Nowitzki Close to Returning to Starting Lineup?
The time is drawing closer for Dirk Nowitzki to be in the Mavericks’ starting lineup.
“I’ve worked extremely hard the last couple weeks,” Nowitzki said afterward. “I’m going to keep working and hopefully, I’ll start again maybe here in a week or so and get my minutes up again.”
Nowitzki said the timing on when to start will be a decision that he and coach Rick Carlisle make together, with input from the medical staff, obviously.
