i can't help but think that Davis' shot is going to be really off for another month or two, even after he's cleared to play.

i just hope he settles in to a defensive role, in that case, rather than forcing shots he's not physically comfortable enough to make.

Good to see Davis on the practice court. I can see him aggravating the shoulder on his first attempt at a return though. His play style is too physical and I don't think he'll be able to keep it toned down every minute he's on the court. He'll probably still dive after balls he can't possibly keep in play. He also relies heavily on sticking his shoulder into defenders in order to score in the paint. Will be interesting to see how that shoulder holds up.

The left shoulder especially to clear out space.

His return will get our defensive prowess back, but we still have problems to solve offensively. I don't care if we don't have a star, we still can have a better gameplan.
