NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Knicks say new X-rays of Rasheed Wallace's left foot show a broken bone, and he is expected to miss another eight weeks.
The forward will have surgery this week, a damaging blow for a team that has missed his play off the bench.
The 38-year-old Wallace came out of a two-year retirement to join the Knicks this season and averaged 7.2 points while appearing in 20 of the first 22 games, helping the Knicks get off to a 17-5 start.
He hasn't played since, and the Knicks said Wednesday his injury had progressed to a fractured bone at the outside of his left foot, otherwise known as a Jones fracture. Perhaps aware Wallace might not be able to return, the Knicks signed forward Kenyon Martin to a 10-day contract last week.
