Ben Wallace Out Two Months, Maybe More (Maybe Less)

Really bad news for the Cavs and Big Ben (though the length of his time away from the court depends on which reporter you want to believe): “Center Ben Wallace will be out 8-10 weeks after suffering a fractured right fibula in the first half of Thursday’s 93-74 Rockets victory over the Cavaliers in Toyota Center. Wallace will be in a walking boot for the next several weeks, though he said he hoped he could return to the lineup before the playoffs begin in April. The break will not require surgery and an X-ray of the injury showed a small break on the left side of the bone. Wallace will not need screws put in to re-set the bone; if that happened, he would be out for the rest of the season. ‘It’s broke,’ a calm Wallace said after the game. ‘I saw the X-ray. I know what that little white line means on an X-ray. It’s broke.’”

    Seriously, Ben, don’t do it.

    Wait—that’s my bad. I thought he meant a different white line. Never mind.

    Cavs are probably going to have to settle for the 2 or 3 seed, in that case, and hope Starbury kills the Celtics.

    i co sign doc funk.. lorenzin wright, used to be agressive , in the low post but he was a clipper,
    and now ,he is just on the cavs practice team
    and he plays like it.. i guess wallace wont get that contract extension (no soul glow) just a dry fro…..
