MILWAUKEE (AP) -Cavaliers center Ben Wallace had his sore back re-examined Saturday in Cleveland and missed a game at Milwaukee.
Wallace underwent a precautionary MRI. A team spokeswoman said the results were negative and that Wallace would be treated for back spasms and is day-to-day.
Wallace left Friday night's 90-83 victory over the Toronto Raptors in the third quarter with back spasms and didn't return. He missed a game March 12 with the same problem.
He was acquired along with Joe Smith from the Chicago Bulls on Feb. 21 in a multiplayer trade that also included the Seattle SuperSonics.
He is averaging eight rebounds and five points in 14 games with Cleveland.
