As frustrating as Wednesday’s loss to the New York Knicks was, the Orlando Magic have to be more frustrated with the fact that Glen Davis was forced to leave the game with a foot injury in the second quarter.
The seriousness of the injury is still unknown, but this is the last thing the Magic need to deal with considering the way things have gone this season. Orlando already knew there was a chance they would be experiencing a rebuilding season after shipping Dwight Howard off to the Los Angeles Lakers during the offseason, but 14 wins with All-Star Weekend right around the corner is nothing short of embarrassing for this kind of team.
For a team with few options when it comes to big-name players, Davis has been having the best season of his career so far in 2012-13 with the Magic as he’s averaging 15.5 points per game to go along with 7.5 rebounds. The big man has recorded some big games for Orlando as he can be difficult to defend at times and hopefully this foot injury isn’t anything to worry about so he can return to the court in no time.
Otherwise, the Magic could be facing some difficult times ahead when it comes to picking up wins. It’s safe to say playoffs are already out of the question for this team–so gaining experience and building chemistry will be important for this team over the second half of the regular season.
