Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Planning to return for 21st NBA season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowitzki said Tuesday that he plans to return to the Mavericks next season, Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Nowitzki's season came to an end last week after he underwent minor surgery on his left ankle, but he told reporters Tuesday that he opted to get the surgery in order to be back to full strength in 2018-19. Nowitzki will turn 40 in June, and the Mavs hold a $5 million club option for next season, which they'll likely exercise. Nowitzki started 77 games for the Mavs this season, averaging 24.7 minutes per game, which he translated to 12.0 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists. Assuming the Mavs make some roster improvements over the summer and return to competing for a playoff spot, Nowitzki would likely take on a lesser role in 2018-19.

Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: To undergo season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowitzki (ankle) will undergo minor surgery and miss the final three games of the season, Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Nowitzki had already been ruled out for the Mavericks' final two road games Friday and Sunday, so it looks like the veteran was already trending towards being done for the year. Fortunately, according to the report, the surgery Nowitzki is set to undergo is not very serious and is not expected to have an impact on the big man's decision for the 2018-19 season. In Nowitzki's absence for the final three games, rookie Jonathan Motley, who played 41 minutes Wednesday, could continue to get some additional minutes, but both Harrison Barnes (rest) and Dwight Powell (knee) are expected to return as the team's starting frontcourt for the final stretch.

Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Ruled out for final two road games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle acknowledged following Wednesday's 105-100 loss to the Magic that Nowitzki (ankle) won't join the team for games Friday in Detroit and Sunday in Philadephia, Dwain Price of the Mavericks' official site reports. "[Nowitzki is] obviously not on the trip. There will be more information [Thursday]. That's really all I'm authorized to say at this point."

Nowitzki missed just his second game of the season Wednesday due to a left ankle impingement, and it appears the issue is significant enough to keep him unavailable for the Mavericks' final two road contests. At this point, the only question that remains regarding Nowitzki's status for the rest of the season is whether or not he'll suit up in the team's finale Tuesday in Dallas against the Suns. While Nowitzki, Nerlens Noel (suspension), Harrison Barnes (rest) and Dwight Powell (knee) were all sidelined Wednesday and Salah Mejri was limited to just one minute due to a knee injury, Johnathan Motley (41 minutes) and Dorian Finney-Smith (35 minutes) received by far their largest workloads of the season. Powell and Barnes should at least be back for Friday's game, which should offer some reinforcement to the frontcourt.

Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Not with team Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowitzki didn't travel with the Mavericks to Orlando and won't play in Wednesday's game against the Magic due to a left ankle impingement, Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Wednesday marks the start of a three-game road trip for the Mavericks, and given the team's status as a non-contender, it wouldn't be surprising if Nowitzki didn't join the team or games in Detroit on Friday and in Philadelphia on Sunday. It's more likely, however, that Nowitzki would be available for the Mavericks' season and home finale April 10 against the Suns, though he would presumably be restricted to around the 24.7 minutes per game he's averaged in his 77 appearances in 2018-19. The Mavericks should provide an update on Nowitzki's status for Friday as that game draws nearer, but at this point, fantasy owners are probably best off looking at other frontcourt options for the final handful of games. The absences of Nowitzki and Nerlens Noel (suspension) should open up more playing time down low for the likes of Dwight Powell, Maxi Kleber and Johnathan Motley.

Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Good to go Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowitzki (ankle) has been cleared to play and will start as usual in Tuesday's tilt with the Trail Blazers, Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Nowitzki came into Tuesday with a questionable designation, but after testing out his ankle during pregame warmups, feels healthy enough to take the court. The Mavericks are heading into a back-to-back set, so it's possible Nowitzki is limited Tuesday or held out of Wednesday's contest entirely.
