Blazers F Gerald Wallace Will Start Despite Sprained Finger

Update: Portland Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan told reporters that forward Gerald Wallace will start on Monday night despite a sprained finger.

The Portland Trail Blazers announced on Monday that forward Gerald Wallace is listed as "probable" for Monday night's game against the Sacramento Kings due to a sprained finger. Wallace did participate in morning shootaround, according to coach Nate McMillan.

The injury caused Wallace to sit out a Saturday night game against the Detroit Pistons, although he told Joe Freeman of The Oregonian after the game that he was available and wanted to play. Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com reports that Wallace was not available for comment after shootaround.

Blazers forward Nicolas Batum started in place of Wallace on Saturday and would do so again if Wallace doesn't play.
