Wallace to start vs. Hawks

Brooklyn Nets small forward Gerald Wallace will start on Friday night against the Atlanta Hawks.

Wallace came off the bench on Wednesday night after missing the previous two games due to bruised ribs.

Interim coach P.J. Carlesimo said the Nets would monitor Wallace’s minutes, but he’ll log more than the 15 he did in his first game back from the injury.

Wallace is averaging 9.6 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game.

Jerry Stackhouse and Tornike Shengelia are inactive.
