Won't play Davis Cup after all

March 5, 2020
Nishikori, who won't play Indian Wells due to travel issues stemming from the coronavirus, will not play Davis Cup events over the weekend despite being officially listed on Team Japan's roster, Jose Morgado of the Lisbon Diario Record reports.
ANALYSIS
This news most notably means that Nishikori still isn't ready to come back from a lingering elbow injury that has kept him off the court since last year's US Open, even though it had seemed he would be making his return this weekend against Team Ecuador. His next opportunity to return will be later this month at the Miami Open, but given that he won't be traveling for Indian Wells, it's hard to imagine him traveling to Miami either.
