Baron Davis Not Playing Before All-Star Break Following ‘Setback’

Baron Davis’ highly-anticipated debut in New York has hit yet another speed bump. (On the bright side, Knicks fans: All Jeremy Lin Everything!) Reports Newsday: “The Knicks are not planning to have Baron Davis before the All-Star break. Coach Mike DAntoni said Davis has had ‘a setback’ in his rehab from a herniated disc and remains out indefinitely. There had been hope Davis could make his Knicks debut by the end of January. But it continues to be pushed back and now DAntoni said he doesnt know when to expect him. ‘I think we had a little bit of a setback, DAntoni said. Its safe to say. I dont know how bad.’ … The Knicks’ last game before the All-Star break is Feb. 23.”

    despite what you may have heard, weight watchers is not really working for me at this time.

  • Jono

    Good news for Jeremy Lin and T-Doug!

  • http://freshnproper.com Q

    How? Jeremy Lin did good in one game against the Nets lol he’s not going to repeat.

  • Nella

    I didn’t realize eating at Five Guys for a week straight qualified as a setback

  • http://Www.slamonline.com TADOne

    I’m baffled as to why teams are still giving Baron a chance?! You can’t fix lazy.

  • http://nyill.wordpress.com/ O

    Damn! The Knicks just can’t catch a break.

  • http://idunkonthem.blogspot.com albie1kenobi

    at least jeremy lin can run point.

  • http://redoftoothandclaw.ca/ niQ

    Wow, so far he’s just been a waste of space. Why did I even bother stashing him in Fantasy Bball =.=

  • http://redoftoothandclaw.ca/ niQ

    On another note, I might be feeling too optimistic, but, don’t you guys think Jeremy Lin would have a better game against the likes of an injured Devin Harris and Earl Watson of Utah? I mean, his breakout game was against Deron freaking Williams! *shrugs, maybe it’s just me.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    niQ did you watch that game? Deron Williams did not look interested in defense at all. I’m sorry but this Jeremy Lin hype is already on overkill. The kid is only going to be a disappointment now. I hate what Knicks fans do to players.

  • http://redoftoothandclaw.ca/ niQ

    @nbk. Lol fine, I’ll wait a few more games. But still, can’t help but feel good for the kid!

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Hey I feel great for him, and really hope he is a success. But I just have issues with how quickly people place players on a pedestal that they really don’t deserve.

    Lol @ nbk. This really ruins the Knicks chances of winning the championship behind the miracles of B-Diddy at the point. Guess they’ll settle for CP3 and Dwill’s peer at the position.

    Click my name. Me talking to Knicks fans, in code, about Jeremy Lin.

  • bike

    I guess consuming 20 buckets of KFC chicken in one sitting and then being spotted passing gas in the whirlpool qualifies as a setback.

  • bull22

    i guess when baron davis said they would be unstoppable he actually meant
    “we will unstoppable next year in 2012-2013″.

  • Chukaz

    Dear Mike D’Antoni,
    Can you hear that? Tik Tok! That’s the sound of your time in New York running out.

  • ClydeSays

    Baron Davis: Highly Stoppable. By a scale or a training room or a diet program.

  • http://www.leaguelineup.com/welcome.asp?url=pawtucketymca Gametimeweezy

    nbk Jeremy Lin had 28 and 8 today what were you saying?

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Lol he played a great game against the Jazz. He also played a whopping 45 minutes. You know who else had a big game? Steve Novak. I am not going to over-react about that either.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Double J

    Give Lin some credit, dude is doing something special here. Let’s Go Harvard Grads!

  • http://www.leaguelineup.com/welcome.asp?url=pawtucketymca Gametimeweezy

    Lol Steve Novak who’s that? Doesn’t sound like he’s #Linning!

  • http://Slamonline.com Caboose

    I like Jeremy Lin, he’s a nice kid and a hard worker. But please Knicks fans, don’t honor him the same way you did Lamdry Fields last year. Lin is a good player, but he’s not a top tier point guard. He’s Jeff Teague without defense. On a side note, what’s up with Knicks fans and loving kids from the top flight schools? (Stanford, Harvard)

  • http://www.leaguelineup.com/welcome.asp?url=pawtucketymca Gametimeweezy

    Top tier point guard? I don’t even know how he’s starting but I’ll take it tho.. lol

  • http://nyill.wordpress.com/ O

    Lin is killing it just like I said he would once he would get starter minutes. He had ONLY 8 assists because of Tyson’s foul trouble. Lin’s “finisher” for most of the night was JAred Jefferies and son cost Lin at least 3 more assists. And by the looks of things, Antoni is seriously going to burn this kid out like he did Chris Duhon a few years back. Lin’s minutes are ridiculous right now. The turnovers he was committing at the end of the game seemed to be because of fatigue. Lin is that dude right now though…

  • Matt G

    OMG…What a waste of time this guy has been. I say withhold pay until he comes back and we’ll see how quick he gets healthy. Other players are playing with injuries, delaying surgery etc. and we got stuck with this lazy guy. First it was lack of confidence, then soreness, now this!
    Whats nexr? It all equals one thing, LAZINESS!

  • Justin G.

    Chukaz and others calling for D’Antoni to be fired…exactly what is it he’s supposed to do with this team? He has no point guard, his top two players have never been interested in playing defense yet he’s supposed to try and convert them even though they are me first players and will do what they want, has no point guard (even with Lin showing signs), a condensed season in which there is no time to get guys acclimated to each other or the systems, a shakeup in the lineups almost every year he’s been there…I mean seriously. Not Phil Jackson, Pop, Jerry Sloan, or any other all time great coach you want to throw out there could do anything with the mess in New York.

    baron who? kincks fans dont care bout no baron davis, not the smart ones. jeremy lin is doin it real big right now, he might slow down once the scouts start analyzing his game, but right now hes a better player and fit than bd. the knicks need major changes, melo and stat do not compliment each other, specially when theyre d is trash and the coach dont care bout defence in the first place, and theyre both ball stoppers and besides the fact blah blah baron davis aint savin nuthin lol

  • Justin G.

    Matt, besides the obvious reasons as to why you can’t withold his pay, the Knicks knew what they were risking when they signed him. They signed him knowing he was getting back surgery (or did he have the surgery first? Can’t remember) so I’m pretty sure this isn’t on Davis

  • http://redoftoothandclaw.ca/ niQ

    @Caboose, I’d say he’s more Tony Parker than Jeff Teague. And don’t sleep on his defense.

  • Ike

    He’s Tony Parker with a Jumpshot!!!! Linsanity had a career high 38 pts on Kobe Bryant! Imani Shumpert is great too.
