Injured forward Glen “Big Baby” Davis will speak with reporters at 7:30 p.m. at the TD Garden to address the circumstances regarding his broken right thumb. Davis participated in the team photo and was wearing a hard cast around the thumb. He is expected to miss six months.
According to an NBA source, Davis, his agent John Hamilton and the Celtics’ brass will meet to discuss a possible suspension because the injury was sustained in an off-court incident. If the two sides do not agree on a length of suspension, the NBA Players Association has the right to file a grievance representing Davis if he has an issue with the penalty.
Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck has said the Celtics want a part of the $6 million contract Davis signed in the offseason. The team can fine Davis games without pay, such as the Golden State Warriors did with Monta Ellis, who badly sprained his ankle in a scooter mishap but told the team initially he did it working out on the basketball court.
