The Houston Rockets will waive 39-year-old center Marcus Camby, the Houston Chronicle reported Sunday.

That probably will mark the end of Camby's playing career as he has been unable to make a satisfactory recovery from torn plantar fascia tissue. However, he may remain with the Rockets in a coaching or player development role, according to the report.

Camby is likely to have foot surgery to repair the damage.
