75 assists, and 1.25 turnovers per game this week. The Kings went 1-3 this week.

Brandon Davies (Philadelphia 76ers): Brandon Davies had been improving all season long and his minutes had been increasing. Davies was a decent asset for the struggling 76ers in his role off the bench. That was until he injured his finger against the Bulls in a 25-point loss. Davies had surgery on Wednesday and is expected to miss somewhere between four and six weeks recovering.  Before his injury Davies was averaging 2.5 points, 2 rebounds, and 11 minutes per game on the season.
