Cavaliers center Ben Wallace needed 14 stitches to close a cut in his right forearm after injuring himself over the NBA All-Star break.
The team said Wallace sustained lacerations from glass while
playing catch with a football in Richmond, Va. When he got back to
Cleveland on Monday, Wallace underwent further evaluation at the
Cleveland Clinic and had more pieces of glass removed from his arm
on Tuesday, the Cavs said in a statement.
The Cavaliers listed Wallace as questionable for Wednesday
night's game in Toronto.
Cleveland's best defensive interior player, Wallace is averaging
3.1 points and 6.7 rebounds this season.
