Injuries, Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks, nba, atbnews
Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki said Monday that he is getting closer to returning from a sore right Achilles. Nowitzki missed his fourth straight game with the Mavericks’ 93-77 loss to the New York Knicks. He had a lengthy pregame workout, but by then, it was already decided that he wouldn’t play. “The biggest issue is still running,” Nowitzki said after the game. “I’m not a big runner at this stage in my career, but I can’t really go up and down yet. I haven’t run in full practice. So it’s not quite there yet, but the good thing is it’s getting better. I don’t have the soreness I had last week, obviously. I’ll be doing more and more.”
