Rasheed Wallace To Sit Out Past All-Star Break
Rasheed Wallace has been sidelined since Dec. 13 due to a stress fracture in his right foot, and the New York Knicks expect the veteran forward to sit out at least until after the All-Star break.
“I just think they'll be ready once the All-Star break is (over). For sure, Rasheed. I don't know about [Marcus] Camby," Mike Woodson said.
“They'll continue to do their therapy work through the break. I’m hoping to have one of them back. Hopefully, Rasheed will be back on the floor.”
Even so, Woodson knows that Wallace's fitness won't be the same again this season.
“I don't know if he'll ever be 100% but I think he'll be good enough to give us some productive minutes but he'll never play real big minutes,” Woodson said. “That’s the beauty of having he and Camby. You can play him nine, 10 minutes and as long as they're productive, that helps us."
