Alan Hahn's post on New York Knicks | Latest updates on Sulia
Marcus Camby was in a walking boot and on crutches after last night's game. But still optimistic. More:
"I feel in my heart," he said, "I'll be back soon."
Camby said he "felt a sharp pain in the bottom of my [left] foot" after he landed following a pass attempt in the third quarter. Camby said it was an injury that was "like I did earlier in the year."
In early December, Camby identified his injury to reporters as plantar fasciitis. It has caused him to miss 21 games so far this season.
With Camby likely back on the shelf and Rasheed Wallace (stress reaction in left foot) also out, with no timetable for a return, the Knicks are suddenly a much smaller team along the front line.
There have been reports that free agent Kenyon Martin is interested in joining the Knicks, but to sign Martin, the Knicks would have to cut a player with a guaranteed contract. With more than half a season to play, that usually isn't a likely scenario until much later in the season.
But if either Camby or Wallace is determined to miss a large amount of time, it may become necessary.
