Marcus Camby is on the way back. Next week.
In his first comments since going down on the third day of training camp with a calf strain, Camby Wednesday said he believes he will be back to practice Tuesday once the Knicks return from their three-game preseason road trip to Montreal-Albany-Syracuse.
The 38-year-old backup center, one of their marquee offseason free-agent signings, also vowed he will be good for the season opener Nov. 1 in Brooklyn. The Knicks originally said he would be out 7-to-10 days, but it’s now likely going to be more than two weeks.
“I feel like I’m almost right there,’’ Camby said. “Doctors still want me to be out a couple of more days for rehab and treatment. I want to play. I want to be out there with the guys.
“We’re still trying to be very cautious about his injury,’’ coach Mike Woodson said. “No need to rush him.’’
