Glen Davis’s MRI Shows No Structural Damage

After banging knees with Cleveland Cavaliers forward Samardo Samuels Sunday night, Glen Davis was forced to leave the game after scoring six points and grabbing two rebounds in just seven minutes of play. He was replaced by second-year Kentucky product Daniel Orton. Orton scored 11 points, recorded five steals, grabbed four rebounds and blocked three shots while playing a career-high 29 minutes.

After the game, Davis said he hyperextended his right knee, while Magic officials called the injury a sprain.

On Monday, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reported Davis had an MRI and no structural damage was found.

An MRI today showed that Glen Davis suffered no structural damage when he hurt his right knee Sunday night, team spokesman Joel Glass said.

The Magic will host the Philadelphia 76ers Monday at 7:00 pm EST.
