Rasheed Wallace

  1. Bad trend for Boston: Knicks’ veteran bench mattered, Celtics’ didn’t

    Tyson Chandler, looking rusty after missing a lot of time with a bulging disc in his neck, wasn’t himself. The New York Knicks count on him to be a defensive force that owns the paint and get a few points off pick-and-rolls, but he wasn’t really doing either. So Mike Woodson turned to his bench…

  2. Why we’ll miss him: A video compilation of Rasheed Wallace yelling “Ball Don’t Lie”

    New York Knicks' Rasheed Wallace reacts to a referee's call against the Chicago Bulls during the first half of their NBA game in Chicago

    In terms of injury and game on the court, maybe it was time for Rasheed Wallace to hang it up and retire. Again. But we’re still going to miss him, one of the great unconventional personalities of the game. And we’re going to miss him complaining about every foul ever called on him then yelling…

  3. Rasheed Wallace retires from NBA. Again. But he means it now.

    Coach Mike Woodson basically begged Rasheed Wallace to come out of retirement and play for the Knicks this season — and for 20 games it worked. He averaged 7.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in 14.6 minutes per game giving them solid play off the bench and letting Tyson Chandler and other bigs get some rest.…

  4. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Jazz win keeps playoff dream alive

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching the news out of Boston with horror and yet were reminded of the heroism of both first responders and everyday Americans who did what they could to help….

  5. Knicks to sit Anthony, Chandler Martin Monday night

    Apr 15, 2013, 3:38 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    With nothing left to play for — the Knicks have locked up the second seed in the East and will face the Celtics in the first round of the playoffs starting this weekend — some key players are going to get rest. Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler and Kenyon Martin will all be out for the…

  6. Solomon Jones: Knicks starter by night, free-agent-to-be by day

    Apr 15, 2013, 1:55 PM EDT

    Iman Shumpert, Raymond Felton, Carmelo Anthony, Solomon Jones

    The Knicks started Solomon Jones yesterday. Today, they waived him. Jones played just two game with New York, but he will go down in Knicks history, according to Adam Reisinger: Solomon Jones finishes his stint in NY with the worst PER in Knicks history (minimum 15 minutes played): -5.7 Why would the Knicks do this?…

  7. Rasheed Wallace may return for Knicks this week

    Apr 14, 2013, 6:01 PM EDT

    rasheed wallace knicks

    Rasheed Wallace hasn’t played a game for the Knicks since mid-December due to a stress fracture that later required surgery, but he may be ready to come back just in time for New York’s trip to the postseason. From Marc Berman of the New York Post: Rasheed Wallace could play for the first time since…

  8. Knicks sign Solomon Jones, not James Singleton

    Apr 12, 2013, 12:21 PM EDT

    Solomon Jones

    The Knicks finally realized 38-year-old Rasheed Wallace, 39-year-old Marcus Camby and 40-year-old Kurt Thomas might not hold up for a full season as the team’s backup bigs. After initial reports they would waive Thomas and sign James Singleton, the Knicks will actually do something about their old and injured frontcourt. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:…

  9. Knicks sign James Singleton, will release Kurt Thomas

    Apr 10, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

    UPDATE: April 12, 1 p.m. ET: The deal for James Singleton fell through due to some issue with his being released from his Chinese team, so the Knicks signed Solomon Jones instead. April 10: The Knicks need frontline help, with so many of the veterans they brought in to fill those positions having been lost…

    The news you actually care about out of Wednesday’s combined meeting of the NBA owners’ sale and relocation committees will leak out over the next few days. That’s when we’ll see which side gained an advantage (if any) and where the owners are leaning on the question of where the Kings will play next season…

  11. Knicks ready to celebrate 50 wins

    Apr 1, 2013, 5:57 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks

    The Knicks are 46-26, and though a 4-6 finish to the season probably wouldn’t please them, they’re acting like it would be come with some positives. Ian Begley of ESPN: On the white board in a back corner of the Knicks’ locker room, “50” was written in blue marker, big enough for everyone to see.…

  12. Knicks injuries pile up: Chandler out week, Thomas 2-4 weeks

    Mar 19, 2013, 2:39 PM EDT

    New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler reacts after drawing a foul and scoring a basket against the Dallas Mavericks during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    Another day, another injured Knick. Or two. Before the season when we all joked about the Knicks old roster, particularly the bench, this was the concern. Old bodies break down more. The Knicks front line was already short with Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony sidelined with knee issues (although Anthony should be back this week…

