Nowitzki update: He's jogging

The word continues to be positive on Dirk Nowitzki coming out of Dallas. He was on the court today, but it’s still too early to put on timetable on his return.

“He’s jogging a little bit,” Avery Johnson said. “But to play this game you’ve got to cut, you’ve got to slide, you’ve got to jump, you’ve got to rebound and it’s just a lot involved. We’ll have a chance to see him and we’ll see what happens.”

Johnson is putting Nowitzki through a workout tomorrow after the team flies home. Though Nowitzki wants to get back yesterday, he won’t be rushed by the organization.

“We just want to do what’s best for Dirk, first of all,” Johnson said. “We don’t want to put him out there and have him re-injure himself. Sometimes when a guy hurts an ankle or a knee, they can tend to overcompensate and something else goes wrong.”
