Cavaliers forward/center Ben Wallace left tonight's game at Houston with 6:19 remaining in the third quarter with a fractured right fibula received from a blow to the leg in the second quarter. He was seen by Houston Rockets team physician Dr. Mark Adickes. X-rays taken at the arena confirmed the injury. Wallace will travel with the team to San Antonio. He is currently projected to be out four to six weeks and his status will be updated as appropriate.
Paging Mr. Hickson, Mr. J.J. Hickson, please report to the floor and play some defense.
