Wow a shoulder sprain. I thought a dislocation for certain. That is good news.

Depending on the grade of the sprain in Davis' shoulder he could potentially return to #Magic in as little as 2-to-3 weeks. Good news indeed

As a person who has experienced a shoulder sprain I can attest that the initial injury hurts incredibly bad. It's probably worse than an ankle sprain, although I've never had a severe sprain there. As for a recovery I felt completely fine after a little over a week. I'm not a professional athlete who is taking constant strain on a consistent basis though so who really knows.

Magic Team Releases

“In the midst of a career year both as a go-to scorer and a first-time captain for the Orlando Magic, Glen Davis will have his season put on hold because of a shoulder injury. Davis, who is averaging career highs in minutes (33), points (16), rebounds (7.9) and assists (1.8), badly sprained his left shoulder on Wednesday night when he was fouled by hard by Washington’s Emeka Okafor. The injury will not require surgery, but could keep Davis out of action for a couple of weeks. A MRI conducted on Thursday showed no structural damage in Davis’ shoulder. The injury occurred with 47.8 seconds remaining in the Magic’s 90-83 defeat of the Washington Wizards. At the time of the injury, Davis sprained his left shoulder and ultimately had it popped back into place by team doctors. Davis stayed down on the floor for several minutes, biting his jersey, grimacing and writhing in pain. ‘After further evaluation by our medical staff, Glen Davis has been diagnosed with a left shoulder sprain,’ Magic General Manager Rob Hennigan said in a statement on Thursday. ‘The MRI showed no significant structural damage. He will be treated non-operatively. Treatment will include rest and subsequent strengthening of the muscles around his shoulder. His return will depend on progress made during his rehabilitation.’”

Although there is no definitive timetable it sounds like #Magic power forward Glen Davis will be out more than a month. Still good news.

So it was dislocated, but but without serious tears. I'm reminded of Candace Parker's injury in 2008 on route to her final Championship with Tennessee. I was watching the game.

A description:

"Parker dislocated her left shoulder in the first half against Texas A&M. Parker had just stolen the ball and was dribbling up the court when she curled to the side and stopped. A team trainer met her on the court and escorted her to the locker room with 3:50 remaining in the first half.

Parker returned to the bench a minute later and checked in at the first opportunity, but then clutched the shoulder again while trying to deflect a pass. Parker returned to the locker room with 15.6 seconds left, returned for the second half, and was able to play the final 10:39 with a sleeve on her shoulder."

She went on to win the championship and to play two seasons in the WNBA with the shoulder popping out from time to time. Finally she had a really bad dislocation and finally agreed to surgery in 2010, which appears to have repaired it.

I bring this up because Glen's injury seems to be similar. There's one big difference though. Candace is a string bean. Glen's huge muscles may be able to hold the shoulder in place without surgery.

Fortunately, a sprain is better than a dislocation which I think means his arm did not pop out of socket. I hope so because once an arm pops out of socket, then it is easier for that to happen again.

I had a very similar injury in university. Did it whilst I was surfing, and it took weeks for the pain to subside. I've never been patient enough to rehab it properly, but I've done enough appropriate weight training over the last decade that it should have strengthened the area, but it still feels like a threat to dislocate if put under the wrong pressure.

In terms of basketball, it killed my ability to get my left arm up quickly for blocks and steals, and my offense was limited to layups and short one handed jumpers. Mind you, I didn't have millions of dollars invested in my recovery, but it will be interesting to see how Davis comes back from this.

I kept an eye on him some games and he is pretty good. I am excited to see what he can do with extended minutes. He played decent as a starter in L.A. and has publicly stated he wants to be a starter somewhere (I think).

McRoberts is a more efficient offensive player and Nicholson is the outright better player so barring some unforeseen loss of leadership or energy Baby missing time could work in our favor. Bringing Hedo back as well could imply that there is indeed some hope for our 29th worst offense.

Here is the O-Sen story:
O-Sen LINK

“After further evaluation by our medical staff, Glen Davis has been diagnosed with a left shoulder sprain,” Hennigan said in a statement. “The MRI showed no significant structural damage. He will be treated non-operatively. Treatment will include rest and subsequent strengthening of the muscles around his shoulder. His return will depend on progress made during his rehabilitation.”


The story speculates that it is possible that this is from a separated shoulder. One month was tossed around as a recovery speculation.

this will be a real test for Nicholson, and whether or not he can handle NBA starters, night in and night out. offensively we may be able to get by, but our defense will take a big hit - especially if Hedo is rushed back.

He's been getting 33mpg on the number 6 defense in the NBA, so I won't go so far as to discount his defensive impact... then again I have a very hard time attributing that success over much to him. My thoughts are that Ayon and O'Quinn, not to mention Nicholson, are all better defensively, if not on technique then at on talent, and will hold up the defense without him, and that while McRoberts and Hedo will hurt our defense their offense will balance it out if not make up for it. I genuinely think that on talent taking out Baby and giving his minutes to Nicholson/Ayon/McRoberts/O'Quinn will make us better, the question is if we don't get screwed in the chemistry/intangibles department.
