Mavs’ Matthews on Carlisle Resting Players: ‘I Saw Red’

But (Wesley) Matthews was definitely in a fighting mood when informed Wednesday morning that he wouldn’t be suiting up against Oklahoma City.

“I saw red,” Matthews said before watching the Mavs’ bench players get blown out  108-89. “I did a lot of cussing, but I don’t think it was at him. I think [assistant coach Jamahl] Mosley intercepted me before it got to that.”

Matthews, who earned the nickname “Iron Man” in Portland, wasn’t the only mad Maverick the morning after Dallas’ overtime loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Carlisle also made the call to rest three other starters – Dirk Nowitski, Chandler Parsons and Deron Williams — and none of them was exactly thrilled.

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is making progress from a Grade 2 left MCL sprain and will begin participating in portions of practices starting on Saturday. He will be re-evaluated in one week.

Curry, who has traveled with the team on the last two road trips, underwent his second re-evaluation on Friday and it indicated he’s ready to increase his on-court rehabilitation. The intensity level will gradually grow for the two-time MVP.

Golden State has a 3-0 lead in its first-round playoff series against the San Antonio Spurs. Curry is expected to return to action during the second round.

Warriors officials are taking a precautionary approach. They will hold Curry out as long as possible to ensure that he’s closer to 100 percent upon re-entering the lineup, sources say.
