Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis Has a Left Shoulder Sprain

by December 20, 2012

There’s good and bad news here for Glen Davis and the Orlando Magic. The big fella is out with a left shoulder sprain, which will cause all sorts of problems for the squad. But, there’s no structural damage. Per the team website: “In the midst of a career year both as a go-to scorer and a first-time captain for the Orlando Magic, Glen Davis will have his season put on hold because of a shoulder injury. Davis, who is averaging career highs in minutes (33), points (16), rebounds (7.9) and assists (1.8), badly sprained his left shoulder on Wednesday night when he was fouled by hard by Washington’s Emeka Okafor. The injury will not require surgery, but could keep Davis out of action for a couple of weeks. A MRI conducted on Thursday showed no structural damage in Davis’ shoulder. The injury occurred with 47.8 seconds remaining in the Magic’s 90-83 defeat of the Washington Wizards. At the time of the injury, Davis sprained his left shoulder and ultimately had it popped back into place by team doctors. Davis stayed down on the floor for several minutes, biting his jersey, grimacing and writhing in pain. ‘After further evaluation by our medical staff, Glen Davis has been diagnosed with a left shoulder sprain,’ Magic General Manager Rob Hennigan said in a statement on Thursday. ‘The MRI showed no significant structural damage. He will be treated non-operatively. Treatment will include rest and subsequent strengthening of the muscles around his shoulder. His return will depend on progress made during his rehabilitation.'”
