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.

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.
