Free agent center Marcus Camby told FOX 26 Sports he is rehabilitating his left foot after undergoing surgery to repair a torn plantar fascia and remains on target to return in 2014 for his 18th season in the NBA.
"That's my plan," Camby said in a text message to FOX 26 Sports.
After he was waived by the Houston Rockets in October, Camby underwent the procedure and believes he'll be able to return to the court next month.
"I'm doing good," Camby said. "I'm able to jog on a treadmill now. So just still in therapy.
"Hoping in another month or so to start back on the court."
Camby said after he was waived by the Rockets he hoped to be able to return to his hometown team this season and that is still the case.
"(My) preference is to stay home," said Camby, who lives in Pearland.
Camby, who played for the Rockets during the 2011-12 season, was the NBA Defensive Player of the Year in 2007 and has averaged 9.5 points, 9.8 rebounds and 2.4 blocks a game during his career.
