Glen Davis, one of the Celtics key components off the bench, could miss a significant time due to a right thumb injury. The injury occurred away from the basketball Sunday night between Davis and a former Louisiana State teammate, according to the Boston Herald.
The article also states that Davis was defending himself. The power forward underwent x-rays on Sunday and will undergo more tests to grasp the full effect of the injury. There is no word yet if the injury will require surgery.
The injury comes just two days before the Celtics open the season in Cleveland. Davis played in all seven preseason games, averaging seven points and four boards.
Timing isn’t the only thing the Celtics’ brass won’t be happy about; in early August, the Celtics signed Davis to a two-year deal worth more than $6 million.
