Tracy Morgan was seen Wednesday afternoon being wheeled into a New York City hospital ... and TMZ has learned he might not be ditching the chair anytime soon.
Morgan is still recovering from the horrific car crash back in June when a Walmart truck collided with his van. Sources close to Tracy tell TMZ ... Morgan's injuries stemming from that crash may prevent him from ever walking again without some kind of assistance.
Morgan has been feuding publicly with Walmart after it claimed in legal docs his injuries were due in part to the fact he wasn't wearing his seat belt.
Morgan responded by saying, "My friends and I were doing nothing wrong."

I Wish Evel Dick Stayed In Game
... After HIV Diagnosis
10/1/2014 11:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
One of "Evel Dick" Donato's former "Big Brother" housemates tells TMZ ... she wishes Dick would have STAYED in the BB house after learning he was HIV positive -- but Dick says he didn't have a choice.
Donato -- who won BB in 2007 and then rejoined the cast in 2011 -- left the show very early into Season 13 when he was informed by producers that blood tests showed he had HIV.
We spoke with Rachel Reilly -- who was competing in the house at the time -- who tells us she wishes Donato would have stayed in the game.
"If he had a meeting with everyone it would have been a way to give the disease a voice," Reilly said ... "It's reality TV."
She adds, "I think it's cool he is talking about it 3 years later and I hope this changes people's lives. I think it's brave of him."
We also spoke with Evel Dick on "TMZ Live" moments ago ... who told us he didn't get a choice to stay in the game -- producers told him he had to leave.
But he also says he wasn't ready to go public with the information anyway ... "This was the most shocking news I've ever been told. I needed time to digest."
Donato says it's already destroyed him in one way -- financially.
Driving Under the Influence of ADDERALL
9/30/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Amanda Bynes was under the influence of Adderall when she was arrested for DUI ... sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... but her problems go much deeper than a criminal case.
We've learned the Adderall was prescribed by a doctor and she had taken the drug before getting stopped in Van Nuys Sunday and failing multiple field sobriety tests. She was arrested for DUI.
Adderall is a stimulant and we're told Amanda was "out of it" when she was stopped.
Fact is ... it's no defense to DUI that the drug in question was prescribed -- it's still operating a vehicle while impaired. But Amanda now faces a probation violation -- she's on probation for reckless driving -- and the fact that the drug was prescribed may help her there.
The deeper problem is this ... As TMZ first reported, Amanda has moved out of her parents house and is now living in Orange County. We're told she's smoking a lot of weed and is off her anti-psychotic meds for Schizophrenia and bipolarity.
Amanda's conservatorship ended earlier this month and we're told her parents saw no need to extend it because they believe she's better now, but everyone else in her life feels it was a horrible mistake to let the conservatorship lapse and they fear for Amanda.

Over Anti-Vaccine Views
9/24/2014 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
State Farm has folded like a cheap suit ... pulling the plug on its commercials featuring Rob Schneider ... after health groups trashed him for being anti-vaccine.
The insurance company began running ads last month ... featuring Schneider resurrecting his classic "Richmeister" character from SNL ... to sell insurance.
Several health groups immediately went on a social media campaign ... pointing out that Schneider's views run counter to what they claim are sound health insurance policies.
An anti-Schneider video posted last week pleaded with the company to drop Schneider, saying, "State Farm provides health insurance, and nothing ensures public health more than getting vaccinated."
State Farm bent to the pressure and will 86 the ad.
For his part, Schneider tweeted late Tuesday night, "'If the Freedom of Speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter,' George Washington."
