Dallas Mavericks Getting Inside 2009-01-13

Dallas Mavericks Getting Inside 2009-01-13
Here they go again. The Dallas Mavericks face life without Josh Howard for an undetermined amount of time after he sprained his left wrist Friday for a second time this season.

The best scenario would be Howard's return on Wednesday night at home against Southwest Division foe New Orleans. Howard missed Sunday's game at Sacramento, flew to Denver with the team, but planned to head back to Dallas from there for further examinations. The Mavs will play the Nuggets Tuesday night without Howard.

"It's not ideal. It's not good at all," Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said Sunday. "We've got to adjust. We've had guys step up before and we need it again."

Howard fell awkwardly in the third quarter at Phoenix and tried to brace his fall with his left wrist, which buckled on him. He missed two games in November with a similar injury.

Overall, the Mavs are 9-5 without Howard in the lineup. They went 9-2 when he was out with a sprained left ankle, so the Mavs know they can rally without him, but they've got to find additional scoring threats other than Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Terry.

KINGS 102, MAVERICKS 95: Jason Terry scored a season-high 33 points, but Dirk Nowitzki was the only other Mavs player to score in double-figures and he put up just 15 points on a poor shooting night. Dallas blew a 13-point lead early in the third quarter, fell behind by 12 and couldn't get closer than five in the waning minutes for their second straight loss.
