The NBA has just been more fun with Rasheed Wallace in it. Nobody else is calling Afflalo “Aflac” or getting ejected for yelling “Ball Don’t Lie.”

But for the he will be out Friday night when the Knicks host the Bulls, tweets Ian Begley of ESPNNewYork.com. What’s worse is there is no set return date.

Wallace now will have missed four straight games due to a foot injury, one he missed some time for, came back and then went back on the bench for. He’s not young, this could be a while.

The good news is this means more run for Chris Copeland, who has been a real spark of energy for the Knicks off the bench.
