The never-ending saga of Anthony Davis‘ health has taken an unexpected turn: a few days after it was announced that Davis would be shut down for the season to address a torn labrum in his left shoulder plus a knee injury, it’s been determined that he doesn’t need shoulder surgery after all.

Considering Davis told reporters that he’s been playing with a torn labrum for three years, this seems a little odd. But if it’s only a partial tear, it might not be absolutely necessary. Hopefully, it won’t be a recurring thing throughout his career.
