After 10 weeks of being listed as day to day with what first was called a sore left foot, then upgraded to a stress reaction, the Knicks revealed Rasheed Wallace will undergo surgery that likely will end his season.

The team said new X-rays showed progression to a fractured left fifth metatarsal, known as a Jones fracture. Recovery time is approximately eight weeks, but for Wallace, 38, it’s hard to imagine him returning this season because that timetable would put him in the postseason.

"We started to rehab him back, so it’s somewhat of a blow because he’s gone through so much work to try and get back on the floor and then this happens," coach Mike Woodson said. "The one thing we can do now is think positive in terms of how the surgery is going to turn out, and he’s got to rehab back."

Wallace played well for the Knicks early this season after taking off two years with an early retirement. He was coaxed back into action by Woodson, who had been on the Detroit Pistons’ staff when both were part of a championship team.
