CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Charlotte Bobcats forward Gerald Wallace is questionable for Wednesday's game against Miami with a sprained left ankle.

Wallace didn't practice on Tuesday, a day after he was injured in the fourth quarter against Sacramento. Wallace returned late in the game and finished with 28 points in the Bobcats' fifth straight win.

Coach Larry Brown said Wallace, averaging 18.5 points and 11.3 rebounds, was feeling better and received treatment while the team practiced.

If Wallace can't play, Brown said he could start Flip Murray at shooting guard and move Stephen Jackson to Wallace's small forward spot.

Center Tyson Chandler did some running on Tuesday, but is still not close to returning from his left foot injury. The Bobcats are 9-3 in his absence.
