New York Knicks Reportedly Fear Rasheed Wallace’s Season is Over

Rasheed Wallace has been out since December 15 with a stress reaction in his left foot. According to ESPN sources, some in the New York Knicks organization fear he may be done for the season (during which the 39-year old forward provided quality minutes, and posted 7.2 points and 4.2 rebounds per game): “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. 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,’ Woodson said. The Knicks are currently in a holding pattern concerning Wallace, according to league sources. There are some in the organization who want to pursue a free agent immediately to replace Wallace. Among those being discussed internally is 35-year-old big man Kenyon Martin. Others, including Woodson, who coaxed Wallace to end a two-year retirement and join the Knicks, want to give Wallace time to heal before making a move to replace him. Wallace’s injury was originally described by the team as a sore left foot and he was listed as day to day. The team then clarified and called his injury a stress reaction after a report described it as a stress fracture.”
