Amar'e Stoudemire's hand is healed, but his knee remains a problem for the Knicks.

With his first training camp as head coach of the Knicks, Mike Woodson dreamed of a smooth month of blending his rebuilt squad, teaching his defensive principals and getting all of the pieces in place to challenge the Miami Heat.

But those best-laid plans collapsed under the reality of age and injury.

The Knicks never got Marcus Camby on the court in the preseason. They saw Amar'e Stoudemire lost to another frustrating injury. J.R. Smith spent more time in a walking boot than he did in game action, and Tyson Chandler was on crutches the last time we saw him.

This is the reality of any camp, but especially true when you assemble a team that is the oldest in NBA history—averaging more than 32-years-old and boasting four of the six oldest players currently in the league.

The Knicks are old. They are going to be injured. And they are going to have to revert to getting acclimated to Woodson in season when—if—they get all the pieces in place.
