Dallas Mavericks center Samuel Dalembert did not practice Friday due to swelling in his left knee, Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
The issue doesn't appear to be anything serious, but it may be a byproduct of him showing up to camp out of shape. The veteran will compete with Zaza Pachulia and JaVale McGee for the starting spot this season.
Dallas Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons (knee) may be sidelined for all seven of the Mavericks' preseason games, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Parsons said prior to training camp that his primary concern was making sure he was fully healthy for opening night, and that objective hasn't changed. The forward isn't believed to have suffered any setbacks in his recovery from microfracture surgery, but he'll need to log at least a few full practices with the Mavericks before getting the green light to see game action.
Dallas Mavericks guard Justin Anderson was quiet in his preseason debut Tuesday against the Denver Nuggets , scoring one point (0-4 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and turning the ball over twice in 22 minutes.
With Wes Matthews expected to be sidelined at the beginning of the season as he recovers from an Achilles tear, Anderson drew the start at shooting guard, but failed to take advantage of the opportunity. Coach Rick Carlisle will likely cycle in a number of players in and out of the starting lineup to see what units mesh best together, so it's certainly not over for Anderson to make his mark. Still, it's probably best to project Anderson for nothing more than a rotational role at shooting guard and small forward until he proves he's a superior option than the likes of Devin Harris , Raymond Felton , J.J. Barea , and Charlie Villanueva .
Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried recorded a double-double in Tuesday's preseason win over the Dallas Mavericks , finishing with 10 points and 10 boards.
Faried missed some practice time last week due to a case of muscle cramps, but he's been on the court for both of the Nuggets' preseason contests.
The 25-year-old showcased some real growth in the second half of last season, averaging 9.2 rebounds, 1.1 steals, one block, and 14.3 points on 51.1 percent shooting after the All-Star break, which should position him to assume a more focal role in the Nuggets' offense in 2015-16.
Dallas Mavericks guard Wesley Matthews (Achilles) will not play in Tuesday's preseason opener, Earl Sneed of Mavs.com reports.
As expected, Matthews will remain out as he continues to work back from a torn Achilles. While Matthews has maintained that being ready for opening night is a realistic goal, coach Rick Carlisle has been less optimistic, though he has not ruled out the possibility.
