For nearly two and a half months, up until Tuesday, Knicks reserve forward Rasheed Wallace had been listed on the team’s injury report with what it called a ‘sore left foot.’ Most onlookers believed there was more to the injury than that and on Wednesday afternoon, those people were proven correct.
The Knicks announced on Wednesday that new X-rays to Wallace’s left foot showed progression to a fractured left fifth metatarsal, otherwise known as a Jones fracture. Surgery is scheduled for this week and recovery time is approximately eight weeks.
