Not like he played the first 20 something games anyway....lol

Way I see it. Melo and Tyson can handle most of the minutes at pf and c respectively. Tyson can also play pf, Amare can play both positions as well backing both of them up. But right now Amare isn't going to be really ready for another month or more. He's basically rehabbing on the court.
But the old heads of Rasheed/KT/ Camby are basically 3 guys filling one role as a guy that gives important minutes inside defensively and maybe offensively for about 15 minutes. KT is really your 3rd option out of those 3, but Camby and Sheeds minutes have been crucial this year and we need at least one of them to be in the lineup consistently...at least until Amare can give you an effective 30 minutes a night if needed. And in the playoffs can give you critical minutes if there are injuries, foul trouble...whatever.
Kenyon I think can fill those void. I never thought they'd need him after signing Sheed couldn't picture a situation where Amare would be a shell, and Camby/Sheed are both essentially out indefinitely and that's been the case all year. Adding one more guy that gives you similar minutes is a great thing. He's also a good screen and roll player.

I believe this condition that Camby has is going to make him retire or become essentially useless. I've been reading up on it and it seems like a condition that will never permanently go away.
When I heard Camby say in an interview a week or so ago that he received a cortizone shot and he felt great, I was immediately concerned. Everybody knows that a cortizone shot just numbs the pain by easing the inflammation of the affected area and therefore his condition still wasn't healed.
From what I am reading of this condition, proper healing can take anywhere from a few months to years, and even then it's likely to come back. And this is just for normal people, not athletes that are running and jumping up and down a court.
The cure for plantar fasciitis is elusive. One can treat plantar fasciitis and get rid of the pain, but curing the underlying condition may not be possible.
http://suite101.com/article/cure-for...ays-no-a306706Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation disease that causes heel pain and involves the tearing or injury of the fibrous tendons along the bottom of the foot – usually just one foot. As I learned when I had the condition several years ago and when it recently came back with weight gain, treating a chronic plantar fascia injury can successfully be done by following a suite of therapies. But I've also learned there may not be any such thing as a true, permanent cure for plantar fasciitis.
Plantar Fasciitis "Cure?" Or Lifelong Treatment?
With treatment, the heel pain is usually eliminated within nine months, with some cases taking much less time and others taking as long as two years, according to the article "Plantar Fasciitis" by the National Institute of Health's MedLine Plus. However, finding a real, get-rid-of-it-once-and-for-all cure for plantar fasciitis would mean that the underlying cause has been identified and eliminated. That is often not the case, so perhaps the correct terminology would be "successful treatment" rather than "cure."
Chronic Plantar Fasciitis – The Pain That Keeps Coming Back
Plantar fasciitis has a tendency to become chronic, which means it recurs, and that is due to a variety of causes. Unfortunately, reinjury during the healing process is common and leads to a delay in healing. Too, the underlying pathology may involve the permanent loss of collagen fibers, as researchers report in an article entitled "Common Foot Disorders" in the May 2005 issue of Clinical Medicine & Research.
Essentially, patients with heel pain caused by plantar fasciitis should expect it to go away, but should also be prepared for it to recur. Therefore, from a patient's perspective, it seems to me that preventative as well as treatment measures are the best way to approach "curing" plantar fasciitis, or more accurately, to keep it from recurring.
