GREENBURGH, N.Y. – New York Knicks forward Rasheed Wallace has retired again from the NBA after he was unable to recover from a left foot injury.
The Knicks say in a statement that because of his injury Wallace "will not be available to play for us during the playoffs."
Wallace ended a two-year retirement this season to join the Knicks and was a key player off the bench during their strong start. But he hadn't played since December before returning Monday against Charlotte, but he exited after 4 minutes because of continued soreness.
Coach Mike Woodson had been hoping Wallace would be able to play in the postseason, which starts Saturday.
