Dirk Nowitzki: ‘I’m all-in. I want to play’

on

Dirk Nowitzki eliminated any doubt about his commitment to salvage the struggling Mavericks’ season Saturday night, when he addressed the media for the first time since being shut down a week ago due to lingering soreness in his right Achilles tendon.

“I’m all-in. I want to play,” Nowitzki said in front of his locker after his teammates pulled off the Mavs’ most lopsided win of the season, a 107-82 victory over the Chicago Bulls that improved Dallas’ record to a Western Conference-worst 4-15. “This is obviously not a career-ending injury that I’ve got. It’s something that just keeps lingering unfortunately. I can hopefully get over it.”
