Glen Davis Likely to be Suspended

A broken thumb might not be the only problem for Glen Davis. According to several reports, the Celtics power forward will likely be suspended by the team following an off-court altercation that resulted in his thumb injury.

Team owner Wyc Grousbeck told the Fox 25 Morning show that a suspension was “very likely.” The Boston Globe then confirmed the report. Grousbeck told the Globe, “I’ve had enough of ‘Big Baby,’ so I’m going to start calling him Glen. It certainly seems like there’s going to be a suspension here.”

Davis would have already sat out up to two months due to the thumb injury as GM Danny Ainge and Grousbeck would not confirm or deny the possibility of surgery.

If the suspension is handed down by the team, there isn’t much Davis can do. Standard langauge in most players’ contracts allows for the team to suspend the player for off the court fights: Big Baby injured his thumb last Sunday night in an altercation with a former college teammate.

Davis and the Celtics agreed to a two year contract in early August worth more than $6 million. Davis’s discipline had already been questioned in the language of the contract. The Celtics were adamant about the weight clauses that would allow Davis to earn $500,000. This incident doesn’t help his reputation.
