Orlando Magic forward Glen Davis underwent surgery earlier this month to replace a screw in his left foot, the same foot that required a procedure during the season after he broke it at the end of January. Following the recent procedure, the Magic are not sure when they can expect Davis to be back and available, as there’s a possibility that the big man won’t be ready for the start of the regular season, according to Josh Robbins of The Orlando Sentinel.
When Davis underwent surgery to replace the screw in his foot, initial reports said that he could return to basketball-related activities later this summer, which would put him in line to be ready for camp. For this reason, it’s hard to say what the future holds for Davis, as it will depend on how he responds to treatment.
If Davis is unable to suit up for the start of the regular season, the Magic could turn to veteran forward Jason Maxiell to fill in. Orlando could buy out the contracts of two other forwards, Al Harrington and Hedo Turkoglu, according to Robbins.
