The Houston Rockets reduced their roster to 15 players Monday by waiving veteran center Marcus Camby and guard Reggie Williams.

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 Houston Chronicle.

Camby, 39, is likely to have foot surgery to repair the damage.

Camby averaged 1.8 points and 2.3 rebounds while playing 24 games for the New York Knicks last season, which was his 17th in the NBA.

For his career, Camby has averaged 9.5 points, 9.8 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game for the Toronto Raptors, New York Knicks, Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles Clippers, Portland Trail Blazers and Rockets.

Williams averaged 3.7 points in 9.5 minutes last season with the Charlotte Bobcats. He also played for the Golden State Warriors (2009-11). He joined the Bobcats in 2011.
