The recovery time for Wallace’s surgery is 8 weeks. That puts him back on the court, at the earliest, during first round of the playoffs.

Today’s announcement came to no surprise, as Rasheed Wallace will most likely be done as a Knick for the season. This news makes the signing of Kenyon Martin a key acquisition and no longer a luxury. The New York Knicks should now be in the market for another big or a scoring point guard. A scoring point guard might be hard to find at this point in the year, that is why the trade deadline was more important then most people think. Finding a big to take Rasheed’s place will not be as hard as we think. We would assume that Kenyon and Marcus (Marcus maybe Friday), when back at full strength and conditioned , will be a solid back up rotation. However, it is also possible the Knicks bring up Henry Sims from the D-League for an extra practice body and valuable experience, The Knicks really like Sims and are nurturing him along at Erie. Stay tuned!
