Eddie Jones not back tonight

Eddie Jones should be returning to the lineup this week, but it won’t be tonight. The veteran swingman has been out since Nov. 13. The Mavs practice tomorrow in Toronto and face the Raptors on Wednesday.

“That may change tomorrow,” Avery Johnson said. “That may change the next day, but today he’s not ready. He’s made tremendous progress since he’s been in my rehab program.

“Hopefully he’ll hit the court soon and once he hits the court I think it will take him not as long to get ready because of being in peak condition. Weight is down. He just has to consistently run better. We really put him through a big-time test yesterday and he passed so we’ll see how he practices tomorrow.”
