Brooklyn Nets fans got a scare near the end of regulation last night when Nets forward Gerald Wallace went down after a chase-down block on Kyle Lowry. After being taken out of the game Wallace received his X-rays on his left ankle which turned out to be negative for any broken bones. Kristie Ackert of the NY Daily News reports that Wallace's status will remain day-to-day with a sprained left ankle.
Wallace, who tried to stay on the court but limped off after Lowry's first of two free throws, was taken for X-ray, which were negative for a broken bone, and diagnosed with a sprain of his left ankle. He is considered day-to-day for Monday's game against the Timberwolves at the Barclay's center.Several beat writers tweeted out the same thing just moments after the game ended. Wallace ended the game with 10 points, six rebounds, four assists, two steals and tons of energy in 30 minutes of play. After being plagued with injuries all of last year, the Nets were hoping that this season did not start off on the same bad note. As of now, it seems as if this is not a serious injury, and Wallace could be ready to play in the Monday's game against the Timberwolves.
