Big Baby Davis’ Thumb Injury Occurred in Fight with Ex-Teammate

Glen Davis’ season has taken a bad turn in an entirely regrettable incident. The third-year forward could be lost to the Celtics [team stats] for an extended period after injuring his right thumb in a private altercation with a friend, according to sources.

The Celts were saying officially yesterday that Big Baby had suffered an undetermined hand injury and had been sent for X-rays. But sources said there is some type of fracture in the thumb and that he will have to undergo further testing with specialists to determine whether there is greater damage that could necessitate surgery.

The injury occurred Sunday night during the incident between Davis and a former teammate, who had flown up from Louisiana, sources said. According to sources, Davis was defending himself at the time.
