The Knicks will have Rasheed Wallace tonight after he missed Sunday’s game with a sore left foot. Wallace said he just re-aggravated an old injury in Chicago Saturday. Here’s a little more of Rasheed for you all to enjoy:

What did you think of playing in the Barclays Center last month?

Wallace: “You all still trying to make a rivalry out of it. It’s not a rivalry yet. Atmosphere is like any other NBA arena. They’re cheering for that home team. I say with the fans there it’s about 50/50 or 60/40. It’s a lot of New York Knicks fans there. Of course, they got their Brooklyn fans.

Does it almost feel like a home game because you shoot at your place?

Wallace: “For the most part it is, except for that long-[***] bus ride over there. Other than that it’s cool. It’s cool.”

We'll end it there.

Mike Woodson said Carmelo Anthony’s lacerated left-middle finger is fine. He looked good down the stretch of the Denver game Sunday.

“He hasn’t complained about it once,” Woodson said. “He didn’t say much after the game the other night. I think he's kind of over the hump in terms of his finger and it's in the healing mode. I think he’s OK.”
