Tyson Chandler and Kenyon Martin were out of the lineup Sunday and won’t travel with the team today to Charlotte for the final road game of the season. But coach Mike Woodson said the pair definitely will be ready for the start of the postseason.

More surprising, Rasheed Wallace is likely to be there, too. And he could be on the court tonight.

"He ran [Saturday], the last few days, so he’s getting there," Woodson said of Wallace. "He still has a ways to go. But the fact that he’s out there running [is a positive sign]. After [Sunday’s] workout, if he checks out OK [today], we’ll see. And if he doesn’t, then we’ve got another day to prepare for the Atlanta game [Wednesday], and if not, for sure the playoffs."

Wallace has not played since Dec. 13, sidelined with a fractured left foot. But he’s been shooting before games and has added running. Woodson said if Wallace has to jump into the postseason without a game to shake off the rust, he’d worry less about him than a younger player.

"I think he’ll be fine," Woodson said. "You just can’t play him big minutes. But I think anything from 10 to 15 minutes. Rasheed being on the floor would be a positive for our ballclub."
