Glen Davis will undergo an MRI Thursday to further evaluate what is being called a left patella tendon strain. Though Davis appeared to injure himself going up for a dunk in the fourth quarter of the Celtics’ 115-103 win over Phoenix, he has apparently been dealing with the problem for awhile.
“It was bothering me [for the whole year],” said Davis, who was walking gingerly after the game. “I’ve just been being tough. Just trying to be available to the team.”
While no injury is welcome, at least the Celtics are reinforced at the big positions with Danny Ainge’s moves the last week. Troy Murphy, Jeff Green, Nenad Krstic, and possibly Chris Johnson or a returning Shaquille O’Neal would likely split up Davis’ minutes, if he’s forced to miss any time.
We’ll update you on the results of the MRI tomorrow but you can safely stick this latest injury in the “two steps up, one hobbled step back” file. We trust you all have one by now.
