Could Knicks' Rasheed Wallace be Done for the Year?

Rasheed Wallace has been out since mid-December.  The veteran New York Knicks' forward has been battling a stress reaction in his left foot.  The injury is severe enough that it has limited Wallace to just 20 games this season, and it could cost Wallace the remainder of the season.

According to Ian Begley of ESPN New York, Wallace's foot injury is causing some concern in New York.  Some in the Knicks' organization believe Wallace could be done for the year.  Wallace was supposed to be making progress by this point, but he has yet to even start jogging or running.  Coach Mike Woodson is not concerned that Wallace will miss the rest of the season, though.

"He'll be back -- but when, I don't know," Woodson said. "We're gradually trying to get him back where he can run again so he can get back in a uniform. But when, we don't know when yet."
The Knicks would love to have Wallace back to add to their low post presence.  While he has been relegated to a bench role as his career has gone on, Wallace has still proven to be a successful forward in the league.

Wallace is averaging 7.2 points per game and 4.2 rebounds per game.  In his 20 games-played, Wallace is averaging 14.6 minutes per game.
