New York Knicks' Baron Davis' knee injury was gruesome and quite painful to watch. It even hurt more to see that a stretcher came out to get him off of the court. A herniated disk at the beginning of the season had Davis out for quite some time, and he was unsure if he would come back.
Eventually, Davis came back and was a major component of the Knicks making it into the Playoffs. The 33-year-old point guard is now testing his fate with torn medial collateral ligaments, a torn anterior cruciate ligament and a partial patella tendon tear. Take his age and the extent of this injury, and this could very well end the point guard's career.
He well head into the operating room later this week. Total recovery and rehabilitation time is estimated to be 12 months.
"The one thing he did say was, 'Man, hey, I tried to give you all I could.' And I have a great deal of respect for players that work for me and work for the organization and try to do the best they can to help us win ballgames," said Knicks' interim coach Mike Woodson.
Baron Davis' knee injury will have a major impact on the Knicks. They are now without an actual starting point guard. Now, Mike Bibby will assume the starting point guard position when the Knicks take on the Heat on Wednesday.
