Marcus Camby expects to be waived by the Houston Rockets

Marcus Camby admits that he expects to be waived by the Houston Rockets but claims that he could make a return for the team at some point this season.

Marcus Camby has admitted that he is expecting to be waived by the Houston Rockets before the start of the season.

The 39-year-old only joined the Rockets in the summer but he will undergo an operation on a foot injury this Friday, which means it is unlikely that he will earn a spot on the team's roster.

"I understand the situation," Camby told KRIV-TV. "They need healthy guys. Once I get healthy you can expect to see me again.

"It's tough. I'm going to try hard to get back out there on the basketball court as quickly as possible. They have been great down here in Houston, and you haven't seen the last of me being down here."

Camby was given the NBA Defensive Player of the Year award in 2007 as a Denver Nuggets player.
