    Default Ed Davis Hurts Knee in Mississauga Scrimmage

    "#Raptors forward Ed Davis tweaked knee during informal scrimmage in Mississauga last night. He is experiencing soreness, undergoing testing."

    Hope this isn't the beginning of a trend. It IS a tweak, so it may not be too serious. Let's hope, anyway.

    This can best be described as dumb. I lived near the CityPlace court and Jamario Moon used to come to the gym, never did he take part in any kind of scrimmage for exactly this reason. I guess Moon was smart in his own way.

    I don't really understand what your saying. The Raptors were having an informal workout this past week that included most of the Raptors outside of the international players, Reggie Evans and Marcus Banks. It wouldn't make sense for him to fly down for the practice and not play.

    Yeah, I hear ya. Let's find out what really happened, and more importantly, how serious the injury is or isn't before we get into wild speculation and fault finding. I mean some guys are making it sound like they already know he dropped into the Y for pickup game against some scrubs who spazzed out and caused this. Maybe true, but who knows.

    And yet, on the other hand, everybody was fawning all over Sonny and Demar because they dropped into a community center in TO a few weeks ago and actually did hoop it up with the local scrubs - caught on tape and everything.

    The Raptors have been part of too many negative stories! I just hope this is nothing major.

    Amir says. Heh got this buddy I played with in Detroit



    that is looking for some work and is a great locker room presence.



    BC phones Durpree’s agent



    and viola an instant replacement for Easy Ed.

    Ed Davis welcome to the Raptors you have now become the recipient of the first 10-11 much coveting unofficial Raptors game day award

    Under the Bus – Ed Davis

    Welcome Easy Ed.

    Honestly I'm not mad at Ed Davis. I mean it really sucks, but a basketball player isn't allowed to play basketball unless it's sanctioned? I'm sorry i just don't agree.

    His contract is for millions of dollars, they should have some sort of say in how and where he plays in my opinion.

    I voted no on the front page because as I recall the question does not include the word "allowed"

    I voted no on the front page because I don't think it is that smart to play in unauthorized and unsupervised scrimmages and/or summer leagues like at the HAX.

    A NBA player is not going to improve his game very much if at all by playing in these summer leagues. However, they do risk incurring a major injury.

    There are a lot better and safer basketball related activities available for a NBA player to develop his game during the summer than by playing in scrimmages and games at places like the HAX in Los Angeles.

    Just my opinion

    I am pretty sure that the player's contract has some restrictions in it related to what they can't do, to the extent that the Player's Association allows it

    Well it wasn't any secret what these guys were doing. They've been tweeting about the last week. Does the team not care? I don't know. Maybe they should outlaw crossing the street unsupervised and pedal bikes too.

    On another note everybody was talking about how great it was that the young guys came to TO early to work on their game and play each other.

    It would be interesting to find out if there are contract limitations on the type of basketball activities that a player can not engage in. I am pretty sure that there are restrictions in contracts related to sky diving, motorcycle racing etc.

    Playing in unsupervised scrimmages is probably allowed otherwise there wouldn't have been all of those NBA players that played in that charity game like Amir did in the Luda Celebrity Game last month.

    "on February 23, 2007, Vladimir Radmanović revealed that he had hurt himself in a fall while snowboarding. Radmanović's Lakers contract banned him from taking part in activities that involve significant risk of injury, including skiing and snowboarding. An NBA league source said that voiding the contract would be extremely unlikely, with a suspension or fine more likely. This proved to be true, as he was fined $500,000"

    And that's what I'm saying. So players don't get injured in sanction scrimmages? Or in practice? Or games? Hindsight is 20/20 and if Davis didn't get injured we'd all be praising him for working on his game.
