Report: Foot surgery could mean Orlando’s Davis to miss start of season

Glen Davis broke his foot back on Jan. 30 and was forced to miss the rest of the season.

Then a couple weeks ago Big Baby had a second surgery to replace a screw in his foot from the first surgery.

That’s a lot of foot surgeries for a guy whose job it is to run up and down a hard wood for 82 games. However, the first reports said he could return to basketball activities later this summer and be ready for camp.

Now, that may not be the case suggests the Orlando Sentinel.

But Davis underwent surgery earlier this month to replace a screw in his left foot, and team officials will not rush him as he continues his rehabilitation. There’s a possibility Davis won’t be ready for the start of the regular season.

That would likely mean more minutes for Jason Maxiell.

I’d say this could make the start of the season tougher for the Magic, but really every part of the season is going to be tough for the Magic.

    The Davis injury is why Orl signed Maxiel.

    It don’t matter. They got of bunch of decent PF’s that can get the job done while he’s out. They won’t even notice he’s gone. He might have even messed around and lost his spot in the rotation when he does come back.
