The Knicks have announced the release of F/C Solomon Jones, who appeared in two games, making one start while the team dealt with various frontcourt injuries last week. The move might ultimately be explained by the bigger news of the day: Rasheed Wallace may play tonight against the Charlotte Bobcats. Wallace ran before Sunday's win over the Indiana Pacers and coach Mike Woodson said he would try to get the veteran some playing time in one of the Knicks' final two games, both of which are void of any postseason implications. The Knicks will also be without Carmelo Anthony (sore shoulder), Kenyon Martin (sore knee, sprained ankle) and Tyson Chandler (bulging disc in neck). However, Anthony told reporters on Sunday night that his shoulder was fine. Woodson told reporters prior to the game that he expects both Martin and Chandler to be ready for the playoffs. Expect to see a lot of James White, Chris Copeland and Steve Novak over the final two games of the season as Woodson works to rest Anthony, J.R. Smith and Raymond Felton as much as possible. With the empty roster space, the Knicks could add a perimeter player, such as D-League guard Delonte West, who they were rumored to be interested in earlier in the year.
