Rick Carlisle reiterated on Thursday that Dwight Powell (right Achilles tendon) will not play again this season, even if the team were to reach the NBA Finals.
This was understood from the moment that Powell ruptured his Achilles in January, with the recovery period projected to run anywhere from nine to twelve months. But he has made strides in his recovery, as it was reported in early July that Powell was doing some light jogging and agility work. The Mavericks will be without two rotation players in Orlando, as Jalen Brunson (right shoulder) continues to rehab after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum. Jul 16 12:43 pm (EST)
