Hours before Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors dropped 54 points on the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden, Mike Woodson spoke with the media New York about suffering a major loss. Yes, the Knicks would go on to beat the Warriors, but Woodson’s pre-game defeat focused instead on the left foot of Rasheed Wallace.
His season is likely over. But what about Wallace’s career?
“It’s somewhat of a blow because he’s gone through so much work to try to get back out on the floor, and now this happens,” Woodson said via the New York Times. “The only thing we can do now is think positive in terms of how the surgery is going to turn out.”
On Wednesday, the Knicks announced Wallace will undergo foot surgery to repair a broken bone in his injured left foot -- a fractured right fifth metatarsal to be exact. Factoring in the eight-week recovery time and there is a very good chance the NBA has seen the last of Roscoe, not just this season but for good.
