Rasheed Wallace Close to Returning?
Rasheed Wallace, the Knicks veteran with the scruffy beard, has been on the court before games for the last month practicing his jumper, mostly from behind the 3-point line. He may get the chance to do it in a situation that counts when the Knicks visit the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday.
Before the Knicks’ 90-80 victory Sunday against the Indiana Pacers, Coach Mike Woodson said Wallace was close to returning to the lineup.
The Knicks have not practiced in recent weeks, but Wallace participated in the team’s walk-through Sunday and was on the court with his teammates Thursday for a shootaround before their game against the Bulls in Chicago.
