Rasheed Wallace will miss Wednesday's game against the New York Knicks and Friday's road game against Toronto with a left calf strain. He suffered the injury during the first quarter against Orlando Monday night.
Without him, either Kwame Brown or Amir Johnson will get the start. Brown played 26 solid minutes against the Magic but is most effectively against bigger centers. The Knicks and Raptors have smaller, more athletic frontcourts, which better suit Johnson's style of play.
