DAVIS SET TO DEBUT
The Toronto Raptors announced on Monday afternoon that they have recalled rookie forward Ed Davis from the Erie BayHawks of the NBA D-League.
In 2 games with the BayHawks, Davis averaged 10.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 3.0 blocks in about 17.5 minutes of action.
Davis is expected to arrive in Toronto in time for Tuesday’s practice and he will be in the line up for the Raptors when they host the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night at the ACC.
QUICK UPDATE ON PEJA
Peja Stojakovic, who missed yesterday’s game against Atlanta with a swollen left knee, did not practice with the Raptors today.
He will be re-evaluated again tomorrow and his status for Wednesday’s home game versus the Wizards has yet to be determined.
Raptors fans may not get a chance to see rookie sensation John Wall in action on Wednesday.
Wall missed Washington’s first showdown against Toronto – 2 weeks ago – when the Wiz blew out the Raps in D.C. The youngster was sidelined for that game with a sprained ankle … an injury that actually kept him out of Flip Saunders’ line up for 4 games.
Wall returned to action against Philadelphia on November 23 and then played again two nights later … when the Wizards were hammered in Atlanta. However, he was back on the Inactive List on Saturday night when Washington lost by 1 to the Orlando Magic.
His latest ailment: a bruised right knee.
The Wizards play in Miami tonight and Wall is listed as questionable for that game.
There’s no doubt that Washington could use the rookie’s services though. Not only is Wall averaging 18.0 points and 9.1 assists, but the Wizards have yet to win on the road this season (0-7) and they’re currently playing without Yi Jianlian, Al Thornton, and Josh Howard as well.
