Nowitzki Expects to Play Some Point in December

on

Injured Dallas star Dirk Nowitzki expects to play at some point in December, telling ESPN he might “be a Christmas gift” for the Mavericks.

Nowitzki, the sixth-leading scorer in NBA history, has been limited to only five games this season due to persistent soreness in his strained right Achilles tendon. He has not played since a Nov. 25 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, with the Mavs officially saying he is out indefinitely.
