Davis departs with ankle sprain

Celtics forward Glen Davis, playing in only his third game of the season after missing the first 27 because of a fractured right thumb, departed Monday's game against the Golden State Warriors with a mild right ankle sprain.

Davis got tangled with Golden State's Ronny Turiaf scrambling for a loose ball in the offensive end early in the fourth quarter. He tumbled to the ground and seemed more concerned with his taped thumb than anything else, but started limping as he got to his feet and hobbled off the court.

"I didn't even ask; he'll be all right," Rivers said when asked about Davis' health. "The way I look at it, we'll find out [Tuesday]."

Davis contributed three points and five rebounds in 10 minutes.

(Update: According to the Boston Globe, Davis left the arena on crutches and confirmed he had a sprained ankle. Davis wore a protective boot and, while X-rays were negative, he didn't seem particularly positive about the injury. "I sprained the ankle before (last season), so hopefully I'll be back soon," said Davis. "I can't walk. If I can't walk, I can't run.")
