BOBCATS: Charlotte forward Gerald Wallace has been suffering from headaches and drowsiness since he was knocked unconscious in a game Friday.


Wallace has been experiencing post-concussion symptoms that include soreness in his neck and jaw, the team said Monday. He's scheduled to be examined by a neurologist this week.

MICHAEL JORDAN: A sentencing mistake is keeping one of the two men convicted of killing Michael Jordan's father from seeking parole, an attorney said Monday.


Larry Martin Demery , 32, was sentenced to life in prison in the July 1993 shooting death of James Jordan , who was sleeping in his car beside a highway when he was killed in Robeson County. Demery also was sentenced to 40 years for a pair of robberies earlier in the month.


Attorney Hugh Rogers said the sentences were to be served concurrently, but the state Department of Correction has incorrectly recorded them as consecutive sentences.

HAWKS WATCH

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME

Atlanta finally returns home after a six-game road trip that concluded late Monday night in San Antonio.

Atlanta was 1-4 on the road trip before Monday's game. The Hawks are 7-20 on the road this season but likely are happy to return to Philips Arena.

They are 15-11 there this season.
