Knicks center Rasheed Wallace is expected to begin practicing with the team after the All-Star break, reports ESPN New York. The 38-year-old has been out since Dec. 15 with a stress reaction in his left foot. Coach Mike Woodson said Wallace might never be 100 percent healthy this season, but he could still be a valuable contributor to the team.

"I think he'll be good enough to give us some productive minutes but he'll never play real big minutes," the coach said. "That's the beauty of having he and [Marcus] Camby. You can play him 9, 10 minutes and as long as they're productive, that helps us."

Wallace, who is making a return to the NBA after a three-year hiatus, was averaging 7.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in 14.6 minutes per game before the injury.
