Rasheed Wallace Quietly Retires from NBA for a Second Time

[Los Angeles Times]

Rasheed Wallace has been bothered by a left foot injury most of the season. New York Knicks Coach Mike Woodson told reporters Wednesday morning the veteran player was still struggling with soreness and might not be available for the playoff opener against Boston this weekend.

Soon after, Woodson learned Wallace would not play in that game — or any other. The Knicks announced Wallace’s retirement after 15 seasons in the NBA later in the morning.

“Rasheed has given this team everything he had,” Woodson said in the statement. “He is a winner, true professional and leader on and off the court. Due to his injury, he will not be available to play for us during the playoffs. We owe this season’s success to veterans like Rasheed.”
