Rasheed Wallace has a tender ankle

The Pistons revealed today that Rasheed Wallace is dealing with a tender right ankle. From A. Sherrod Blakely's blog:

Pistons coach Flip Saunders revealed on Thursday the ankle has been bothering him for some time, which for those of us who cover the team on a daily basis, helps explain why he hasn't seemed like himself lately.

It's to the point where Saunders said if Detroit had a game today, Wallace would not have been able to play. And now his left knee is somewhat sore because he was over-compensating due to the right ankle injury.

He'll probably play Saturday against New Jersey, but I suspect Wallace's minutes will be cut back some in the coming games which probably means more minutes for Nazr Mohammed and Dale Davis.
