Rasheed Wallace will play on Thursday

From Keith Langlois at

"Rasheed looked good. He went the whole practice, had no problems," Flip Saunders said after the Pistons went through a light practice before traveling to Cleveland ... "Worked up a good sweat, participated in all the live drills. Moving good – moving better than he did before he went down. I think the work he did with (strength coach) Arnie (Kander) seemed to help."

Saunders said that he’ll limit the minutes of Wallace, who did not speak to reporters but was his usual boisterous self during practice and joked with teammates afterward, to about 27 or 28. That’s a much easier commitment to honor now that both Dale Davis and Jason Maxiell are providing the Pistons with punch off the bench.

"We won’t take a chance now on him reinjuring that or taking a step back," Saunders said.
