Orlando Magic big man Glen Davis shot around on the team's practice floor following its practice on Thursday, showing signs that he is recovering from a sprained left shoulder he suffered on December 19th.
"Today was my first day really shooting," Davis said, according to Dan Savage of OrlandoMagic.com. "I felt good." In his update, Savage embedded video of Davis taking part in some drills.
While Davis looked good in Thursday's drills--Savage described him as "agile"--the LSU product has plenty of work to do before he can return to game action. The first step is to see how his body "responds" to the extensive work he did, as Savage says. Davis will then have to work his way back through full-contact practices.
The Magic never put a timetable on Davis' return; in a statement, general manager Rob Hennigan said, "His return will depend on progress made during his rehabilitation."
Davis is Orlando's second-leading scorer and rebounder, averaging 16 points and 7.9 rebounds per game. The Magic are 0-7 without him in the lineup.
