No Dirk Tonight

Dirk Nowitzki is still nursing his knee and ankle. He won’t play tonight against the Golden State Warriors.

Dirk was at the shootaround today and decided he wasn’t ready to return.

“I’ve got to be pain-free. If I can’t move out there and cut and try to defend and move my feet, it really doesn’t make any sense to try to get out there,” Nowitzki said. “Just hobbling around wouldn’t help anybody. I would rather have somebody out there that can go and give 100 percent.”

Big game tonight. The Mavs and Warriors are trying to make the playoffs. Golden State beat them over the weekend.

The Mavs hold the 7th seed but the Warriors are just one game back. A loss would be very bad.

    Just thought you might want to know why Dirk is able to play tonignt. He is wearing an Ultimate Ankle from Bledsoe Brace Systems. The brace will not let you sprain your ankle. He is coming back from a high ankle sprain in 11 days. That is unheard of, its usually a minimum of 3 to 4 weeks. The ankle brace is truly amazing and is made right here in the Dallas area.
