Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigan said an MRI exam revealed that forward Glen Davis suffered “no significant structural damage” when Davis injured his left shoulder Wednesday night in a 90-83 win over the Washington Wizards.
“After further evaluation by our medical staff, Glen Davis has been diagnosed with a left shoulder sprain,” Hennigan said in a statement. “The MRI showed no significant structural damage. He will be treated non-operatively. Treatment will include rest and subsequent strengthening of the muscles around his shoulder. His return will depend on progress made during his rehabilitation.”
Hennigan and team officials wouldn’t specify how many games they expect Davis to miss, the severity of the sprain or whether Davis dislocated his shoulder. It’s possible Davis will require at least a month to rehabilitate his shoulder.
Davis is just happy with knowing his injury will not require surgury.
“I was ecstatic and jumping for joy knowing that I could come back soon as I feel better,” Davis said. ”I might have Superman powers and come back next week.”
