Foot injury sidelines Gerald Wallace

Brooklyn Nets small forward Gerald Wallace and shooting guard Joe Johnson both missed Wednesday night's game in Cleveland against the Cavaliers, the team announced.

Wallace was out due to a sore left foot, while Johnson missed his fifth straight game because of a sore left heel.

Neither player practiced Tuesday. The Nets improved to 3-2 in this current stretch without Johnson after beating the Cavaliers 113-95.
