Marcus Camby injury: Knicks' C to miss 2-4 weeks

Bruce Bennett

Knicks center Marcus Camby could miss up to a month with plantar fasciitis in his left foot, which has New York seriously considering the possibility of signing free agent forward Kenyon Martin.

New York Knicks center Marcus Camby will miss two-to-four weeks after an MRI revealed plantar fasciitis in his left foot.

Camby's foot has been giving him problems since the preseason, and he has played just 14 games all year. He re-aggravated the injury in the Knicks' 81-76 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Thursday night.

With Camby now out, Rasheed Wallace on the shelf due to a stress fracture in his right foot and Amare Stoudemire on a minutes limit, New York finds themselves very thin in the frontcourt. This issue could force the Knicks to look for another big man, and free agent forward Kenyon Martin is reportedly on their radar.

In order to sign Martin, the Knicks would have to release somebody else. The most likely candidate is guard James White, who actually started in the 108-101 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Friday night. Kurt Thomas is also a candidate to be released, but it would not make much sense to let him go considering the problem at hand.

Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski first reported that the Knicks and Martin have discussed a possible 10-day contract, but head coach Mike Woodson has denied any interest.
