New York Knicks guard Baron Davis received bad news regarding his injured knee as an MRI revealed that he has a partial tear of the patella tendon and complete tear of the ACL and MCL, the New York Post reported Monday.
He will be out 12 months, which means he will miss all of next season as well as the rest of this season. In fact, his career is probably over.
Davis is expected to have surgery next week. After sustaining the injury in Sunday's Game 4 of the series against the Miami Heat, Davis had talked about trying to return next season. But that seems unlikely now.
Davis was sidelined with a herniated disk until February this season, and then took over as the Knicks starting point guard after Jeremy Lin went down with a knee injury.
Davis, who turned 33 last month, is in his 13th NBA season. He averaged just 6.1 points in 29 games this season.
