Gerald Wallace out, Deron Williams questionable, Kris Humphries game-time. Paul George may be out as well

Lots of work for Tim Walsh as Nets prepare for Pacers

Gerald Wallace will be out Sunday and probably for an extended amount of time with bruised ribs; Deron Williams is questionable with a contusion in his right thigh and Kris Humphries (sore left ankle) is a game-time decision. Jerry Stackhouse (sore left hamstring) and Mirza Teletovic (illness) are probable.

But on the other side of the court, the Pacers could be without their best player. Paul George is already out of Saturday night's game in Indiana. The Pacers spokesman tweeted Saturday, "Paul George will miss tonight's Pacers game vs. Bobcats with the flu. It is hopes he will join the team Sunday in Brooklyn"

Wallace was hurt midway through the first quarter of the Suns game, getting tangle up with P.J. Tucker on a breakaway dunk attempt. Williams was hurt early in the third and the team said then his return was questionable. He did return, then left the game and the court with 4:06 left.

Humphries has missed seven of the last ten games, his latest injury coming at the end of the Thunder game, where he played well. After sitting two games due to a sprained left ankle he returned Tuesday and played 10 minutes (two points, three rebounds) vs. the Sixers, then didn't play Friday.

Humphries has been involved in a lot of trade speculation, heightened by Avery Johnson's comment that he thought he was going to a discussion of post-January 15 personnel moves when he was fired. Humphries can be traded starting Wednesday, January 15.
