Ed Davis Injured In Pick-Up Game

Doug Smith reports: “It’s all fun and games until someone hurts a knee. Raptors rookie forward Ed Davis sustained a “meniscal” injury to his right knee during a pickup game Wednesday night and the treatment options are still being determined. Davis was playing informally in Mississauga on Wednesday — a gathering started by the team’s younger players using social media outlets — when he landed the wrong way after a rebound and hurt himself. … The team did not disclose details of any treatment for Davis, which could run from rest to arthroscopic surgery. Toronto begins training camp at the Air Canada Centre on Sept. 28. While there was no indication the injury had anything to do with people not involved with professional basketball, the game was taking place away from the team’s practice facility — and training and medical staff. Generally, in the final two weeks before training camp, players use the team’s facilities to work out and scrimmage with teammates. Davis, a 6-foot-10, 215-pound 21-year-old, was taken 13th overall by the Raptors in June’s NBA draft.”

    Isn’t there a clause in most contracts that denies you the right to play pickup games?

    Just watching the pattern and all of these young guys participating in summerleague tournaments…it just seemed like something like this would happen sooner or later. And when your as skinny as this kid there is no reason for you not to be spending your time in the weight room of your squads practice facility and not at some gym back in your hood

  • Yesse

    This is just one of the worst things that can happen to you on your Nba career. Hope he can get well soon.

  • wottywo

    Ed, next time sit your ass down, and thank about your career before you take it to the streets.
    I bet you feel stupid now. Why risk getting hurt when your fixing to make that NBA money?

  • MikeC.

    It’s little consolation for the cRaptors and their fans, but at least he got hurt playing ball. It could have been something flat-out stupid, like riding a moped or snowboarding.
