Boston Celtics forward Glen (Big Baby) missed a recent game against the Knicks after his SUV spun out of control on the snowy Massachusetts turnpike. Davis suffered whiplash and a concussion after he shattered the driver’s side window with his head. He was wearing a seatbelt when the turnpike accident occurred.
Davis was transported to Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where he was visited by Celtics general manager Danny Ainge and several teammates. Fortunately, there were no major injuries in the three-car accident.
After missing two basketball games, Davis returned to the court to face-off against the LA Lakers, scoring four points and four rebounds in just 13 minutes.
Davis told the Boston Herald that the car crash “was scary. Any accident you get in is scary. You know, you’ve just got to appreciate life and really understand the reason why you’re here. I’m always thankful for that, and thank God that nobody got seriously injured.”
