Rasheed Wallace expected to play

Just in case you were wondering, Rasheed Wallace will be playing through his sprained ankle tonight. From the Free Press:

"I know I'm not going to be 100%, but I know I'll be good enough to go out there and run up the court," he said.

Wallace didn't practice with the team Tuesday after he suffered a sprained right ankle in the second quarter of Monday's loss. Instead, he worked with strength and conditioning coach Arnie Kander, doing some light jogging, sprints and some "workout stuff" as Wallace put it.

And while Wallace is a game-time decision, coach Flip Saunders sounded hopeful.

"He's pretty active today," Saunders said, "so I'd be more optimistic of him playing than not playing."
