Baaad breaking news for the Dallas Mavericks just hit the basketball wires – after lots of rumors and worry about his knee, it looks like Dirk Nowitzki is going to miss significant time.
Chris Sheridan just tweeted the following:
BREAKING NEWS: #Mavericks announce Dirk has scope on right knee, out 6 weeks #NBA
Other reports have already speculated that he will likely be out longer than six weeks, which means a Dirk-less Mavs squad for more than 20 games to start the season. It looks like the offensive burden falls on O.J. Mayo and Elton Brand … what could possibly go wrong?
