A week or two following the event of Glen Davis's injury I wrote an article questioning why he wasn't with the team. Although I still haven't found an answer for that I am pleased to see him working out on a daily basis. I had heard about this before, but I hadn't seen it on TV or in person until the Golden State game I went to last Wednesday. A smile formed on my face when I saw Big Baby doing sprints down the endline of the parquet floor. Since then even more good news has come out and Big Baby is eying a return to the team very soon.
The Boston Globe reported today that Glen is scheduled to have his cast removed from his hand on December 2nd. After that he will continue to strengthen his right hand and continue to get into game shape. Hopefully sooner, rather than later, he will be back out on the floor helping the team.
Before the Celtics recent struggles I didn't think the absence of Big Baby had a big impact on the team's success. Now that I have seen our team during a period of struggles I take that back, Big Baby is huge for our team. He knows the system a lot better then Shelden Williams currently does, and he proved last year he can play in many different situation. This is what Davis had to say about returning to the team, courtesy of the Globe:
“It’s tough to watch the games, knowing that you can help, knowing that you could be the deciding factor of the game, It’s tough man, so I am excited to get back and get this cast off and start helping my teammates out.’’
Davis knows that he is going to have to prove he is worthy of playing time, he stressed that he will continue to work out until he is back into game shape and ready to help the team. As a fan of Big Baby's for a long time I hope this will be a learning lesson and that he will soon grow up. There is no doubt about it, Mr. Davis can ball, I hope to see more moments from Big Baby like the one we saw in game six against Orlando last year.
