Crash Could Miss Some Time

The Charlotte Bobcats once again proved they are giant killers by beating the Lakers 110 – 117 last night. But they also proved that Gerald Wallace is an injury machine too and he could miss some time…again.

“The Bobcats wasted a nine-point fourth-quarter lead, missing four straight free throws down the stretch. But the real loss might be small forward Gerald Wallace, who suffered a rib injury on a vicious hip-check by Lakers center Andrew Bynum. Bynum’s flagrant foul came as Wallace drove the lane with 2 minutes, eight seconds left in the fourth quarter. Wallace had to be helped to the locker room and didn’t return. Lakers star Kobe Bryant (38 points) hit two quick baskets in the first overtime before fouling out with 39 seconds left while defending Bobcats guard Shannon Brown.”
