Found March 01, 2013 on Knickswag:
This weekend Marcus Camby will make his debut for the second time this year. Marcus has been sidelined with the painful foot injury, plantar fasciitis. Marcus is an important player for this Knick team, he is here to back-up Tyson Chandler, giving the Knicks a full 48 minutes of solid center play. With either Tyson or Marcus out on the floor at all times, the Knicks can button up their defense. Nobody expects Marcus to play 24 minutes or even 20, but if he can give you a solid 15 minutes worth of intimidation, blocked shots and rebounding, he will solidify the Knicks defense into a top 10 team. With the addition of K-Mart and now Camby to the bench, the Knicks defense will have a solid rotation of toughness and veteran defensive prowess. The question is and has been all year for the entire Knicks team, can they stay healthy? Now that we know Rasheed Wallace is out for the year, this makes Marcus’ return more important than ever before. If he can stay healthy and contribute to this team, the Knicks will be in great shape for the final stretch of the season and the playoff run. However, if Marcus’ foot issues linger, then the Knicks might have be in the market for another big to help out. Options have dwindled and deadlines have passed, so if the Knicks are to make a move they better do it soon or they might be stuck with the health of Marcus Camby and his foot as the only back-up center and frontline help for the rest of the 12/13 season.   Peter A – Knickswag The post The Return of Marcus Camby: Part 2 appeared first on Knickswag - A New York Knicks Blog - News, Rumors, and more!.

New York Knicks Weekly Bench Report – February 28th Edition

Since my last bench report last Thursday, the Knicks have gone 2-1, losing last Friday night in Toronto, but then regaining momentum by winning their last two games against Philadelphia and Golden State. Not much has changed by way of the Knicks bench production, aside from the fact of what I believe to be a very consistent effort from their two big producers off the bench in...

Do The Knicks Have A Definitive #2 Scoring Option?

Stephen Curry cemented himself in Madison Square Garden history with his 54 point, 11-13 from behind the arc game on Wednesday, Feb. 27.

Rasheed Wallace's season is over. The New York Knicks forward is out eight weeks with a broken foot that will require season-ending surgery, according to the New York Times' Howard Beck.

Video: Steph Curry drops 54 on the Knicks

If you missed Steph Curry last night, you missed one of the NBA’s all-time great shooting exhibitions.  Curry shot 18 of 28 from the field, including in insane 11 of 13 from 3. That “Phantom” video from the NBA gives you a nice look at the prettiest jumper in the NBA.  It’s absolutely perfect form.   And last, there was almost nothing the Knicks could do to stop it…...
