Nowitzki joins Mavs’ long injury list with right knee bruise

🕐 1 min read

DALLAS (AP) – Add Dirk Nowitzki to the Dallas Mavericks’ long injury list.

Coach Rick Carlisle said Tuesday that Nowitzki bruised his right knee when he fell early in the Mavericks’ 85-84 Game 2 win over Oklahoma City in a first-round playoff series that is tied 1-1.

Nowitzki joins a list of players who might miss Game 3 on Thursday, including starting guards Deron Williams and J.J. Barea and backup forward David Lee.

Williams is dealing with a sports hernia injury that will require offseason surgery. He had an effective first half in Game 2 on Monday but left in the third quarter and didn’t return. Barea (right groin strain) missed Game 2, and Lee has yet to play in the series because of a right heel injury.
