New York Knicks’ Rasheed Wallace Back On The Court After Sitting Out Game Due To Sore Foot
Rasheed Wallace, a forward for the New York Knicks, was forced to sit out of a game against the Houston Rockets on Friday night due to a sore foot. The Knicks lost the game to the Rockets by 28 points. The final score was 131-103.
After sitting out of the game Friday night, Wallace was back on the court Sunday for a game against the Detroit Pistons. He was examined shortly before the game by team doctors and was cleared to play. The Knicks won the game 121-100.
There are rumors that the soreness in Wallace’s foot may be caused by plantar fasciitis, but nothing has been confirmed.
While plantar fasciitis is the most common diagnosis for heel pain, it is not the only possible diagnosis. There are many reasons for foot pain and soreness, but athletes are particularly susceptible to some conditions, plantar fasciitis included.
Other common sports injuries include:
- Achilles tendon problems and Achilles tendinitis
- Shin splints
- Stress fractures
- IT Band Syndrome
- Ankle sprains and fractures
To help protect your feet and ankles from injuries while playing sports, remember to always stretch for an appropriate amount of time (usually 15 minutes or more) prior to playing or practicing.
Also, always wear suitable footwear for whatever sport you are playing and play on safe, appropriate surfaces.
