Glen Davis To Miss A Couple Of Games

Celtics' Davis could be out week with tendinitis

      WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) – Boston Celtics forward Glen Davis has
patellar tendinitis in his left knee and could be out a week.
      The team said an MRI on Thursday showed no major structural
damage after Davis was hurt the knee going up for a dunk with 49
seconds left in Wednesday's victory over the Suns.
      Davis predicted he will be out a week, and Celtics coach Doc
Rivers echoed that assessment after practice Thursday, saying his
power forward would miss “a couple of games.”
      Davis says the knee has been sore since he injured it in Game 7
of the NBA finals last year in Los Angeles.
      Davis often has started at center in place of Shaquille O'Neal
and Jermaine O'Neal, and entered last night having played all 59
games this season, tied for the team lead with Paul Pierce and Ray
Allen.
