More on Baby’s Potential Suspension



UPDATE: Chris Sheridan of ESPN.com is reporting now that Glen Davis is undergoing surgery on his thumb today in Boston. No word yet, on how this affects his timetable in returning from injury.

Things look to have gone from bad to worse in the last 24 hours for Glen Davis as Zach Lowe reported earlier that according to Wyc Grousbeck’s comments on Fox25 this morning, a Big Baby suspension is likely. Tony Massarotti of Boston.com has more on the situation:

While Davis could contest the suspension, standard language in player contracts allows for teams to take disciplinary action against a player for fighting. Davis broke his thumb in an altercation with a former college teammate, according to multiple reports, and could miss up to two months as a result of the injury.

Grousbeck indicated that surgery to repair the break in Davis’s thumb was a possibility.

A really unbelievable turn of events here. Wyc also took a shot about changing Baby’s nickname:

“I’ve had enough of ‘Big Baby,’ so I’m going to start calling him Glen,” Grousbeck told the Globe.

Ouch. Thats sounds like someone who is fed up with an individual and rightfully so. This is a PR nightmare for the Celtics to have to talk about this on the day of the opener, where the team’s top figures have interviews lined up all over the place to promote the start of the season. A fight and suspension of one of their key contributors is something they surely don’t want to be talking about.

Luckily for them, the C’s are playing back to back nights to open things up here, and help distract people from this eye opening story. Between this and the Rondo extension talks falling through, I think we have had more real Celtics news in the past 24 hours here than the entire past month.  

For more on how Baby’s absence will affect the team’s roster and playing time, be sure check out Zach Lowe’s analysis of the situation.

    After I started to put the loss of Powe behind me…this happens. Can we indian-give and go back some months ago and take the chance on Leon now? I mean we'd be in almost the same situation we're in.

    Anyway, I just think it's gotta be Williams to step up…toughness inside and boards. Sure, you miss the spreading of the floor and outside shot with Davis. But in all honesty, we're good with outside shooters on the second unit. Wallace/House/Scal got the perimeter offense and Daniels is a slasher. Shelden…grab boards, play some D, score down low, take some charges.

    Not as confident about tonite, but not shook on the season as a whole.

    I think we still easily win tonight. sure, it sux we won't be seeing Davis for a while, but he was option #8 or 9 on scoring anyways, and Sheldon is a better defender. We'll be just fine.

    I don't see Wyc's remark about Davis's nickname as some passive agressive act to show he's sick of Davis. I think it's more that he thinks Davis has to grow up, and not do something stupid like punch a friend two nights before season tip-off.
