Orlando Magic big man Glen Davis was enjoying the best statistical season of his career this season, but sadly that will prematurely come to an end. In the first quarter of Wednesday's game between the Magic and the New York Knicks, Davis was running up the court and stepped on the foot of Iman Shumpert.
In the video above, it doesn't look like much. But it was enough to fracture "Big Baby's" left foot, and he could miss the remainder of the season. From OrlandoMagic.com:
Still trying to fully recover from a severely sprained left shoulder injury suffered on December 19, Davis fractured his left foot early in Wednesday's game and could be lost for the remainder of the season.
Davis will be re-examined in Orlando to find out how severe the fracture is and if he will need surgery.
He was having a season. He was averaging career highs in minutes (31.3), field-goal attempts (14.1), points (15.1), rebounds (7.2), assists (2.1) and blocks (0.6). He also had career highs in usage rate (25.8 percent) and PER (15.3).
While the Magic have struggled all season, they've especially struggled without Davis. When he was recovering from a sprained ankle in December and January, the team went 1-10 without him in the lineup, losing their first 10 games of that stretch.