  13. Knicks may make roster move but Rasheed Wallace is safe

    Mar 12, 2013, 2:59 PM EDT

    Rasheed Wallace

    Rasheed Wallace has played 20 games for the Knicks this season and after foot surgery is not likely going to make it back with the team this season. The Knicks are toying with the idea of adding some depth to their banged-up roster as they enter the final stretch of the season, but with a…

  14. Report: Four teams have conversations with Amundson

    Feb 28, 2013, 2:36 PM EDT

    Lou Amundson

    Around this time of year, with the playoffs looming and growing closer, teams start to think about adding a little bit of veteran depth to the roster. Guys that will not get a lot of run but can be trusted in small roles, plus will be professional in practice and preparation. That’s where Louis Amundson…

  15. Kenyon Martin says it was humbling to be left on NBA sidelines

    Feb 28, 2013, 11:33 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    Kenyon Martin was back on an NBA court Wednesday night, playing his first game as a member of the New York Knicks. He played just five minutes and had zeros across the box score, but with the news that Rasheed Wallace is out for the rest of the regular season (at least) the odds Martin…

  16. Rasheed Wallace needs foot surgery, out two more months

    Feb 27, 2013, 1:17 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Rasheed Wallace reacts to a referee's call against the Chicago Bulls during the first half of their NBA game in Chicago

    Rasheed Wallace hasn’t set foot on a court for the Knicks since December 13, yet the entire time he has been out the Knicks have listed him as day-to-day as if that was somehow going to keep the opposition off-guard. It was silly. At least they have come clean now — Wallace needs surgery on…

  17. Rasheed Wallace may be back after All-Star break but not at 100 percent

    Feb 5, 2013, 11:50 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v New York Knicks

    Rasheed Wallace has been out since Dec. 15 with a stress fracture in his foot. Of course, the Knicks have listed him as day-to-day that entire time, because they are the Knicks, but this was a long-term injury. One he should start practicing with the team again after the All-Star break, reports ESPNNewYork.com. Just don’t…

  18. ‘Melo vs. Garnett sideshow is dull, Knicks’ hard-fought win is not

    Jan 24, 2013, 11:56 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett played nice. In fact, in the third quarter Garnett went to the floor trying to complete an alley-oop and it was Anthony who was there to lend a hand and help him back up. There were no fireworks, no ejections, nothing. They may not be going out for a beer…

  19. Report: Knicks worried Rasheed Wallace could be done for season

    Jan 16, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Rasheed Wallace reacts to a referee's call against the Chicago Bulls during the first half of their NBA game in Chicago

    Rasheed Wallace has been out a month now with what the team first called a “sore left foot” then later changed that to a “stress reaction” in his left foot. You’ve got to love the Knicks, they can’t even admit it’s a stress fracture when it’s a stress fracture because… who knows why? They’re the…

  21. Knicks on road trip to London — and they’re happy for the rest

    Jan 15, 2013, 12:04 PM EDT

    Tyson Chandler, Steve Novak, Carmelo Anthony

    For the past couple weeks, the Knicks have not looked anything like the early season team that could be a threat to the Heat. New York is 4-6 in its last 10 games. Both the offense and defense have taken steps back in that time (both are a few points per possession off their season…

  22. Knicks Camby out at least two weeks with foot injury

    Jan 11, 2013, 7:24 PM EDT

    New York's Marcus Camby shoots near Indiana's David West and George Hill during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis.

    Marcus Camby has only played in 14 games for the Knicks this season — and now he’s going to miss a bunch more games. Camby has aggravated the plantar fasciitis he has battled in his foot and will be out two to four more weeks, tweets Frank Isola of Newsday. The bulk of the Knicks…

  23. Report: Knicks considering signing Kenyon Martin

    Jan 8, 2013, 6:41 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    Rasheed Wallace — at age 38 and having taken a season off from the NBA — really brought the Knicks something off the bench. Yes, there was 7.2 points a game and the threat of a big who can shoot to space the floor. But more importantly, he brought some size on defense in the…

    New York Knicks' Rasheed Wallace reacts to a referee's call against the Chicago Bulls during the first half of their NBA game in Chicago

    Rasheed Wallace missed his fourth straight game Friday night against the Bulls and the only upside there is that you can bet he would have gotten ejected too if he played. But in a vintage Knicks mode, they are being secretive about the foot injury keeping him out. Now the Daily News is reporting it…
