Baron Davis came to tonight’s exhibition home opener dressed in street clothes, with his sprained right index finger heavily taped. He will not play in either of this weekend’s exhibition games.
I asked how it felt compared to other sprains he’s had and Baron said fairly tersely, “like a sprain.”
“It’s unfortunate, with the timing of everybody getting hurt not being able to play,” Davis said. “I think situations like this forces other guys to step up and we can see what we can get from other guys.”
Davis is scheduled to see a hand specialist on Monday and said he hopes to get back sometime next week. He injured the finger by falling awkwardly on his hand during practice on Friday.
