LAS VEGAS — Former All-Star guard Baron Davis said Thursday he plans to play in the NBA again, even though he will probably miss all 2012-13 because of a serious knee injury.
The 33-year-old veteran of 13 seasons with five teams suffered complete tears of two ligaments in his right knee and a partially torn tendon while playing for the Knicks in the May 6 playoff game against the Heat. The typical recovery time is 12 months.
Davis averaged 20.5 minutes in 29 games (14 starts) in his one season in New York, dealing with hamstring and previous knee issues along the way.
He is still wearing a knee brace, but otherwise looked in good condition.
