Lineup tonight; Davis is back, but no Padgett or Lockhart
Coach Whitting said that Grimsley is still out, Padgett has to get another injection so probably won’t be available this weekend, Davis is Day-to-Day, King is battling some minor injuries.

In this thread, I see claims that Davis is out for the year, Davis is back, and Davis is day to day.
Anyone care to clarify?
Davis is in the lineup tonight so it doesn’t look like he’s out for the year. Whitting said before the game that he’s day-to-day so that sounds like the official word.
