Dirk Nowitzki out, Mavs playoffs hang by thread

by james on March 25th, 2008

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

The sweet J of Dirk Nowitzki will be missed

Dirk Nowitzki update.

Nowitzki met with reporters for about 10 minutes Monday to discuss the leg injury he sustained the previous day. He said he feels fortunate it’s only a moderate high-ankle sprain and a mildly sprained knee and he hopes to be back in a week or two.

But he also realizes it could be longer and the Mavericks might miss the playoffs without him.

“This is probably the most painful time to miss games,” Nowitzki said. “That’s very discouraging.”


Yesterday you were told of Dirk’s leg injury and that on Monday we would know more. Well, the news was not good and neither are the Maverick’s playoff chances.

Hard to imagine not watching a Maverick-Spurs Tim Duncan battle or missing a Dallas-Phoenix Steve Nash shootout in the playoffs, but the West is just stacked with good teams.

Western Conference
Team GB
1. * New Orleans —
2. * LA Lakers -0.5
3. Houston 0.5
4. * Utah 2.5
5. Phoenix 1.0
6. San Antonio 1.0
7. Dallas 4.0
8. Golden State 5.0
9. Denver 5.5


Dirk is just too much of the Dallas team. Can Jason Kidd turn it on and save them?

NBA Basketball Fan Question Can Dallas stay in the race until Dirk Nowitzki comes back?
