Parsons passes test, but Pacers top Mavs

INDIANAPOLIS -- Can Chandler Parsons be a primary focal point of the offense? You won’t hear anyone from the Dallas Mavericks front office or coaching staff wonder that aloud while leading scorer Monta Ellis recovers from a right-calf injury that caused his streak of 237 games to be snapped Sunday. This certainly isn’t a scenario that any of the Dallas decision-makers wanted to see unfold at this point of the season. Nevertheless, Ellis’ injury provides the Mavs’ brain trust the opportunity to see how Parsons handles the responsibilities of having the ball in his hands on a regular...

Carlisle: Ellis 'very doubtful' vs. Pacers

Shooting guard Monta Ellis' streak of 237 consecutive games played appears to have ended, but the Dallas Mavericks do not believe the right calf injury their leading scorer suffered in Friday night’s loss to the San Antonio Spurs is serious. The Mavs do not anticipate Ellis being available for Sunday’s road games against the Indiana Pacers. “He’s on crutches, which is never good,” coach Rick Carlisle told reporters Saturday morning in San Antonio.

Mavs lose Monta Ellis, life in offense

SAN ANTONIO -- The Dallas Mavericks can deal with a 94-76 loss to the San Antonio Spurs in which they battled but couldn’t buy a bucket for extended stretches. A significant injury to shooting guard Monta Ellis would be a heck of a lot harder to stomach. The Mavs aren’t certain how severe of an injury Ellis suffered to his right calf, sidelining him for the final quarter and a half Friday night at the AT&T Center. But it was bad enough that Ellis needed crutches to leave the AT&T Center.

3 Points: Best backcourt for next season?

ESPNDallas.com columnist Jean-Jacques Taylor and MavsOutsider.com editor-in-chief Bryan Gutierrez join Tim MacMahon each week to run a three-man weave on a few questions on the minds of Mavericks fans. 1. What is your ideal backcourt next summer after free agency concludes? Gutierrez: Portland Trail Blazers shooting guard Wes Matthews was an ideal fit, but his Achilles injury hinders going after him. San Antonio Spurs shooting guard Danny Green could be a nice 3-and-D option.
