 CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -Charlotte Bobcats forward Gerald Wallace is leaning toward sitting out the last week of the season due to a groin injury.
An MRI exam on Tuesday showed no tear, but Wallace missed his second straight game against Minnesota. With the Bobcats eliminated from playoff contention, Wallace said he'll likely not play again this season.
``If I play, there's a risk of me having the injury throughout the whole summer,'' Wallace said. ``I don't want to go through the whole summer with a groin injury.''
Wallace aggravated the injury in Friday's win over Toronto and missed Saturday's loss to Boston.
``It started out on my left side and kind of moved to the right and into my abdomen area,'' Wallace said. ``It's painful, and the other day I couldn't even ride a bicycle with my daughter.''
Bobcats coach Sam Vincent said they'll be cautious with Wallace, who is averaging 19.4 points and 6.0 rebounds a game.
``We're going to treat that very gingerly and very cautiously,'' Vincent said. ``If he feels that it's not improving through the rehabilitation and it's actually getting worse, then of course the best thing to do is to give it the proper rest and get him charged up and ready for next season.''
Wallace, who signed a six-year, $57 million deal with Charlotte last summer, has had a frustrating couple of months. He was knocked unconscious with an inadvertent elbow in a game against Sacramento on Feb. 22. His fourth concussion in four seasons forced him to miss eight games.
He suffered the groin injury shortly after returning and kept aggravating the injury as the Bobcats fell out of the playoff picture.
``It's just one of those things, where if it really counted I could probably suck it up and go out there and play,'' Wallace said. ``But at this point of the season, there's really no reason right now.''
