The Knicks have announced the release of F/C Solomon Jones, who appeared in two games, making one start while the team dealt with various frontcourt injuries last week. The move might ultimately be explained by the bigger news of the day: Rasheed Wallace may play tonight against the Charlotte Bobcats. Newsday's Al Iannazzone: There is a good chance Rasheed Wallace will try and play tonight. Newark Star-Ledger

Rasheed Wallace could play for the first time since mid-December tomorrow when the Knicks visit Charlotte, Mike Woodson said. Wallace, who had foot surgery in late February, is significantly ahead of schedule. Wallace was on the court running today on the Garden floor before they faced the Pacers in an attempt to clinch the second seed and draw No. 7 Boston. According to Woodson, Wallace will make the determination if he is ready for a cameo vs. Charlotte. At the worst, Woodson would like to play him vs. Atlanta in the season finale. New York Post

According to Thomas, even Rasheed Wallace—he of the NBA-record technical-foul tally—has a slight desire to coach someday. Wallace, who has been injured and is usually unavailable in the locker room, couldn't be reached for comment. "These guys have all played a major role somewhere for some team," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said of his veterans, mentioning Thomas, Kidd, Wallace, Prigioni and Marcus Camby by name, although Camby doesn't sound interested in coaching. "We obviously did our homework [in acquiring the players], but they've been so much more than we ever expected." Wall Street Journal

The Knicks soon may make a hard decision on cutting either Thomas or Rasheed Wallace, who had foot surgery and seems a long shot to make it back. That would open up a roster spot for a big man, probably one out of the D-League. The Knicks will stand pat for now and see how the healing goes with Thomas and Wallace, who is to have stitches taken out of his foot this week. The Knicks still believe Amar’e Stoudemire, who had knee surgery nine days ago, can make it back for the playoffs. Thomas had been playing for several years with a stress fracture and now it has been re-aggravated. Dr. Anish Kadakia, a leading orthopedic foot surgeon at Northwestern Hospital, told The Post because this is not a new stress fracture, it can get better within a month. New York Post

But when Woodson was asked if he has reconsidering waiving Wallace, a player he convinced to come out of two-year retirement, the head coach said: "I don't know where that came from. That was you guys (in the media). I never made that statement about waiving Rasheed. Rasheed still has a chance to bounce back as well but again as we go up this road we've just got to wait and see. "Are these guys able to come back for us? I don't know what the process is in terms of being able to add another roster spot. I haven't really looked into that." New York Daily News

Anthony missed his second straight game with what the Knicks have vaguely called a “sore/stiff right knee.’’ Woodson said Anthony is officially listed as “day to day’’ — the timetable Rasheed Wallace was given when he went down in mid-December. Wallace still has not returned. Woodson seemed a little more serious in discussing Anthony’s absence than he was in Detroit on Wednesday. Woodson said after last night’s game there is a possibility Anthony could play tomorrow when the Knicks host the Jazz before a five-game West Coast trip. He said he would know more today.

Rasheed Wallace’s surgery in which a screw was inserted into his left foot Thursday at the Hospital for Special Surgery was done with his goal of returning sometime during the playoffs. Wallace could have just called it a career, placed a cast on the foot for 12 weeks and been done with basketball. According to a source, he contemplated that possibility the last several days. The Knicks, however, announced an eight-week timetable that could put him back on the court in the middle of the first round. But one leading medical expert said Wallace will not be at 100 percent healed after just eight weeks from surgery to repair a Jones fracture of his fifth metatarsal. New York Post
