‘Big Baby’ reportedly injured in altercation

Forward Glen “Big Baby” Davis (hand injury) missed practice Monday afternoon and his status has not been determined for the Celtics’ regular-season opening visit to Cleveland Tuesday.

“We sent him for X rays,” coach Doc Rivers said of Davis. “He was complaining about it before (practice).”

The Celtics will also be missing Tony Allen (ankle surgery), Brian Scalabrine (ankle sprain), and Bill Walker (knee surgery). Ray Allen, who sustained a cut over his eye during practice Saturday, trained at full speed and is expected to be in the starting lineup.

Updated: According to a report by the Herald’s Steve Bulpett, Davis was injured defending himself in an altercation with a former teammate who was visiting from Louisiana and could be sidelined for an extended period of time.
