Dirk Nowitzki-F - Mavericks
Last Updated: 3 Jan, 10:08 AM
The time is drawing closer for Dirk Nowitzki to be in the Mavericks’ starting lineup.
It probably won’t happen Saturday when New Orleans visits American Airlines Center, but you never know. Most certainly, it’s getting closer on the horizon after Nowitzki knocked in 19 points in under 30 minutes against Miami Wednesday night.
“I’ve worked extremely hard the last couple weeks,” Nowitzki said afterward. “I’m going to keep working and hopefully, I’ll start again maybe here in a week or so and get my minutes up again.”
