The Nets announced Monday morning that Gerald Wallace will miss Monday night's game vs. Minnesota, and that Keith Bogans will start in Wallace's place.

Wallace sprained his left ankle when he landed on Toronto's Kyle Lowry in the final minute of Saturday's win over the Raptors. The Nets, who visit Miami on Wednesday and Orlando on Friday, say that Wallace will be reevaluated later in the week. Josh Childress is also out Monday night.

Bogans only played the final 28 seconds of Saturday's game.

"It means somebody else has to step up, the All-Star point guard said. Well definitely miss him tonight. Hes a big part of our team. It just means somebody is going to have to come in and fill in for him, step up and make plays.
