Wallace has career averages of 13 points, six rebounds and two assists per game in his 11 year career while shooting 47 percent from the field.? Right now, Wallace is averaging career lows in all of these categories and is shooting an abysmal 41 percent.

The year did not start off well for Wallace when he turned his ankle on opening night when the Nets opened Barclays center with a win over the Toronto Raptors.
