Nowitzki may play vs. Golden State

Dirk Nowitzki has been upgraded to day-to-day for tomorrow night’s game against Golden State at American Airlines Center. Nowitzki appeared to move OK during a short workout and shooting session today with Avery Johnson.

Johnson said the next step is waiting to see how Nowitzki recovers tonight and does tomorrow morning at shootaround before deciding if he’ll play. Nowitzki could play some center, Johnson added, against the Warriors since Don Nelson likes to play four guards and one big.

Nowitzki has missed the last four games with a high left ankle sprain and mild left knee sprain. The Mavs went 2-2, with both wins coming against the LA Clippers.

Jerry Stackhouse (strained right groin) remains day-to-day. He missed the last two games of the just-completed road trip after suffering the injury at Denver.

The mavs need to boost their defense! Dirk and the 3 J's should step it all up if they want to be assured of a playoff spot...

I have a question (I'm sorry this doesn't pertain to your post about the upcoming game),
I heard on the radio yesterday that the Mavs are trading Dirk for Shaq. Is this true??

Well, Ashley, I don't think we'll be seeing that trade. For one thing it can't happen this season since the trade deadline has passed. And it won't happen in years to come. Trust me.

Hahaha thanks for responding to my question. Guess what, I found out the radio station was saying that as an April Fool's joke. I was freaking out and I fell for it, hook, line and sinker.
