Glen Davis Injury: Magic Forward Hyperextends Knee

The Orlando Magic clinched a playoff spot on Sunday night, but in the victory they may have lost forward Glen Davis for a couple of games due to a hyperextended knee.

Orlando is already playing without center Dwight Howard, but losing Davis could be another big blow to the team. While Davis has been very hot and cold on the season, he's still a big body off the bench which is an area the Magic have been lacking, especially with Howard out of the line up.
