An MRI Monday revealed that Baron Davis has a partially torn patella tendon and a completely torn ACL and MCL. The recovery time for such an injury is 12 months.
Davis, 33, has been battling a herniated disk in his back, and with such a major knee injury, picturing an NBA comeback is a bit difficult. His NBA career was already on life support as he bounced from team to team, so with a substantial knee injury that Davis won't return from until he's 34, B-Diddy could be done.
Without Davis, the Knicks will have to move on with only one healthy point guard on the roster. Jeremy Lin isn't totally healthy and Toney Douglas has fallen well out of favor with the Knicks.
This is the second major knee injury this postseason. Rookie guard Iman Shumpert tore his ACL in Game 1. The Knicks trail 3-1.
