CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charlotte Bobcats forward Gerald Wallace is eyeing a Wednesday return from a left ankle injury that's sidelined him for much of the past month.

Wallace did some light running at practice Sunday. He won't play Monday against Memphis, but coach Paul Silas says the goal is to have him play Wednesday against Chicago.

Charlotte's second-leading scorer at 16.5 points has missed all but two games since Dec. 15 with a sprain and bone bruise.

Center Nazr Mohammed didn't practice Sunday as he recovers from a sore knee, but Silas said it's possible he could return Friday at Boston.
