Glen Davis to have MRI on left knee

Glen Davis [1] knew something was wrong before his feet touched the ground. For most of the season he has been battling pain in his left knee, and as he went up for a game-capping dunk against Phoenix Wednesday night, he sensed that he would not have a happy landing. Davis hobbled off the court with the help of the team’s medical staff.

The Celtics [2] are calling it a strained left patella tendon and Davis is scheduled to have an MRI Thursday. While he said he’s not concerned, he also acknowledged that his knees have been a problem this season.

“That’€™s why I don’€™t jump that high,” Davis said. “That’€™s why I missed that dunk [against Miami]. I can’€™t jump. My knees hurt.”

The Celtics won’t know the extent of Davis’ injury until the MRI, but the feeling in the locker room was that he would likely miss some time.

“It’€™s hard,” Kevin Garnett [3] said. “We’€™re back to this injury bug. Hopefully he’€™s not out for too long. Baby’€™s a trooper. He’€™s been playing hurt throughout this whole year and some last year.”
