The Brooklyn Nets (4-2) host the Boston Celtics (5-3) on Thursday night in an Atlantic Division clash, but will do so without Gerald "Crash" Wallace and MarShon Brooks. Via the team's official twitter feed:

Wallace will be missing a sixth consecutive game due to a sprained left ankle, while Brooks has missed three straight games, also with a left ankle sprain. Keith Bogans has started four of the five previous contests that Wallace has missed. Wallace has played in just one game this season for Brooklyn, scoring 10 points and grabbing six rebounds in 30 minutes against the Toronto raptors on Nov. 3.
