NBA Update – Knicks Rasheed Wallace is out for the rest of the year


NBA Update From Al Iannazzone, Rasheed Wallace has a broken bone in his left foot. And this will require Surgery , this means 38-year old forward is likely will be out for 2 months. If that holds true, his regular season is essentially over.

NBA UpdateIf he is able to fully recover in eight weeks, however, that would have him back right around the start of the first round. Wallace has only been able to play in 20 games so far this season, but New York is 16-4 when he suits up. Some of that is simply because he was playing when the Knicks were rolling earlier in the year, but that doesn’t change the fact that he can help anchor the second unit and free up Amar’e Stoudemire when he’s on the floor. He has to be healthy to do that though, and that’s a luxury he hasn’t had so far in his 16th NBA season. Suddenly, the recent addition of Kenyon Martin looks a little more important.

Tom Sells of writes “Bad news for the Knicks, and sad overall. I hope his career doesn’t end this way and would welcome him back next year (or, if we don’t cut him, in the playoffs) if (big if) he heals sufficiently. I believe we would need to add another player relatively quick to have him eligible for the playoffs. Not sure the exact deadline (but it could be as early as Friday).”

Wallace has played great for the Knicks prior to his injury, averaging 7.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in 14.6 minutes over 20 games. The 38-year-old ended a two-year retirement and joined the Knicks in training camp, signing a one-year contract for the veteran’s minimum. The Knicks take on Golden State Wednesday night. Warriors are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 road games. Over is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.
