The Dallas Mavericks are battling an injury bug that could have them down as many as three starters for Sunday's nationally televised matchup against the San Antonio Spurs. Dirk Nowitzki's status for the game is still unknown after the All-Star power forward has sat out the last four games with a sore knee.
The Mavericks were also without Delonte West who missed Friday's win over Utah with a strained hamstring. In that game point guard Jason Kidd pulled up lame with a strained calf and his status is in doubt for Sunday's game against the Spurs.
Despite the injuries, Dallas pulled out a 116-101 win over the Jazz on Friday behind 22 points and seven assists from Rodrigue Beaubois.
San Antonio comes into this game tied atop the Southwest standings with both the Mavericks and the Houston Rockets who all have a 12-8 record. The Spurs lost last time out dropping Friday's contest in Minnesota 87-79.
