Mavericks F Dirk Nowitzki Expected Out with Achilles Injury, No Timetable for Return

November 30th, 2016

Future Hall of Famer Dirk Nowitzki has played a grand total of five games this season. The veteran is now expected to miss at least the next three games with an Achilles injury, and there's no timetable for his return. At 3-13 on the season, the Mavericks are in no hurry to rush him back. Look for the big man to sit a while.
