Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Sidelined next two games
Nowitzki (Achilles) will miss at least the next two games, Tim MacMahon of ESPN reports.
Nowitzki has missed a total of 11 games while dealing with his Achilles strain and is now expected to miss another two. The 38-year-old was able to make appearances in two games after missing eight straight, although he was held back with a strict minutes cap in his return. In Nowitzki's absence, Dorian Finney-Smith has been replacing him in the starting lineup and could continue to do so against the Spurs on Tuesday and the Hornets on Thursday.
