Dirk Nowitzki expecting to return in December
This would make Christmas a lot better for Dallas Mavericks fans.
The Mavs are off to one of their worst starts in franchise history and some of that has a lot to do with Dirk Nowitzki being sidelined for so long due to injury.
Dirk is hoping that ends soon.
“The thing is, I think when I came back it was a little too early and I had a little setback,” said Nowitzki, who sat out eight consecutive games before playing in losses to the LA Clippers and Cavaliers and getting shut down again. “Everybody’s a little worried about starting it back up too early and then starting back where we were, so we’re taking it slow now. But it’s been getting better. I’ve been increasing the workload, and it hasn’t been sore.
“Hopefully, I’ll be back in action anytime soon. Maybe I’m a Christmas gift.”
The Mavs definitely need him back as soon as possible. Before Christmas would be ideal as there isn’t a lot of time left for the Mavs to salvage any legitimate playoff hopes they may still be holding onto.
