Matthews' hamstring, apparently not severe, may only cost him one game

CHICAGO - Wesley Matthews' strained left hamstring is not believed to be as severe as the similar injuries to Devin Harris and Harrison Barnes, which kept them out weeks.Coach Rick Carlisle said after Monday's shootaround that Matthews, who did not make the trip to Chicago, could return Wednesday against Utah."That's the hope," Carlisle said. "We're dealing with Mother Nature, who is temperamental. We figured it would be better not to go through the wear and tear of two flights. So he'll get treatment and hopefully he'll be feeling well enough to play on Wednesday.Barnes missed virtually all...

A stellar rebounding night from somebody not named DeAndre Jordan helped Mavericks end six-game skid

SALT LAKE CITY - It was nearly two hours before the Mavericks' 119-100 win over Washington, a team they always seem to beat (16 of the last 17 meetings), that Rick Carlisle was asked about the early season struggles of Harrison Barnes.And, really, that's unfair. The leading scorer of the last two seasons missed virtually all of training camp. Since his return in the fifth game of the regular season, he's been going through the equivalent of his preseason."He's missed a month and I feel like he's getting very close to being where he needs to be," Carlisle said. "The two practice days (Sunday...

The best player on the roster? Luka Doncic isn't there yet, but he has been this for the Mavericks

Eddie Sefko, Mavericks beat writer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered your questions about the team in a live chat recently. Here are some highlights. Is Luka Doncic the best player on this Mavericks roster?Sefko: Let's just say that he may not be the best player right now, but he's without question the most important player on the roster. He's the future, along with Dennis Smith Jr., as things stand now. DeAndre Jordan, averaging a 14-12 double-double right now, and a healthy Harrison Barnes may be "better" players right now. But maybe not. Doncic appears to be the...

Clearly, it will take time for Barnes and friends to find their identity

Harrison Barnes clearly is having to knock off some rust.His first two games after being sidelined a month with a strained hamstring have left a lot to be desired.Barnes has hit just 8-of-30 shots and is 1-of-9 from 3-point range. He said after his first game that he knows everything is not going to be back to normal overnight.And it's not just Barnes who is having difficulties early in the season.Sunday's 113-104 loss to Utah was the first time the preferred starting lineup has been together. It looked erratic at times.So while coach Rick Carlisle said that Barnes is "without a doubt"...

'You can see the potential': The Mavericks provide tantalizing glimpses of what could be, but how long until it clicks?

On the official first night of the Mavs' future, which took five games to finally realize, it became evident that this could take a little time. Like more than a quarter.Maybe not until after Christmas.Maybe not this season at all.But whenever it all finally comes together, Sunday's 113-104 loss to Utah at American Airlines Center provided a tantalizing-if-teasing glimpse of what's to come eventually.Probably.Dennis Smith Jr. returned to join Harrison Barnes, DeAndre Jordan, Wesley Matthews and Luka Doncic as a starting unit for the first time this season. And after another abysmal first...

Mavericks' moxie became apparent as Harrison Barnes returned, but Dallas hasn't put things together just yet

TORONTO -- It took Harrison Barnes awhile to get his sea legs in his season debut.At least he had an excuse, unlike the rest of his teammates as they fell behind 18-2 before they cleared customs.They eventually got their act together and pushed the potent Toronto Raptors into the fourth quarter, largely because Barnes returned with a solid showing. The Raptors won, 116-107, but that's what they do. They are 6-0 for a reason. And if the Boston Celtics aren't taking the Raps seriously in the Eastern Conference, something is very wrong.Meanwhile, the Mavericks are still waiting to put their...
