PHILADELPHIA — Glen Davis made the trip for tonight’s game against the 76ers, and tested out his strained left patella tendon during the Celtic’s shootaround at the Wells Fargo Center.
Davis has missed the past three games after tweaking his knee at the end of the Celtics’ win over the Suns March 2. He said he’s felt pain in the knee going back to last season, playing through for the team’s first 59 games.
Davis is one of five Celtics out with injuries, but Rivers expects him to be the first to return.
“I might practice tomorrow,” Davis said. “I might. It depends on how this feels.”
The team’s lack of depth in the front court was exploited in their loss the Clippers on Wednesday. The shootaround was Davis’ first basketball activity since the injury. That’s not counting playing NBA 2K11.
“I’m scoring buckets on everybody,” Davis said. “I play with Miami. I just want to get ‘em a win.”
