Today, the New York Knicks announced that Rasheed Wallace will undergo surgery to repair his injured left foot. The recovery time for the surgery is 8-weeks, but the Knicks hope he will be able to play in the playoffs.
Rasheed Wallace has not suited up for the Knicks since December 12th, and the Knicks kept a loose-timeline for his return. Now we now that he’ll need surgery before returning to the court. Some might ask, “why didn’t Sheed opt for surgery sooner?” Well, the Knicks were under the assumption that the injury would heal on its own. Obviously, that wasn’t the case.
The New York Knicks plan on keeping Rasheed Wallace on their roster, hoping that Sheed will be ready to go in time for the playoffs.
