Newly acquired New York Knicks center Marcus Camby will miss the next seven to 10 days due to a left calf strain according to a report by Jared Zweling of ESPNNewYork.com
"Injuries creep in and he'll bounce back. It's not a career-ending injury," coach Mike Woodson said after practice on Saturday. "I'm not looking for Marcus to play 30 minutes a game anymore, so if we can just keep him healthy enough to give us some productive minutes -- if it's two, three, four minutes -- that's going to be a plus for our ballclub."Camby missed today's practice and underwent an MRI after suffering the injury during New York's first week of training camp. It is expected that Camby misses the first two preseason games, against the Wizards and Celtics on October 11th and October 13th, respectively.
Camby just recently signed a three-year deal this off-season for $14.2 million. Injuries had been an issue in the past for him, as he has only once played over 74 games in one season. Last year, between Portland and Houston, Camby averaged 4.9 points and nine rebounds in 22.9 minutes of play. He started in 53 of the 59 games last season, a duty not excepted of him this year.
