The Orlando Magic received bad news Wednesday night following their 113-97 loss to the New York Knicks: starting power forward Glen Davis, who left the game at the 7:40 mark of the first quarter, suffered a broken foot, coach Jacque Vaughn said, according to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. The Fox Sports Florida Twitter account which covers the team added that Davis would return to Orlando rather than remain with the team for the remaining three games on its roadtrip.

The Magic will likely release more information on Davis' condition in the days ahead.

Davis' 16.1 points and 7.5 rebounds rank second on the Magic in 2012/13. He previously missed 11 games with a sprained left shoulder, during which time Orlando lost 10 straight. The Magic's defeat against New York on Monday was their seventh straight loss.

It's not immediately clear on whom Vaughn will call to replace Davis in the lineup. Andrew Nicholson got a majority of the starts in Davis' first absence, but he played just seven minutes against New York, the fewest of any Magic player who saw action.
