Back in Jan. 30, Glen Davis had what up to that point had been a good season stopped when he injured his foot against the Knicks. That led a few days later to foot surgery that kept him out the rest of the rest of the season. It showed for Orlando on the court — Orlando was 13-21 with Davis and 7-41 when he sat.
Monday, he had foot surgery again to replace a screw in his 5th metatarsal, following up on that first surgery, the team announced.
He should return to basketball activities later this summer and be ready to go for training camp, the team announced.
The Orlando Sentinel had more details.
“He’s just been having some discomfort,” Davis’ agent, John Hamilton, told the Orlando Sentinel. “It made sense for us to get it checked, and that’s what we did.”
Doesn’t sound serious, but you always have to be careful with foot injuries and basketball players.
LeBron James sat out the Cavs’ preseason game against the Sixers on Thursday night, but Cleveland still held the lead for all but the final 5.4 seconds. Then, Sixers rookie Scottie Wilbekin did this:
Wilbekin, who played college ball at Florida, has a chance to earn legitimate minutes for the Sixers this season as they try to find young talent on the cheap. This is a good start.
Eight days ago, Derrick Rose had surgery to repair a fractured orbital bone suffered in training camp. The Bulls said he would be ready to resume basketball activities in two weeks, and in the meantime will rejoin practice soon. That part is still on schedule — head coach Fred Hoiberg says Rose will be with the team when they return to Chicago on Monday following a two-game preseason road trip, but unless the swelling in his eye dies down, it could be a little longer before he can start practicing again.
Via K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune:
It’s not ideal, but since there’s no structural damage to Rose’s face, once he’s cleared to resume practicing, it’s just a matter of getting back into game shape before he can start playing in games. The team is still optimistic he’ll be able to play opening night against the Cavaliers on October 27.
