Knicks' Marcus Camby Re-Injures Foot in Loss

Marcus Camby missed 12 games in December with plantar fasciitis, but he returned recently to help give the New York Knicks another big man option down low.  Unfortunately, it looks like Camby has re-injured his foot.  He left last night's game with what was originally diagnosed as a sore left foot.

Camby played 20 minutes, but he had to leave in the third quarter after re-injuring his foot, says Jared Zwerling of ESPN New York.  The extent of the injury is not yet known and it could be a separate issue from the plantar fasciitis.  He will be evaluated by doctors before his status is updated.

Camby has only played 14 games for the Knicks this season, and he has been more of a role player than anything.  He has started just four games, but his presence is important.  The Knicks were without Amare Stoudemire for most of the season, and he is still limited in the amount of time he can play.  Losing Camby will be a blow to the team's low post options going forward.

The Knicks lost last night's game despite a solid performance from Camby before he had to exit.  Camby had seven points and five rebounds in his 20 minutes of action.  He has averaged 2.1 points and 3.7 rebounds per game this season.  Camby's numbers are a far cry from where he was at the peak of his career, but at 38 years old it wouldn't be fair to expect much more than what he has given the Knicks.
