Knicks forward Renaldo Balkman on sideline at training camp with injured ankle

Oct 05, 2007

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - New York Knicks forward Renaldo Balkman has endured a rough training camp, mostly because he can't do much training with an injured ankle.

Sidelined for a month with a stress and cartilage injury in his right ankle, Balkman has watched from the sideline during camp at the College of Charleston this week.

"This is probably my first injury where I have had to sit out for a couple of weeks," said Balkman, a former South Carolina standout who has been limited mainly to shooting foul shots. During most of practice, he wears a protective boot on his ankle.

I love Balkman...he inspires me; just to work hard everyday, no matter if I suceed or fail. My brother is working on his shooting with that damn foot on his leg. Go Renaldo...Latino siempre(Panama) future SF of the Knicks.
