Injured Celtics forward Glen Davis said today he expects to return to practice Dec. 1, a little more than a month after he underwent surgery to repair is broken right thumb. Davis is expected to miss two months of court time with the injury.

Even if Davis does return to practice Dec. 1, he acknowledged it would be up to the coaching staff to determine when he could return to game action Davis, who currently has a cast on the thumb and right hand, said he is unable to do even the simplest tasks at the moment, which include cutting his food and buttoning his shirts. The biggest problem Davis has faced so far with the cast? It stinks. Literally.

Davis worked out with Celtics strength coach Brian Doo before tonight's game, just doing running and conditioning drills.

  • On his highly-publicized comments about playing in the NFL, Davis told a group of reporters that they were grossly overplayed. Yes, he likes football. And yes, he could probably have played in the NFL had he chosen football instead of basketball. But he's not about to take Benjamin Watson's job.

    As Davis said, "LeBron could have done the same thing. Doesn't mean he will."
