The Knicks’ are still waiting on two veteran big men. Mike Woodson sounded less optimistic about one than the other
Marcus Camby remains out with a strained calf. He was supposed to miss 7-10 days and yesterday was Day 11.
“I can’t say he’s getting close,” Woodson said. “But he’s feeling better. I will talk to the training staff to see if he could be back next week.”
Woodson also said Rasheed Wallace, who continues working on his conditioning, hasn’t been cleared for practice.
“When the training staff comes to me and they think he’s conditioned enough to run up and down and play then we’ll evaluate him then,” Woodson said.
Woodson was asked how Wallace looks to him.
“He looks pretty good,” Woodson said. “He looks real good.”
It’s unclear whether they will play in any of the remaining four preseason games. But the Knicks’ goal is to have both men healthy and ready when the regular season begins Nov. 1.
If they can’t go in those four, the Knicks have about six days practice/scrimmaging before the opener for Camby and Wallace to work on their conditioning, getting their timing back and learn the schemes on both ends.
