Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki should be good to go for Game 5. Posted by Ben Golliver. dirk-face

DALLAS -- Obviously, it didn't compare to Michael Jordan's "Flu Game," but Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki played very well despite being very sick during Game 4 of the 2011 NBA Finals on Tuesday night.

Nowitzki battled a 100+ degree temperature and was hacking and wheezing during his post-game press conference. Despite the sickness, Nowitzki finished with a team-high 21 points, 11 rebounds and one assist.

After taking it easy on Wednesday, it sounds like he should be good to go for Game 5 on Thursday.

Nowitzki said simply: "I feel great."

"He’s feeling better, which is important," Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said. "That’s a plus for us."

Carlisle said the bumps and bruises wouldn't affect any of his players' availability. "We have a couple of other guys that are banged up. At this point, you play. You have to."

There is one exception: Carlisle said that center Brendan Haywood, who sat out Game 3 and was limited in Game 4 with a right hip flexor injury, will be officially listed as a game-time decision on Thursday night.

As per his custom, Carlisle wouldn't divulge his starting lineup or the members of his active roster until closer to game time.

Dirk Nowitzki over illness, good to go for Game 5

LBJ is  good player...he will be considered a great player when 1st) shows up for big games with the big boys as a team member 2) he wins at least one title...until then he is just an overgrown kid...still think th Heat will win but James has made it must too difficult. Wade is playing his butt off and James just checked out...checked out...what is he shopping or something? Just play the game LBJ and stop thinking...

Uh Crunch time, maybe all that chowda has given u some type of dementia. We keep hearing about MJ because idiots keep on comparing LBJ to him. Do you see MJ making any comments? Lets get this straight he won 6 nba titles and won the finals MVP every time. He didnt have a Mchale a Parish or even a Dennis Johnson. He had a Scottie Pippen who was a great defender and we all know what happened to Scottie when MJ went to play baseball, the only reason he doesnt have 8 titles. Wake up and smell the freakin lobstah u moron.

Great post man, agree with everything. Especially the FACT that Lebron has been well below his average the past three games, NOT just game 4. He has scored 20, 17 and 8.  So I am not sure why the media is jumping over this upcoming game warning that Lebron will pour out a 40 point performance. He is very capable, but who knows. He's failed in 3 games in a row. Go Mavs. . . Hey Lebron- your elbow still hurting from the Boston series, or is it this trip out WEST that has got in your head ?

Clearly you have only been watching games through your Heat Goggles, here are some more "facts".

FACT #1  Dallas has been behind by 10+ points multiple through the entire playoffs.  Portland, LA and OKC all had leads on this team and somehow they are in the Finals.  If you had been watching, you would have recognized this trend already.

FACT #2  The series is tied 2-2, LBJ has had the opportunity to shut everyone up twice now and has decided to take a wait-and-see approach instead.  He waits to see if Wade can do everything and sees the Mavericks win.

FACT #3  The more I hate the Heat, the more I hate the Heat.  We all don't grow to love teams just because they win.  The Cowboys won all the time in the 90's and I still hate them and cheer everytime they lose.  I am pretty sure the Yankees have won the WS 27 times and I don't love them anymore I do the Cowboys.  Yes, the media will fawn all over the Heat if they do win, but the media do not decide popularity for the rest of us.  Heat = Hate, you can thank LeBron for that.

FACT #4  The Heat did have a 4 and a 5 game losing streak this year, so they are capable of losing a couple of games in a row.  This team is not impervious, Bosh and LBJ have to do more than make an appearance to give this team a chance.  Wade is great, but the Heat supporting cast cannot compete with the Mavericks.  If Bosh and James continue to play at such a low level, you'll be waiting til next year to tell us the dynasty has started.

I don't want the Heat to win, but I am not saying they won't.  Your delusional rant needed to be addressed.  Mavericks aren't the Cavs, and Dirk has yet to be stopped when it counts, otherwise the Heat would be done with the series by now.  If Dallas wins tonight, then Mavs in 7, if not, the title belongs to the Heat.
