Rasheed Wallace Returned and Quickly Re-Injured His Left Foot

Rasheed Wallace’s return to the court lasted a grand total of four minutes — the veteran forward asked New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson to take him out of last night’s game (a 106-95 loss to the Charlotte Bobcats) and did not return. Per the NY Post: “I’m not saying it’s a setback,’ Woodson said. ‘He was a little sore. He asked me to come out and I pulled him. We’ll evaluate it a little more and see how he feels.’ [...] Wallace entered with 3:08 left in the first quarter and then exited at 11:18 of the second, playing all of 3:50 before the team announced he was done for the night with a sore left foot. In his 21st game this season and his first game since Dec. 13 while battling a fractured foot, Wallace made one of three shots and scored two points. Woodson had said he wanted to ‘just test him and see where he is.’ He was in the infirmary fairly soon. ‘I wasn’t disappointed. I thought the minutes he gave were positive,’ said Jason Kidd, who played 21 minutes off the bench as all five starters went at least 41 minutes. ‘He’s probably going to have some soreness. I’m just happy that he’s not hurt. Hopefully he can build on the four minutes. I’m not concerned at all. He’s coming off a surgery, so the big thing is he’s going to be sore. Hopefully he didn’t hurt himself.’”

    “I hope he can build on the four minutes”………really?

  • RayJr

    Did he not rehab at all? To get sore within 4 mins tells me he just sat around and waited for it to heal.

    I thought his first 3 minutes were positive, the last minute was sub-par

    excuse me, the knicks, even at the worst run of this season, never never said or blamed anything on the injuries. and please rondo is one guy, we had 9 people in uniform at one point, tyson, k-mart, amare, sheed, thomas. If anything this the only thing that saves the knicks from the crying boston fans “oh we could of beaten you with rondo” argument.
