Rasheed Wallace has been officially hired by the Pistons as a player development coach.
It will be interesting to see how he influences guys like Josh Smith, Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe, but it looks like he should be a great addition to Mo Cheeks' staff. Thu, Sep 26, 2013 12:37:00 PM

Rasheed Wallace is expected to become an assistant for the Pistons.

After sitting next to Wallace during Summer League, beat writer Vincent Goodwill says Wallace being a part of the Pistons coaching staff is basically a done deal. It might be fun to see him on the sidelines and his energy could help the young group in Detroit.

The Pistons are reportedly in talks with Rasheed Wallace to become an assistant coach.

Wallace decided to retire two months ago. He's a four-time All-Star, part of the Pistons' 2004 Championship and was a seriously underrated post defender. He also knows new coach Maurice Cheeks from their days together in Portland. But Wallace is also known for a temper and immaturity on the court, leading to 27 or more technical fouls in a season on four separate occasions.

Rasheed Wallace told ESPN New York he's unsure of what the future holds for him within the Knicks organization.

Wallace remained with the team as an adviser of sorts after retiring from the NBA in April. Coach Mike Woodson is a big fan of having his positive attitude and veteran experience around the team, but Wallace said he's focused on his family for now. Sheed did say he'll keep his New York residence for the time being and didn't rule out joining the team in a similar role next season.

Updating a previous item, Rasheed Wallace has decided to retire.

Sheed's four-minute cameo on Monday night will be his final in the NBA. His left foot injury never healed to the point where he could play again, and it's likely to be a chronic condition for the rest of his life.

Rasheed Wallace (foot) will not play on Wednesday.

Wallace is out with foot soreness and at this point it's fair to wonder if he can even be a small contributor during the Knicks playoff run.

Mike Woodson refused to call Rasheed Wallace's latest foot injury a setback.

"I’m not saying it’s a setback," Woodson said. "He was a little sore. He asked me to come out and I pulled him. We’ll evaluate it a little more and see how he feels." Wallace lasted all of four minutes in his first game since December and it's hard to envision how he'll make an impact in the postseason if he plays at all.

Rasheed Wallace (foot) will not return to Monday's game.

He played just four minutes and scored two points. He's been hobbled all year and Sheed is unlikely to make much of an impact this season with his perpetual foot problems.

There is a "good chance" Rasheed Wallace (foot) will play Monday vs. Charlotte.

If Wallace does play, it's hard to see how it'll be for more than 8-12 minutes given all the time he's missed and the Knicks needing him to be fresh for the playoffs. He's not a fantasy option, but at least it looks like he's finally about to play again. The NBA is a better place with more Sheed.

Rasheed Wallace (foot) could return to the Knicks for their game against the Bobcats on Monday.

This is a surprise and he was hoping just to run back on April 10. He's been out since mid-December and played just 20 games this year. Wallace is not going to have much of an impact this year and his frail foot can only take so much work.

Rasheed Wallace (foot) is hoping to begin running next week.

The fact that Wallace isn't even running yet shows how ridiculous his original "day-to-day" designation was. Sheed has been shooting the basketball and Mike Woodson said the veteran will "hopefully" begin running next week, but Wallace remains out indefinitely.

The Knicks are still hoping Rasheed Wallace (foot) can return during the postseason.

Wallace has reportedly been making some progress and was spotted doing shooting drills on Sunday, and his rehab will step up "even more this week with shooting drills," but it's not clear what his timetable is currently. He's no longer using crutches or in a walking boot, but he remains out indefinitely.

Rasheed Wallace had the walking boot taken off his left foot a few days ago and is no longer using crutches, according to beat writer Marc Berman.

There was a report in early March that Sheed was aiming to return for the playoffs, of which we were incredibly dubious. This doesn't exactly change our opinion on the matter but it is slightly encouraging. Even if Wallace does return this season, it likely wouldn't come until the second round of the playoffs at the earliest. We remain doubtful that Wallace will play again this season.

Rasheed Wallace (foot) is eyeing a return during the postseason, a source told the New York Post.

We're just not buying it. The source told the Post that Wallace debated for "several days" on surgery, but the reality is his foot was never going to heal the way it needed to on its own for him to be a contributor this season. We would be shocked to see Wallace back on the floor this season regardless of how long the Knicks last in the playoffs.
Fri, Mar 1, 2013 08:20:00 AM

Rasheed Wallace had surgery on his left foot Thursday and will be sidelined for approximately eight weeks.

An eight-week recovery timetable means Wallace is out for the rest of the regular season and the postseason would be the earliest possible return. However, we're incredibly skeptical that's even an option for Sheed. It's fair to wonder whether Wallace's NBA career is over at this point.
