Dirk Nowitzki out Two Weeks


Although no official recovery timetable has been established, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said Sunday that the club expects to be without star forward Dirk Nowitzki for at least two weeks after Nowitzki suffered what the team termed a "left lower leg injury" in the third quarter of Sunday’s 88-81 loss to San Antonio.
