NEW YORK (AP) -- New York Knicks big man Marcus Camby is expected to miss two to four weeks because of an injured left foot.

The Knicks said Friday that Camby had an MRI which revealed a strained left plantar fascia. He was hurt Thursday in a loss at Indiana, a game Knicks coach Mike Woodson said was probably the best he'd seen the veteran play this season.

The 38-year-old Camby missed much of the early season with the injury, but had recently moved into the starting lineup at power forward for the short-handed Knicks. Woodson said the Knicks would start 40-year-old Kurt Thomas there Friday against Chicago.

The Knicks remain without veteran Rasheed Wallace, also with a left foot injury, and Amare Stoudemire is playing restricted minutes in his return from left knee surgery.
