Knicks' Rasheed Wallace to have foot surgery, likely out for season

Wednesday February 27th, 2013

New York Knicks forward Rasheed Wallace will have surgery on a broken bone in his foot and will likely be out for the rest of the season, the team announced Wednesday.

Wallace has been out since December, though the team had said it hoped he would be able to return at some point. He is expected to miss eight weeks following the surgery, which leaves open a possibility he could return during the postseason.
