Walsh will return to MSG on Wednesday

Knicks president and GM Donnie Walsh will watch his team play in person on Wednesday night for the first time since undergoing hip surgery in mid November.

Walsh has been watching Knicks games from his living room since he underwent surgery on his right hip. He was been watching practices at the team’s facility in Greenburgh for a few weeks but hasn’t been to the Garden since the Knicks' loss to the Rockets on Nov. 14.

Walsh has used the assistance of a walker to get around since the surgery.

“You don’t have the same atmosphere when you’re sitting in your living room,” he said on Tuesday. “When you’re not playing well it’s prpobabyl better, but yea I enjoy going to the Garden.”

He said last week that his rehabilitation is going well. Walsh also addressed a AOL Fanhouse report that said the Knicks stated the Knicks talked to the Magic about dealing Ronny Turiaf to Orlando for former Knicks point guard Chris Duhon.

“I haven’t talked to anybody in Orlando about anything since they made that trade (on Saturday),” Walsh said.
