Big Baby likely out for the year after foot surgery
Per the Orlando Magic front office, Glen “Big Baby” Davis will undergo surgery on Friday to repair his left foot which he fractured during Wednesday night’s loss to the Knicks. The procedure will insert a screw to stabilize the fracture and help the healing process. Baby is expected to be out eight-to 12 weeks, depending on the progress made during his rehab.
This injury is obviously a blow to any flexibility the team was hoping to have at the trade deadline and makes Baby virtually untradeable at this point as his season is likely over. Even if Davis makes a miraculous comeback and moves towards the eight week timeframe, that would leave just a week or two remaining on the season.
Davis has played up and down this year after being named a team co-captain, missing ten games earlier in the year with a shoulder injury. He was averaging a career high 15.1 points per game and 7.2 rebounds per game.
