Glen Davis to miss next two games

Doc Rivers has announced that Celtics forward Glen “Big Baby” Davis will miss the next two games due to a lingering left knee injury that Davis said has been bothering him the whole season.’s A. Sherrod Blakely has the full story:

You can add Glen Davis to the list of Boston Celtics players getting some “strategic rest” right now.

Coach Doc Rivers said the left knee injury that has sidelined Davis for the last two games, will keep him out of action Wednesday against Golden State as well as Friday’s game at Philadelphia.

While Davis admits the knee isn’t completely healthy, he says he wouldn’t be on the bench if this were the playoffs.

“Oh, no way. Playoffs? I’d have to play with that,” Davis said. “I’ve been playing with this [injury] the whole season. A couple weeks ain’t going to hurt a little bit. As long as I don’t get to the point where I can’t walk.”

The recent acquisition of Jeff Green will definitely soften the blow of losing Davis, but “Big Baby” is definitely a valuable piece for the Celtics, and Boston knows it needs him in the playoffs. Jermaine O’Neal, Shaquille O’Neal, Delonte West, and Von Wafer are also currently injured, so the Celtics’ depth will be tested in the next two games.

If you believe there is a difference between being dunked on and being dunked around, this definitely falls in the latter category.

Still, it’s an impressive move by Toronto’s Anthony Bennett to make the move and dunk around Lakers’ big man Robert Upshaw during the Raptors’ 105-97 preseason win over the Lakers Thursday night.

Bennett only had four points, but Kyle Lowry had another impressive preseason outing with 25. He has looked sharp. Julius Randle had 17 for the Lakers on 7-of-10 shooting.

The Cavs are shorthanded in the backcourt right now, with Kyrie Irving still out and Iman Shumpert sidelined for up to three months. Yahoo’s Marc Spears reports that they’re bringing in former Temple guard Dionte Christmas, who played for the Suns in 2013-14:

In 31 games for the Suns two seasons ago, Christmas averaged 2.3 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.4 minutes per game. He probably won’t get very many minutes if he makes the Cavs’ final roster, but there’s a chance they’ll keep him around on a non-guaranteed deal until Irving and Shumpert are healthy, just to have another body in the backcourt.
