Already in a rebuilding year where they have lost seven straight and 17 of their last 19 games, what else could go wrong for the Orlando Magic?

How about losing Glen Davis for the season to a broken foot?

That happened Wednesday night against the Knicks.

Big Baby broke his left foot the team made official and that will be the end of his season. It happened apparently in the first five minutes of the first quarter when he stepped on the foot of Iman Shumpert. It was incidental.

This is going to be devastating to an Orlando team that doesn’t have any room for devistation. Davis missed 11 games earlier this season with a shoulder injury and at that time the Magic lost 10 in a row.

Davis is the team’s second leading scorer at 15.5 points a amd and its second leading rebounder at 7.5 a game (both career highs for him). With Dwight Howard struggling on another coast Davis had to step up and did so, playing 32 minutes a night and garnering a PER of 15.2, right at the league average but again a career high for Davis. He also brought energy on the defensive end.

If you’re looking for a bright spot this could mean more minutes for rookie Andrew Nicholson, who needs the run to develop his game but shows a lot of potential

    at least the good news for magic fans is more ping pong balls. ya’ll deserve a franchise player that isn’t a headcase like dwight. best of luck in the draft.

    While its sad to see Baby hurt, this could work in our favor. More minutes for Nicholson/O’Quinn, more ping pong balls. Sucks though, Baby may have a very limited game but he brings 100% energy and hard work every night.

    I realize our goal is ping pong balls but it’s still incredibly hard to watch these guys work their butts off to come up just short night after night!

    Hope you heal fast Glenn

    “…..when he stepped on the foot of Iman Shumpert”

    I’m surprised because it wasn’t Iman Shumpert that broke his foot…..
