Report: Knicks C Marcus Camby (calf strain) out 7-to-10 days
New York Knicks center Marcus Camby will reportedly miss seven to 10 days with a left calf strain.
Hopefully the New York Knicks' training staff is up to speed on the latest and greatest geriatric treatments. Otherwise, this could be a long season. It's starting already.
Knicks veteran center Marcus Camby will miss seven to 10 days with a left calf strain, according to Newsday. The 38-year-old big man underwent an MRI after suffering the injury during New York's first week of training camp.
New York opens its regular season against the Brooklyn Nets on Nov. 1 at the Barclays Center. Camby has a little more than three weeks to get healthy for that cross-town clash.
Camby signed a three-year deal with the Knicks this summer worth $13.2 million. He has never been known as an ironman; during his 16-year NBA career, he has played more than 75 games just once. Here with the Knicks, though, less will be asked of Camby than anywhere he has played in roughly a decade. Starting center Tyson Chandler will handle the bulk of the minutes and the responsibilities; Camby, who started for the Portland Trail Blazers and, at times, the Houston Rockets last season, can shift into a purely reserve, minute-filling role.
