HoopsHype Ed Davis rumors

September 21, 2010 Updates

According to sources, Davis was taking part in an unsupervised “run” with fans and strangers at a Mississauga gym when he landed awkwardly going after a rebound and suffered what the team is calling a torn meniscus in his right knee. The sources gave no indication anything untoward occurred in the pick-up game with non-professionals, but some were concerned because Davis had already been through a scrimmage and workout earlier that day with teammates at the Air Canada Centre.

Kid goes out to run with the masses at some gym in Mississauga, suffers a knee injury playing and now no one’s entirely sure what the course of treatment is going to be or how long he’ll have to sit before starting his first NBA training camp. And there are those in the organization who are worried the rookie big man might have to have a scope to find out just what’s going on inside that knee and while that’s not 100 per cent certain right now, I don’t think anyone should be entirely surprised if it happens.

Davis had already gone through a scrimmage in the practice gym before he struck out to the wilds of Mississauga and that pickup game and I wonder if that shouldn’t have been enough work for one day. Now I also know that injuries happen anywhere and at any time, he could just have easily tweaked his knee in the Air Canada Centre as some gym out here in the boonies and this is little more than a bad break for what seems to be a good kid.

Raptors rookie forward Ed Davis sustained a “meniscal” injury to his right knee during a pickup game Wednesday night and the treatment options are still being determined. Davis was playing informally in Mississauga on Wednesday — a gathering started by the team’s younger players using social media outlets — when he landed the wrong way after a rebound and hurt himself.
