Just For A Change, Another Injury: Glen Davis Has Patella Tendon Strain

 

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.

    Just when you think you're turning the corner, you run into another f'in injury wall! Guess I'm glad we have new bodies to throw out there while we await recoveries.

    It could be a blessing in disguise. More minutes for Troy Murphy and Jeff Green to get comfortable with the system before the playoffs. As long as Davis is healthy come playoff time, he knows the system so he can ease right back in.

      Amen.

        thats a good point

    Come on guys, injuries come with this occupation. Let's stop acting like its the end of the world. It would only be an issue if we didn't have anyone else who could step up to the plate, but we do. Yes, its unfortunate, but its not the end of the world.

    On a lighter note, some humor from KG's interview tonight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KQCgEH8Co8

    whens shaq due back?

    • hdavenport

      There is no "due" anymore, seemingly. Shaq is never "due" until the playoffs.

  • LStrike

    Furthermore, when is Jermaine due back?

    • talesofJP

      Danny said 3-4 weeks

  • TedL

    On the bright side, it might explain why his shooting has gone south.

  • Ross in Maine

    Baby has Jumpers knee. Had it myself, it's painful, but not a serious injury. If he HAS been playing through it, then he'll need 2- 3 weeks of no use to recover, otherwise a week off will work. G/L baby, I know you're tough, but heal that thing up now and give some of those new guys a chance to play!

    • Chris O

      I've had it too, and as of my diagnosis yesterday, I give the same itmeline 3-4 weeks for true healing. Coming back after 2 weeks the tendon will be better but not 100%….if that is what they are looking for.

  • kricky

    Let's hope Murphy can shake off that rust in a hurry. Dude was awful last night. But he does deserve the benefit of the doubt considering all the PT he's missed.

    On a lighter side it look like he will make up for BBD's absence in the shots blocked department. :)

    • Chris O

      Haha yea, instead of BBD getting swatted it will b Troy Murphy gettin swatted lol

    Now the tide begins to shift as Danny Ainge goes from being looked at like an idiot to a genius. The guy knows what he is doing as if the last 3.5 years wasn't evidence enough. I loved this trade before it happened.
