Knicks Injury News: Marcus Camby Update

The New York Knicks had to deal with playing minus Marcus Camby for much of the season already, so perhaps playing without him again will not be too big a deal.  But it's never a good thing to lose any player, even a role player.  Camby re-injured his foot in the Knicks loss to the Indiana Pacers on Thursday.  He had an MRI yesterday confirming a strain of the plantar fasciitis.  It's a similar injury to the one Camby suffered earlier in the year.

Camby will miss 2-4 weeks says Ian Begley of ESPN New York.  In his absence, the Knicks will likely have to use Amare Stoudemire more than they had planned.  When Stoudemire came back, the intention was to use him off the bench, and they still can.  But with Camby out, Stoudemire may have to eat up minutes.


The Knicks are sitting on the second-best record in the Eastern Conference, but they want to take down the Miami Heat for first.  To do so, they will have to stay healthy.  While Miami has stayed relatively healthy all season long, the Knicks have battled a litany of injuries.  Camby's second bout with plantar fasciitis is just another hurdle for the Knicks to clear as the continue to prove themselves as one of the best teams in the East.
