Shane Larkin Breaks Ankle


Dallas Mavericks top 2013 NBA Draft pick Shane Larkin confirmed recent reports of his injury on his twitter account today.

Yes it is true. But if you think I won’t come back stronger then before then you got the wrong guy. #GoMavs

Larkin broke his ankle during today’s summer league practice before boarding the plane to Las Vegas. Newly acquired point guard Gal Mekel will take his place on the summer league roster.

The Mavericks also learned today the deal in place with Devin Harris included a dislocated two discovered during a physical examination. The deal is now off completely.

In a bold move to get another guard, the Mavs agreed to terms on a three-year deal with free agent Monta Ellis.
