Dirk Nowitzki’s availability for the Dallas Mavericks’ season opener is in significant doubt as he continues to slowly recover from April surgery on his left ankle.

The 40-year-old face of the franchise has yet to practice with the Mavericks this preseason and will not do so during the team’s weeklong China trip.

“This is weeks, not days, as far as getting on the court for live action,” Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said. “He is making gradual progress, but we’re not just at a point where we can talk about a hard timeline or anything like that.”

A three-team deal that would have sent Trevor Ariza to the Washington Wizards and Kelly Oubre to the Memphis Grizzlies is dead over which Brooks — MarShon or Dillon — the Phoenix Suns had believed they were getting, league sources said.

The Grizzlies and Suns didn’t communicate directly on the trade, using Washington as a conduit in coordinating the three-team deal. Washington believes it was told Dillon Brooks in conversations with Memphis, sources said. The Grizzlies insist they told Washington it was MarShon.

Memphis would not put Dillon Brooks in the trade, and in the end, the agreement was called off.

Jabari Parker won’t be with the Bulls next season.

Heck, he might not be with them much longer. The Bulls, according to sources, have engaged in trade talks with several teams regarding Parker, who fell out of new coach Jim Boylen’s rotation Thursday.

There’s considerable interest in Parker, 23, who remains a versatile scorer. Finding the right match financially is the obstacle that needs to be cleared, but there’s motivation to get a deal done.
