WALTHAM, Mass. — A blow to the nose limited Gerald Wallace to less than nine minutes played, a season-low, in Boston's 103-100 win over Cleveland on Saturday.

But Wallace says he will be available for the Celtics in Tuesday afternoon's matchup against the Atlanta Hawks.

"They took precautionary measures," Wallace said. "It's all good though; we got the win."

Wallace said he didn't undergo any kind of extensive testing, the kind that's used in determining whether a player has suffered a concussion.

"Basically I had to talk to the doctors," Wallace told CSNNE.com. "That was as far as what I had to do."

Although Wallace's numbers haven't been great this season, he has provided a much-needed energy boost for the Celtics while playing both forward positions.

"I just go in and do what I can out there," Wallace said. "It's just basketball. Like I said, I'm good to go. I'll be ready to play."
