Rasheed Wallace could make a surprising return to the Knicks lineup Monday when they take on the Charlotte Bobcats, their second to last regular season game. The 38-year-old, who hasn’t played a game since December 13, was estimated to miss at least eight weeks after having foot surgery in late February. This will be the eighth week and it couldn’t be better timing for the Knicks heading into the playoffs.
According to Marc Berman, New York Post:
Rasheed Wallace could play for the first time since mid-December tomorrow when the Knicks visit Charlotte, Mike Woodson said.
Wallace, who had foot surgery in late February, is significantly ahead of schedule. Wallace was on the court running today on the Garden floor before they faced the Pacers in an attempt to clinch the second seed and draw No. 7 Boston.
