Wallace is expected to be sidelined at least a week.

"I felt like I came into this season so prepared and so ready to go," he said. "Then, to have a setback like this is tough for any player, [let] alone for the type of year I was having. It's a minor setback. Hopefully I can bounce back pretty good."

Wallace is averaging 16.2 points a game. Keith Bogans started in his place.

Also, the Bobcats were without guard Jumaine Jones, who returned to Los Angeles to be with his pregnant wife after she went into labor a month early.
