DAVIS WILL HAVE SURGERY THIS WEEK AND WILL BE AWAY ONE YEAR
Thu, 10 May 2012 03:02 AM EDT

An MRI on Monday made public that New York Knicks point guard Baron Davis has suffered a partial tear of the patella tendon in his right knee and complete tears of the right anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments that would keep him out quite some time according to the team.

Davis is anticipated to undergo surgery later this week. Recovery time is about 12 months.

Davis suffered the injury in the 3rd quarter of Game 4 of the Knicks series against the Miami Heat. The 33-year-old was dribbling down court and seemed to go down without contact after his knee buckled.

Davis was on the ground for a short while being inclined to by team trainers. Ultimately, he was taken off the court on a stretcher. He pointed at the crowd as he was wheeled off the floor, to a loud ovation from the Madison Square Garden crowd. But he was shown by TV cameras grimacing going through the players’ tunnel.

Players on the floor from both teams were plainly shaken by the injury.

“I almost shed a tear on the court to be truthful with you,” Knicks power forward Amare Stoudemire announced after Sunday’s game.

“Baron’s such a great guy off the court, as a colleague. He’s a remarkable locker room guy and to see that, I dropped down to one knee and said a prayer while he was on the ground. It was sad.”

“I didn’t want to watch,” Heat forward Chris Bosh expounded. “I kind of heard the affection, and then when they were playing it back on the Jumbotron like eighty times, everybody could hear the reaction of the crowd.

“You in no way want to see guys go down like that. I only hope that everything’s OK for him and he recovers well.”

Knicks interim head coach Mike Woodson asserted he talked to Davis after Sunday’s win.

“The one thing he did say was, ‘Man, hey, I tried to give you all I could.” And I have a great deal of respect for players that work for me and work for the franchise and try to do the best they can to help us win ballgames,” Woodson announced.

Davis had started at point guard for the Knicks since Jeremy Lin went down with a knee injury on March 24.

He signed with N.Y Knicks for the veteran’s minimum earlier this season after being released through the amnesty clause by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Davis worked his way back from a herniated disk injury, making his Knicks debut about 7 weeks into the season. He wasn’t 100 percent healthy though.

Davis dealt with hamstring and knee ailments throughout the regular season. In Game 1 of the Knicks’ series against the Heat, his back injury flared up.

The 12-year vet averaged 6 points, 4.7 assists and 2.7 turnovers in 20 minutes in the regular season. In the playoffs, Davis scored 9.7 points and dished 3.7 assists in 24 minutes entering play Sunday. He turned the ball over an average of 3 times per game.
