Gerald Wallace will return soon after spraining his left ankle on Saturday.

Brooklyn Nets small forward Gerald Wallace is day-to-day with an ankle sprain that he suffered in Saturday night's game against the Toronto Raptors.

Brooklyn finally opened up the Barclays Center and did it in grand style, beating their rivals from north of the border, 107-100. However, Wallace was injured when trying to chase down Kyle Lowry. According to The Brooklyn Game, head coach Avery Johnson said the MRI results came back negative on the ankle.

The biggest issue for the Nets right now is finding a player that can fill in at small forward while Wallace recovers. Josh Childress, Wallace's backup, is also out, leaving the team very thin at the position.

Wallace played well against the Raptors before injuring his ankle, collecting 10 points, six rebounds and four assists in 30 minutes of action.

Brooklyn's next game is on Monday against the Minnesota Timberwolves, which Wallace is almost certain to miss.
