NBA Regular Season: Dallas Mavericks at Utah Jazz -- Injury Updates

Stephen Dunn

NBA Regular Season 2012-2013, Game 1:

Dallas Mavericks (1-0) @ Utah Jazz (0-0)

Injury Update:


Mavericks Injuries --

  • Dirk Nowitzki (PF) OUT -- had surgery, out for another 6-8 weeks.
  • Chris Kaman (C) Day-to-day -- calf injury, did not play last night. But did travel with the team.
  • Brandan Wright (PF) Day-to-day -- ankle injury, but played last night. I expect him to play tonight.


Jazz Injuries --

  • Earl Watson (PG) OUT -- still rehabbing after off-season knee surgery.
  • Raja Bell (SF) Not With Team -- I'm thinking we need to have a status just called "Raja'd" at this stage.


Advantage --

On paper it looks like the Jazz have the advantage because, well, the other team is missing two former All-stars. Of course, we're missing our best point guard defender!! See! We're injured toOOOooO! Well, okay, I'm hesitant to give the Jazz the advantage here because we lose when we do. But, yes, we have the advantage here.
