A complete history of Rajon Rondo pissing off his coaches

Tuesday's spat with Rick Carlisle is far from the first time. Rajon Rondo's done it again. See, his yelling match in Tuesday's home win against Toronto and his subsequent one-game suspension for "conduct detrimental to the team" which he served Wednesday is far, far from the first time Rondo and a head coach have got into a dispute. In fact, that's kind of his thing. He's a basketball genius who understands the game as well as anyone in the league. One of his passes on Tuesday prior to the benching even caught the ever-reliable Tyson Chandler by surprise. He can find passing angles others...

Mavericks are basically sitting everyone against Hawks

Welp. It's a shame for the Mavericks this game wasn't postponed due to weather. They'll go ahead and sit most of their veterans for this game. Chandler Parsons is still out with an ankle injury and Rajon Rondo was suspended Wednesday afternoon for "conduct detrimental to the team." The Mavericks have now announced that Amar'e Stoudemire will sit due to rest and Tyson Chandler will not play with a hip contusion. Dirk Nowitzki has not been ruled out yet, but it doesn't make much sense for him to play. We'll update this post if news does come out that he is sitting. Monta Ellis is the lone...

Tyson (hip), Amar'e (rest) out vs. Hawks

ATLANTA -- The Dallas Mavericks will not have their top two centers Wednesday night against the Atlanta Hawks. Starter Tyson Chandler will not play due to a right hip contusion suffered when he took a hard charge from Toronto power forward Amir Johnson late in Tuesday's win over the Raptors. Reserve Amar'e Stoudemire, who has chronic knee problems, will rest as a precaution on the second night of a back-to-back. The Mavs are also missing point guard Rajon Rondo (suspension) and small forward Chandler Parsons (left ankle).

Tyson Chandler hurts hip in win

DALLAS -- Mavericks center Tyson Chandler left the American Airlines Center with a pronounced limp Tuesday night. Chandler injured his hip when he took a charge from Toronto power forward Amir Johnson with 1:16 remaining in the Mavs’ 99-92 win. Chandler was in obvious pain and exited the game for good with 51 seconds remaining. “I'm a little banged up,” Chandler said. “I got hit in my hip flexor. I've got that and other lingering things.

Bad signs were everywhere in blowout loss to Oklahoma City

The Dallas Mavericks weren’t happy with the way they returned from the All-Star break. Not just because they lost big against Oklahoma City. It’s the way they lost. Tyson Chandler didn’t like the effort. Dirk Nowitzki didn’t like the lack …

Larry Sanders could join the Mavericks but probably won't

There's some mutual interest, but it's a long shot. Larry Sanders may soon be a free agent when the Bucks finalize a buy out agreement, and the Mavericks have "cautious" interest, according to ESPN Dallas' Tim MacMahon. It's easy to see why. Dallas has been desperate for big man depth and even after signing Amar'e Stoudemire would love to add a solid center behind Tyson Chandler. Two years ago, Sanders was one of the best centers in the league, earning the moniker LARRY SANDERS! for his constant play making ability. His career has tumbled since then because of injuries, suspensions and a...

Gameday: Dallas Mavericks vs. Utah Jazz

The Mavericks, sans Tyson Chandler and possibly Monta Ellis too, will go for a third win against the young Jazz days before the All-Star break. The Jazz, sitting at 19-33, are the kind of team the Mavericks (35-19) have had consistent success against this season. Dallas is 22-4 against teams with below .500 records in 2014-2015. But with three starters injured, the Mavs will probably feel fortunate to get to All-Star weekend with another win tonight. Defensive stalwart Tyson Chandler is out with an injured ankle and shooting guard Monta Ellis is doubtful with a hurt hip. Point...

Mavericks injury update: Tyson Chandler out, Monta Ellis doubtful

Dallas may be missing three starters on Wednesday. Tyson Chandler will not play against the Utah Jazz on Wednesday while Monta Ellis is doubtful, Rick Carlisle said in Tuesday practice, per Eddie Sefko. With Rajon Rondo still out with facial fractures, the Mavericks could roll into their final game before the All-Star break missing three starters. Chandler and Ellis were both in the locker room within four minutes of Monday's game against the Clippers -- Chandler with a sprained left ankle and Ellis with a hip problem.

Quoteboard for Clippers 115, Mavericks 98: "It's hard, but life is hard."

Missing three of their five starters, Dallas falls to Los Angeles. Injuries to both Monta Ellis and Tyson Chandler early in the game Rick Carlisle: "We don't have anything yet. We'll let you know. I don't know what happened [on the injury to Ellis]. There's some kind of strain I'm assuming but I don't have details. Other than to say, I think it might be some kind of strain, there's nothing else we can say." Chandler Parsons: "Obviously it hurt losing two of our main guys and DeAndre (Jordan) played extremely well. He's very active and athletic. Tyson would have been an equalizer on that,...

No Chandler, no Rondo a Dallas D-saster

DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks front office put in a lot of work to build the kind of defense capable of providing hope of a playoff run. The first major step was to bring back big man Tyson Chandler, negotiating a trade with the New York Knicks in June. The next was to make a deal with the Boston Celtics for point guard Rajon Rondo in December. Dallas is a below-average defensive team without Rondo, who hasn't played since suffering a broken nose and left orbital bone on Jan.

Chandler, Ellis injured vs. Clippers

DALLAS -- Two Mavs starters exited due to injuries in the first four minutes of Monday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers. Tyson Chandler sprained his left ankle when he was fouled in the opening minute of the game. He left a couple of possessions later. The team announced his return as doubtful. Ellis limped off the floor during a timeout with 8:03 remaining and immediately headed to the locker room with athletic trainer Casey Smith. The nature of his injury and Ellis' status has yet to be announced.
