When the Knicks signed Rasheed Wallace prior to the start of the season, they officially became the oldest team in NBA history by average age. Their frontline maintained that age when they signed Kenyon Martin a few days ago.
But it looks like they will definitely need Martin now. Rasheed needs foot surgery and will miss the remainder of the season.
Wallace has been sidelined since mid December and the Knicks announced on Wednesday that X-rays ‘showed progression to a fractured left fifth metatarsal, otherwise known as a Jones fracture.’
Surgery is scheduled for this week and according to the club recovery time is approximately eight weeks. The surgery could mean the end of Wallace’s career.
