Dirk Nowitzki Headshot

Dirk Nowitzki (Achilles) will not play in Wednesday's game.

Dirk has been on the shelf for a while now while he deals with a sore Achilles issue. He still remains without a time table to return except to say that he's missed six straight games including the upcoming Wednesday game. Dwight Powell will take a lead role in the low post now with Dirk and Bogut both out.

Andrew Bogut Headshot

Update: Andrew Bogut is expected to miss at least two weeks due to a bone bruise in his knee.

Bogut underwent an MRI on Tuesday and the results were the bone bruise that will now take a couple of weeks off of his availability. He was originally thought to need just the next few games, but this will be longer than that initial time frame obviously. Dwight Powell will be the main low post player for the next little bit with Dirk and now Bogut out of action.

Seth Curry Headshot

Seth Curry is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game.

He was supposed to return to practice on Tuesday and Head Coach Rick Carlisle is considering him day-to-day at this point. Curry has been a key offseason acquisition for Dallas so far but the ailing Mavs can't wait to get him back in the rotation at the head of the offense.

D'Angelo Russell Headshot

D'Angelo Russell (knee) will not play on Wednesday.

Though he's been cleared for on-court activities, he didn't make the trip with the team. He will likely need some time to practice before getting thrown out on the hardwood in games. L.A. will continue to use the same rotation they have been in Russell's absence for the time being.

Tarik Black Headshot

Tarik Black (ankle) ruled out for Wednesday.

Black missed practice on Tuesday which almost certainly sealed his fate for Wednesday's game. Black has been a warm body behind Timofey Mozgov at this point for L.A. but now Thomas Robinson will fill that role for Wednesday's game.

Isaiah Thomas Headshot

Isaiah Thomas did not practice on Tuesday due to a sore groin.

Head Coach Brad Stevens said in addition to him not practicing Tuesday, that there is no timetable for moving forward for him. Thomas is almost certain to miss Wednesday's game at this point but could miss more than that just depending on how the soreness lingers in his groin.

Larry Nance Headshot

Larry Nance (knee) practiced in full on Tuesday.

This is not a shock as he has said he is ready to play but Head Coach Luke Walton wants to give him some more rest before playing him. He hasn't really done much of note while on the floor for the Lakers and that should continue even when healthy.

Andrew Bogut Headshot

Andrew Bogut (knee) is expected to miss at least the next three games.

The big Australian suffered what is being called a hyperextended knee during Monday's game though it's not considered a serious ailment. Bogut has had his fair share of injuries in his pro career but this is not on the level with previous ones. He is really not a factor on the offensive side of the court but is a huge rebounder for the lowly Mavs.

Tony Parker Headshot

Tony Parker (thigh) will not play Tuesday.

Parker suffered a knee contusion in Monday's contest against the Bucks and Coach Pop indicated that he'd be out a "extended period of time" with the bruise. So playing on the second night of a back-to-back was already out of the question for the aging point guard. So far this season, he hasn't done anything that remotely gives credence to rostering him and with his latest injury, his stay on the waiver wire should continue for an extended period of time.

Gary Harris Headshot

Gary Harris (right foot) will not play Wednesday.

Reports on Harris on Sunday were that he is ahead of schedule and the team plans to ramp up his workload over the next week, however that doesn't mean he's close to playing. Harris is probably still a couple of weeks away yet meaning that Will Barton will continue to be a solid play in fantasy leagues with his minutes staying where they've been.
