Mavs F Dirk Nowitzki gives update on the status of his left ankle after surgery

Mavs F Dirk Nowitzki gives update on the status of his left ankle after surgery

Dirk Nowitzki knows the reality when it comes to his left ankle and pretty much the rest of his body, too."The foot is not great," he said Sunday. "That's obvious after 20 years in the league. I got arthritis in every joint I have in the body, which is normal I guess after 20 years. But they corrected that one area that was bothering me all season and hopefully it'll be a lot better next season."Nowitzki, J.J. Barea and Wesley Matthews made appearances Sunday at the Festival de los Mavs at Gilley's on the south side of downtown, and the No. 6 scorer in NBA history gave an update of his left...

Wesley Matthews sheds a little light on his contract situation

Wesley Matthews had a light moment at Sunday's Festival de los Mavs, but it also shed a little more light on his intentions for next season.Asked when the opt-in date for the final year of his contract is, the Mavericks' shooting guard said:"I don't really know. I guess I ought to check on that. But I don't plan on being anywhere else."The Mavericks don't plan on him being anywhere else, either, although nobody can ever be certain about anything in the NBA when it comes to roster spots.But Matthews seemed very optimistic that he will be back with the team next season, particularly because of...

Doug McDermott hopes to remain a Maverick; Wesley Matthews says he has 'no plans on going anywhere'

Doug McDermott hopes to remain a Maverick; Wesley Matthews says he has 'no plans on going anywhere'

Doug McDermott came to the Mavericks on Feb. 8 as part of the three-team trade that sent Devin Harris to Denver.In 26 games with the Mavericks, McDermott made 39 of 79 3-point attempts (49.4 percent). He made $3.2 million this season, and it would seem to be a no-brainer for the Mavericks to extend the restricted free agent-to-be the $4.5 million qualifying offer and do everything they can to keep him."I hope so," said McDermott, who has played on four teams in three NBA seasons. "I loved my time here. I feel like I fit in right from the first game, and it just allowed me to be myself out...

Why you shouldn't 'think big this summer' when it comes to trades with the Mavs

Why you shouldn't 'think big this summer' when it comes to trades with the Mavs

Eddie Sefko, Mavericks beat writer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered your questions about the team during a live chat recently. Here are some highlights. Question: Which Mav is mostly likely to be traded this offseason, and what could Dallas get?Sefko: I'd say the two most likely candidates are Wesley Matthews and Nerlens Noel, although Noel would have to be a sign-and-trade since he's headed into free agency. It's already been obvious that you won't get a first-round pick for those guys. The best you could expect is a solid veteran player who probably has a large...
