Davis was sidelined in December after suffering a herniated disc.  He is expected to be cleared this morning but his first practice may be limited.  If he is not able to play against Houston this Saturday, he will try to make his debut at home against the Detroit Pistons, according to the Post. Davis, who has averaged 16.5 points and 7.3 assists over the course of 12 seasons, signed a one-year deal with the Knicks for $2.5 Million after being released by the Cavaliers this winter. The two-time All-Star is expected to be the club’s starting point guard when he returns.
