Davis Healthy Again?
Los Angeles, CA - Baron Davis learned Monday his injured finger does not need surgery, and the Clippers guard might be ready to play in the season opener.
Bet 2009 NBA Finals Future Odds
Davis has a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his left ring finger, but is expected to resume basketball activities in a week. The Clippers open their season against the Los Angeles Lakers on Oct. 29.
While the Clippers spent big to acquire Davis in the offseason, oddsmakers still feel that L.A. is a long shot to win the 2009 NBA Finals. Oddsmakers from online sports book SBG Global have established the Clippers as 75/1 long shots to win the 2009 NBA Finals.
Still, a healthy Davis would make a world of difference for the Clippers’ odds in 2008-09. He help lead the Golden State Warriors on a deep playoff run in 2007 and is one of the better guards in basketball.
Davis has missed the Clippers' last four preseason games - the first two because of the flu, the last two after injuring his finger.
