Indiana sophomore forward Devin Davis, who was injured in an accident early in the morning on Saturday, Nov. 1, is headed home today according to a post on Instagram by his father, Devin Davis Sr.

Indiana coach Tom Crean confirmed at his press conference on Wednesday that Davis has been released from the hospital and will stay in Indianapolis for outpatient care, but there’s no timetable for when he might be able to return to basketball.

“The fact that he’s progressed enough to the point that he can go home, that’s good, that’s very good.” Crean said. “I don’t know if there was ever a schedule that could be put in place on that. It’s like concussions and this was obviously worse than that. There’s no way to really put a timeline on that. And if the doctors aren’t putting a timeline on it, then there’s no way that we can.”

Heading home, God is so good. Now ready for the next step

On Nov. 7, Indiana announced that Davis would be transferred to Indianapolis for rehabiliation after spending close to a week in IU Health Bloomington Hospital.

“It makes us feel great, man,” Indiana junior Yogi Ferrell said today after learning of Davis’ release from the hospital. “I definitely want Devin back here as soon as possible. We’re going to try to get him back here and get him back healthy.”

As a freshman, Davis averaged 2.4 points and 2.6 rebounds in 8.8 minutes per game.

    The best news of the day! Good luck on a speedy and full recovery Devin

    Glad he’s getting better so quickly. Basketball obviously isn’t nearly as important as his overall health but I’m becoming cautiously optimistic that he could be ready near the end of the year. I know that a lot has to happen, but if anyone can do it it’s Devin Davis

    It’s gonna be a special moment whether it’s this year or farther down the road, when Devin gets his name called to check into a game at the hall.

    Great to hear this news. Glad to see him on the mend. His parents must be relieved and hope for nothing but the best from this young man. I am sure he will do well.

    I’m guessing he will be a medical redshirt this year, but what an awesome story it will be if he comes back one day to the roar of the IU faithful and becomes the player we were hoping he would become!

    Wonderful news! Praying that Devin will continue to rehab and make a full recovery.

    Now that is a great sight to see. Rehab means someone’s on a path to get better. Outpatient care signifies a step towards normality. All of this is light years away from where our worst fears resided, which would’ve been hearing that doctors were fighting just to keep him from backsliding, or were working to restore him to consciousness. Those fears are put to rest, firmly. And that’s a great thing.

    Seeing him just walk is a bonus. Hearing that he’s headed home is a huge one. There is nothing but good news here.

    I would love to see him come back this year just to sit on the bench with the guys… no playing… just there with his teammates and for him to hear the crowd cheer out his name … DE-VIN DAVIS, DE-VIN DAVIS clap, clap, clapclapclap.
