(Mavericks forward Harrison) Barnes’ team-high 20.3 points per game are 8.6 more than he averaged a year ago. With Nowitzki limited to only eight of a possible 33 games so far, Barnes is averaging career-bests in scoring, rebounds (5.6) and minutes (36.4). The newcomer shooting 46.3 percent from the field and a career-best 87.3 percent from the foul line is hardly the reason the Mavericks own the league’s worst offense.

“You knew he was going to put everything into it,” (Warriors head coach Steve) Kerr said of Barnes, who had 25 points and eight rebounds in Dallas’ Nov. 9 loss to the Warriors. “I’m really happy for him. He’s doing so well. It’s a different role for him, and it’s one that he was hoping for that he wasn’t going to get here. I’m glad he’s getting it in Dallas.”

Report: Jusuf Nurkic Out Indefinitely with Broken Right Wrist

Jusuf Nurkic can’t seem to catch a figurative break when it comes to literal breaks.

The 7-0 center out of Bosnian and Herzegovina suffered a broken right wrist in the third quarter of Thursday’s game versus the Pacers Thursday night at the Moda Center.

The injury occurred around the 8:40 mark of the third quarter, as Nurkic fell after contesting a drive attempt by Pacers center Myles Turner. Nurkic took a hard fall to the floor and remained there for some time before getting up and immediately heading to the locker room with members of the team’s medical staff. X-rays taken taken during the game showed a fracture to his right wrist, which, depending on the severity and location of the break, could sideline the center for the foreseeable future.
