    Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Manages 10 points in blowout loss

    Nowitzki managed 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds and a steal over 24 minutes in Friday's 116-90 loss to the Spurs. The 18-year veteran was one of the few Mavericks players who seemed to show up, with Dallas finding themselves in a 62-26 hole by halftime. Nowitzki near double-doubled during his modest time on the court, before being pulled along with the first unit once things were hopelessly out of reach. The veteran, along with the rest of his teammates, should be able to dust themselves off from the Spurs' ambush and return to their typical level of production.

    Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Scores 28 points Wednesday

    Nowitzki had 28 points (10-21 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 6-7 FT), four rebounds, three blocks, and one assist in 35 minutes during the Mavericks' 93-90 loss to the Heat on Wednesday. Nowitzki had gone the three previous games without making a three-pointer, going 15-of-38 from the field over that same stretch. Nevertheless, Nowitzki responded with a solid showing in a close loss Wednesday. Mavericks' coach Rick Carlisle rests his 37-year-old offensive centerpiece occasionally when he sees fit, but otherwise Nowitzki is still a force to be reckoned with who is consistently put in a good position to succeed.

    Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Will sit out for rest Sunday

    Nowitzki will not play in Sunday's game against the Suns for rest, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports. The Mavericks have been resting Nowitzki during back-to-back games recently and that will be the case again Sunday, as the team takes on the Suns in the first of back-to-back games. With that being said, he should return to the starting lineup come Monday's outing versus the Hawks. When Nowitzki was out on Wednesday, the Mavericks used a small-ball lineup and started the likes of Deron Williams, Raymond Felton, Weslety Matthews, Chandler Parsons and Salah Mejri. They could go with a similar plan of action Sunday, although they may opt to instead use Dwight Powell or Charlie Villanueva at power forward.

    Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Sitting out to rest

    Nowitzki will sit out to rest when the Mavericks face the Warriors on Wednesday night, Mavs play-by-play man Chuck Cooperstein reports. The Mavs have strategically rested Nowitzki at times this season, and he'll rest Wednesday on the second night of a back-to-back. Nowitzki played 30 minutes in Tuesday's two-point victory over the Lakers, hitting the game-winning baseline jumper with just over two seconds remaining. In his absence, Dallas will likely go with Dwight Powell at power forward.

    Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Scores 13 points, hits game-winner Tuesday

    Nowitzki had 13 points (5-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, and one assist in 30 minutes during the Mavericks' 92-90 win versus the Lakers on Tuesday. Nowitzki struggled for the most part on Tuesday, but managed to find the bottom of the net when it mattered most. Post-Christmas, Nowtizki has been shooting only 39 percent from the field. However, it's reasonable to expect him to break out of this slump in the near future.

    Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Scores 19 in loss

    Nowitzki scored 19 points Sunday on 7-of-13 shooting, including 4-of-6 from three-point range. He added three rebounds in the loss to Houston. Nowitzki was a question mark as he continues to battle swelling on his right knee but played 27 minutes. The Mavericks play four games in the upcoming week, including a road back-to-back on Tuesday and Wednesday, and it will be interesting to see if Dallas opts to play him in both games.

    Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Upgraded to probable

    Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Questionable to play Sunday

    Nowitzki is questionable to play Sunday versus the Rockets due to issues with his right knee, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports. Dirk sat out of of Wednesday's game due to his knee, but returned to action Friday versus the Thunder. He posted 14 points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks, and two threes in 29 minutes during that outing. He is day-to-day for now, and a true game-time decision Sunday. If he cannot go, expect Charlie Villanueva to replace him in the starting lineup.

    Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Scores 14 points Friday

    Nowitzki (knee) had 14 points (6-15 FG, 2-8 3Pt), two rebounds, two blocks, one assist, and one steal in 29 minutes during the Mavericks' 109-106 loss versus the Thunder on Friday. Nowitzki's knee inflammation forced him to miss Wednesday's win over the Timberwolves, and the veteran has missed four of the Mavericks' 45 games to date this season. However, the 37-year-old doesn't have many off nights from the field, and he will likely bounce back on Sunday against a porous Rockets defense.
