Rockets center Marcus Camby, who has been sidelined with plantar fasciitis, is undergoing a non-surgical rehab in attempt to get back on the court in as little as two weeks.
“My plantar fascia is torn,” Camby told the Houston Chronicle’s Jonathan Feigen on Tuesday in Manila. “I’m trying to do whatever I can to avoid surgery. We’re just going to rehab it and see how it goes in the next two weeks and take it from there. We don’t want to rehab it and nurse it and have it still be lingering. That is something I’m going to sit back and figure out and definitely look toward long term, as the season progresses to the second half of the season. I have to be smart about it.”
If the therapy doesn’t go well, surgery that will sideline him for at least two months is the most likely option.
Camby, a 17-year veteran of the NBA who has scored 9,262 points and grabbed 9,513 rebounds in his career, is in his second stint with the Rockets, having played 19 games with Houston during the 2011-2012 season.
Last year Camby played in 24 games for the New York Knicks.
