Glen Davis injury: Magic forward expected to be cleared before end of September, according to report

Glen Davis - Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

The veteran big man has been out since January with a broken bone in his left foot.

Orlando Magic big man Glen Davis could soon return to the floor, reports Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports. The former LSU Tiger "is expected to be cleared to resume basketball activities by month's end," according to Spears, citing "a source."

In a January loss to the New York Knicks, Davis broke the fifth metatarsal in his left foot when he got tangled up with New York swingman Iman Shumpert as the pair jogged up the floor. He had corrective surgery the following day and another procedure in July to fix a screw that had come loose.

In August, Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel reported that the Magic will be "overly cautious" as Davis works toward returning to basketball action. The veteran scribe termed Orlando signing of free-agent big man Jason Maxiell as "insurance" in case Davis' recovery takes longer than normal.

Also in August, Steve Kyler of HOOPSWORLD reported that Davis might not be in Orlando's future plans.

Davis averaged 15.1 points and 7.2 rebounds, both career highs, in his second season with the Magic. He has two seasons remaining on his contract.
