Orlando Magic: Glen Davis Undergoes Foot Surgery

Orlando Magic could be without big man Glen Davis during training camp, as he suffered a setback in his rehab and was forced to have foot surgery on Monday, Orlando Sentinel reports.

Orlando Magic power forward Glen Davis underwent surgery Monday afternoon to replace a screw in his left foot that he originally fractured in late January and had surgically repaired in early February.

Although team officials said Davis will resume basketball-related activities later this summer, it’s unclear whether Davis will be ready to participate in the Magic’s training camp when it begins Oct. 1.

“He’s just been having some discomfort,” Davis’ agent, John Hamilton, told the Orlando Sentinel. “It made sense for us to get it checked, and that’s what we did.”

Davis, who underwent foot surgery to repair the fracture in his foot on Feb. 1, enjoyed the best individual season of his career in an increased role with the Magic last season. He averaged 15.1 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 31.3 minutes per game — all career-highs.

The Magic probably won’t miss Davis that much. Shortly after “Big Baby” went down, Orlando swung a deal for Tobias Harris, who proved to be a great steal and finished the season in fantastic fashion.
