Brooks to miss Tuesday's game vs. Cavs
By ESPNNewYork.com staff
Brooklyn Nets reserve shooting guard MarShon Brooks will miss his second straight game because of a sprained left ankle, the team announced Monday.
The Nets play host to Cleveland on Tuesday night.
Brooks, who participated in the non-contact portion of Monday's practice, injured his ankle during the shootaround prior to Friday night's victory in Orlando.
Starting small forward Gerald Wallace practiced to tolerance Monday, according to the team, but is doubtful to play. He has missed four games because of a sprained left ankle.
Wallace has been out since originally suffering the injury late in Brooklyn's season-opening win over Toronto.
Nets coach Avery Johnson has said he wants to see Wallace get through a full practice and then recover before inserting him into a game.
