Baron Davis out indefinitely with bulging disk in back

Golden State Warriors v Cleveland Cavaliers

If Baron Davis is going to do any mentoring of Kyrie Irving, he will be doing it on the sidelines.

Davis will not suit up for a while due to a bulging disk in his back, tweets Sam Amico of Fox Sports. For those of you med students out there, it is between L2 and L3. For those of us without medical degrees that means his lower back hurts a lot.

There is no timetable for his return.

If your first thought was amnesty, the answer is the Cavaliers have to make that decision by Friday or wait an entire year.

This is not bad for the Cavs on the court, really. You need to give Kyrie Irving a baptism by fire if he is going to improve, and he is the starting point guard now and going forward. Ramon Sessions is a quality backup (maybe you can trade him if Davis is healthy).

Not sure how good a mentor Davis would be, but he will be doing that from street clothes for a while.

    Yea.. he’ll be near death until he gets traded and then it will be fastest healing since Jesus and the leaper.
