Wallace's elbow better; Additional discipline for Jackson?
The good news for the Charlotte Bobcats Monday: Forward Gerald Wallace's bruised left elbow was well enough that he practiced free throws and thinks there's a good chance he'll play Wednesday in New Orleans.
The bad news: Shooting guard Stephen Jackson anticipates additional discipline from the league, after he was ejected in the first quarter in Milwaukee. Jackson now has six technical fouls -- tied with Orlando's Dwight Howard for most in the league this season -- and was fined $50,000 earlier this season for berating referees following a road loss to the Detroit Pistons.
I spoke with Jackson about his growing tech total and with coach Larry Brown, who said Jackson's T's are hurting the team. Plenty more on that later today on the web site and in tomorrow's Observer.
Two more quck notes off practice:
Starting point guard D.J. Augustin missed practice with the flu.
Shooting guard Gerald Henderson is at Duke, getting a second opinion on the soreness in his left knee that has kept him out the past several games.
If Jack gets suspended I say we start Boris at the 2 and Tyrus at the 4. Btw, I bet Stern doesn't have the balls to treat Dwight Howard the same way he's treating Jack.
