Bobcats not expecting Wallace back soon

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)—The Charlotte Bobcats don’t expect top scorer Gerald Wallace to return until sometime after this month’s All-Star break as he recovers from a partially collapsed lung and broken rib.

Wallace was somewhere in middle America in a charter bus on Wednesday while coach Larry Brown put the Bobcats through a 2 1/2 -hour practice. Wallace was finally cleared to leave Los Angeles following his injuries against the Lakers on Jan. 27, but won’t be cleared to fly until at least Feb. 11.

Wallace, who left Tuesday on the 2,400-mile trip, was expected to arrive in Charlotte late Wednesday or early Thursday.

Brown said Wallace hasn’t been able to do any physical activity and didn’t expect him back for at least two weeks—and it could be much longer.

“We’ll just have to see how he’s feeling,” Brown said.

If we can win games without Wallace, we're a better team for it.

But this severly hurts our playoff aspirations.

That's a real bummer, It's going to be hard now to make the playoff's with him missing almost if not a full month or games.
