ESPN: Sources: Knicks fear Wallace done for season
Just the sort of thing you want to hear.
As the uncertainty surrounding Rasheed Wallace’s left foot injury lingers, members of the New York Knicks organization fear Wallace will be out for an extended period, possibly for the entire season, two league sources told ESPNNewYork.com.
Wallace has been out since Dec. 15 with a stress reaction in his left foot.
Knicks coach Mike Woodson said last week that he hoped Wallace would begin running this week, but he told reporters in London on Wednesday that Wallace, 38, has yet to do so.
“He’ll be back — but when, I don’t know,” Woodson said. “We’re gradually trying to get him back where he can run again so he can get back in a uniform. But when, we don’t know when yet.”
The uncertainty surrounding Wallace’s injury explains the Knicks’ interest in Kenyon Martin. It sounds like they’ll only sign Martin if they learn that Wallace will definitely be out for an extended period of time (how long is too long is an interesting question).
It is pretty funny that we find ourselves upset that Rasheed Wallace is taking a long time coming back from an injury. How things have changed from the preseason!
