In his pre-game press conference last night, Mike Woodson offered some vague updates on the recovery of Rasheed Wallace, who's been out since-- holy shit, it's been a while-- December 13 with a stress reaction in his left foot. Woodson told reporters Wallace wouldn't be back before the All-Star break, but might return as soon as February 20 against Indiana, New York's first game after the break. Woodson also said this:
Woody says he expects Wallace to play no more than 9-10 minutes once he returns. "He'll never be 100 percent," he said.
And that's pretty much what we'd been guessing. Wallace's ailment is a stress issue, and running around on a basketball court (or whatever it is that Sheed does) is, ya know, stress.
Wallace will return after the All-Star break, but not at 100 percent.
