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.

I'd go with

PG: Nelson
SG: Afflalo
SF: McRoberts
PF: Ayon
C: Vuc

Baby's loss will be felt most on the defensive end as he is difficult to post up against do his bulk. Ayon is the best option to mitigate that.

Plus, with both him and McRoberts starting the ball movement will be better with the starters (as it is with 2nd unit). McRoberts also adds another outside shooter if played at the 3, he might be limited in doing so if played at PF.

I'm not comfortable with Andrew starting yet, mainly for defensive reasons, but also him and Redick have a tremendous chemistry with the 2nd unit that would be lost. The play a really nice two-man game at times.

Nah, we just think you're crazy in general. ;)

In other news. Anyone checking out Brandon Bass? He's having a pretty craptastic year so far. 8.4ppg, 5.4 rpg. Give Otis some credit I suppose for making the exchange to get BBD.

hedo is going to help the team with his ball handling and shooting, don't write his obituary yet

I think if you put McGee back then, he would get those blocks just as easily as Russell did. Russell's athleticism was well ahead of the players of his time, and that's about it.

Yes, you are right about that. Bass had, on paper, a higher ceiling, but BBD is a much more productive player.
Otis did well on that one.

BBD Injury update.
Video of #Magic PF Glen Davis shooting baskets for the 1st time since his injury Dec. 19: http://ht.ly/gwaDa

Evan Dunlap ‏@BQRMagic
Glen Davis took the practice floor Thursday and shot. "I felt good," he said. http://sbn.to/UiS9xU


Brian K. Schmitz ‏@MagicInsider
Glen Davis has range back in shoulder but needs strength to return to absorb contact in paint


Orlando Magic Radio ‏@Magic_Radio
Glen said to media he's upset he got hurt. As a captain, he feels he let the team down. Next step is to test his shoulder in contact drills.


Josh Robbins ‏@JoshuaBRobbins
Glen Davis is taking some left-handed hook shots.



Orlando Magic Radio ‏@Magic_Radio
Injured forward Glen @iambigbaby11 Davis put up jumpers and dribbled the ball today at team practice with relative ease and comfort. #WeWill


Josh Robbins ‏@JoshuaBRobbins
Glen Davis taking some shots informally after #Magic practice today. Remember, he's right-handed and hurt his left shoulder

I hope BBD isn't masking the pain or discomfort to fool doctors and rush back to the court. I can see an emotionally vested team Captain trying to do that due his desire to help the team. But, I don't want to see him end up out for a longer time or get hurt worse.

awesome news... I can't wait to have Davis back in the front-court with Vuc.

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.
