When New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson brought Rasheed Wallace out of retirement, he had to know the risks of signing a 38-year-old veteran that had not played in the NBA for two years.
Wallace proved that he could contribute to the Knicks, even at his age. He averaged 7.2 points and 4.2 rebounds playing an average of 14.6 minutes over 20 games.
He was an important role player on the Knicks’ front line but he has been out since December 15 with what was originally thought to be just a sore left foot.
Now we know it is a stress reaction that could keep him out for the rest of the season.
According to ESPN, a source with the team says “it doesn’t look good” even though Woodson seems to be trying to stay optimistic.
"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."
I know Woodson...
